Palmiers are French pastries shaped similarly to elephants’ ears or a butterfly. They can be sweet or savory, plain or filled – such as my Cheesy Spinach and Feta Palmiers – making them perfect to serve as hors d’oeuvres. And if you are using store-bought puff pastry (as I did in this recipe), they’re as super easy to make.
