Sweet hearts for my Sweetheart

This treat was something new. Something easy and fun!

No doubt something Mom might have tried to make for her Valentines.

I had envisioned baking ‘something’ using puff pastry. Not having worked with puff pastry before, I knew I should purchase a package of puff pastry, not try making it myself. I had thought of baking some puff pasty with cinnamon and sugar.

I felt I needed some directions, instructions…. a recipe. So, off to ‘Google’ I went. I found a recipe for palmiers. While palmiers are special, these were even more so. These were laced with red decorating sugar and when baked, resembled hearts. Perfect.

Perfect treat for my Valentine, my husband.

I had fun making the palmiers. I watched them puff up in the oven as if I were a little girl…. as if Mom was the baker.

After baking for 15 minutes – what seemed a long time to ‘the little girl’ – I was finally able to remove them from the oven. Yet, the wait was not over. They needed to cool for 10 minutes.

Ahhhhh, we finally got to try the Valentines. Such a wonderful flaky treat with a light crisp.

Truly, some sweet hearts for my Sweetheart.

  1. Rochelle… sorry for the delayed response, I just saw your comment – somehow it ended up in the spam filter.

    This was a FUN project and they turned out beautifully. Glad I found the recipe. I hope you got to try it too.

    Take Care.

    • I’m not sure my baking skills are up to that level yet. Only one way to find out is to try it 🙂
      Thanks for letting me know about the spam filter. I suspected Akismet was catching my comments as spam for the past week. I have since contacted them.

      • Go ahead and try this recipe. You can do it.

        I had never worked with puff pastry before and I thought it was easy. Make sure to brush on the egg wash (beaten egg and water mixture in the recipe)… I put TOO much on and had a mess, but they still turned out fine. They were beautiful. I was impressed, so were my husband and some friends.

        Let me know how yours turn out.

  2. These look yum! I’m completely green when it comes to baking, even though I have several books on cookery and follow all these food blogs. I finally bought a cooker with oven functions 4 days ago (yayy!!) so I’m finally going to give it a go.
