Who doesn’t like this pastry classic? So simple to make, yet so delicious and delicate. I love them when they’re crispy and small, avoiding that big trail of crumbles that puff pastries usually leave behind. I guess that’s why I made mini Palmiers, instead of the standard size!
I made these from left-over dough from a Tarte Tatin that I was asked to make yesterday. I hate to throw away something that took a lot of time and care to make (directly speaking of puff pastry). I wanted a different taste on it though, and I started searching through my pantry checking out what ingredients I had. There it was, Matcha Green Tea powder! Long time, no see…
They didn’t turn out as green as desired though, so next time I know that more powder should be added.
Finally found Matcha Green Tea! I’ve been looking for it for a decade (approximately). It’s one of those ingredients that simply doesn’t appear on your supermarket shelf, at least in this country. And I actually thought I’d have to order this online. Ah, but as my mother wisely says: Seek, and you shall find!
