// In this installment of Blueprint’s holiday recipe series, Gabi Gruber explains how to make cinnamon sugar palmiers! 


  • ½ cup demerara sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 box frozen puff pastry dough 
  • 1 egg, beaten 


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. 
  • In a bowl, combine the cinnamon, sugar, and salt. 
  • Using a pastry brush, apply the beaten egg to the puff pastry in a thin layer. Sprinkle half of the cinnamon sugar on top of the dough. 
  • At one of the long sides of the dough, roll the pastry into a sight spiral. Do this until you reach the midline of the dough. Then, follow the same process on the other side. 
  • Sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar on the top of the pastry.
  • Transfer the dough into the freezer, and chill it for approximately 20-25 minutes. 
  • Once the pastry has chilled, remove it from the freezer and transfer it to a cutting board. Then, cut the dough into equal pieces (approximately ½ inch thick) to form the cookies. Place the cookies onto a baking sheet. 
  • Bake the cookies for approximately 25-30 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool completely before serving.
