Friday Favorite: Palmiers

July 5th, 2013

Growing up in Colombia, we had wonderful bakeries on every corner. These were European style bakeries, filled with delicious breads and lots of wonderful treats. My favorite treat was always a palmier, or corazón as we called them down there.
Good palmiers are hard to come by here in the US. Most bakeries here are filled with bear claws and muffins instead of pastries. When Mr Chiots and I traveled to Seattle on our honeymoon we found a lovely French bakery and enjoyed them every day. Each time we’ve traveled back to Seattle we have enjoyed them. I made a small batch of them last week and we really enjoyed them.

What’s your favorite sweet treat?
