Easy Cranberry and Pistachio Palmiers

Easy Cranberry and Pistachio Palmiers

It is half term so an easy bake was on the cards for this weeks Great British Bake Off bake! A fruit savarin with chocolate work and caramel or fondant fancies didn’t seem to fit that description so I decided on palmiers. Sweet palmiers are my preference rather than savoury so my very easy cranberry and pistachio palmiers were the result! So simple to make and perfect for Christmas too.

Buttery puff pastry with sweet cranberries and  the crunch of pistachios, they are very moreish. The tray is going to be empty at this rate as they keep being stolen from the kitchen.

Ready for baking, in five minutes flat! Making the shape is as simple as rolling it up from each side to the centre.

Easy Cranberry and Pistachio Palmiers

An easy and impressive festive bake using ready-rolled puff pastry

Author: bakingqueen74
  • 375 g sheet of ready-rolled puff pastry
  • 100 g pistachios shelled and chopped
  • 100 g cranberries
  • 1 beaten egg for egg wash
  • icing sugar to dust
  1. Spread the cranberries and chopped pistachios over the pastry sheet. Roll them in gently with a rolling pin.
  2. Roll up tightly along one of the long sides, to the centre, then start again at the other side and do the same again to make the classic palmier shape.
  3. If you have time, chill now. I didn't have time and they turned out fine I thought so don't worry too much if you don't have time.
  4. Using a sharp knife, cut into 1 cm pieces. Place on  baking tray.
  5. Brush the egg wash over the pastry.
  6. Bake at 200 degrees fan for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown and crisp.
  7. Dust with icing sugar and serve!

I’m with you there Lucy, I much prefer sweet palmiers to savoury ones (though i wouldn’t decline either to be honest 😉 ). Love the sound of the cranberry & pistachio filling. Fab colours,

Your palmiers look delicious Lucy, I love the idea of a cranberry and pistachio filling, perfect for Christmas time.

Oooh yummy! I love cranberries and after making puff pastry once before I always buy pre made, it is so much easier and less time consuming x

These look divine! What a wonderful flavour combination too. I’ll have to give them a go 🙂

Very festive. I’ve just come back from Majorca and these were everywhere. I’ll be trying this recipe!
