Palmiers with Agave Strawberries and Creme Fraiche

Palmiers with Agave Strawberries and Creme Fraiche

These Palmiers (also known as Elephant Ears) are the best thing in my world right now. I served them with agave sweetened strawberries and creme fraiche (also know as creme fresh).

Ingredients:

  • 1 box frozen puff pastry dough
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tspn. cinnamon
  • ½ lb. strawberries
  • ¼ cup agave syrup
  • dollop creme fresh

Directions:

  1. Clean and cut strawberries and place in a container with agave syrup (sugar or stevia) overnight.
  2. Mix sugar and cinnamon, then, sprinkle a healthy mount onto countertop of large cutting board.
  3. Unfold puff pastry dough and place onto the sugar and cinnamon.  
  4. Sprinkle more sugar and cinnamon onto of pastry dough.
  5. Roll dough with rolling pin (I used a bottle of olive oil) 
  6. Then, fold one side of the dough about 2 inches toward the center. 
  7. Now, fold the opposite side the same way. 
  8. Okay, now, fold both those sides into the middle. 
  9. Finally, fold them onto each other. 
  10. Cut the dough onto 1-inch strips. 
  11. Place and position strips on greased back pan, cut-side up, flaring ends.
  12. Place in oven and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. 
  13. When the Palmiers are done, serve the strawberries in a desert cup, smother with creme fresh, and adorn with a Palmier or two.
