Chocolate Dipped Orange Palmiers

Posted on

Making palmiers, those deliciously crispy and buttery cookies, is a breeze with just three simple ingredients. These treats are not only easy to whip up but also perfect for dipping into a warm cup of coffee ☕️.

Here’s what you need:

Chocolate Dipped Orange Palmiers

Course Dessert
Servings 24


  • 14 oz puff pastry thawed (we used @dufourpastrykitchens – it’s so good)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • Zest from 2 large or 3 smaller oranges
  • Optional: 4 oz dark or semisweet chocolate


  • To infuse your sugar with a burst of citrus flavor, zest the oranges and massage the zest into the sugar. For an extra touch, you can spread the mixture on a baking sheet and let it bask in the sun for about an hour – it spreads better this way.
  • Now, let’s get to the fun part. Sprinkle an even layer of sugar on a clean surface, place your thawed puff pastry on top, and liberally sprinkle your orange sugar all over it. Press the sugar in with your hands and give it a gentle roll with a rolling pin. Most store-bought puff pastry will be about 10×11, but adjust accordingly. Fold, sprinkle, and fold again. Pop it in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat your oven to 400˚F.
  • Take it out of the freezer, cut into 1/2 inch thick cookies, and space them out on parchment paper (skip the silicone mat). Bake for 8-10 minutes, then flip with a spatula and bake for an additional 4-5 minutes. They should be a delightful golden brown without any overly caramelized sections.
  • For the finishing touch, dip these golden wonders in melted chocolate and sprinkle with the remaining orange sugar. Now, savor the joy of your homemade palmiers!
