"Little Hearts"-"Palmiers"

Palmiers:
Palmiers are thin, buttery puff pastry cookies that are glazed and baked to a caramelized crunch. They're a French invention, hence their name, which translates to palm, because their shape resembles palm fronds. They're also called palm leaves and elephant ears.Palmiers are pronounced as "pahlm-YAYS"in "French".I have taken this recipe from InaGarten's "BarefootContessa".I used coconut instead of cinnamon pwd.

Ingredients
1 Roll of puff pastry
1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of dessicated coconut

Crispy,Flaky,Sweet Palmiers

Method
Preheat oven to 425F.Line a large baking sheet with aluminium foil r parchment paper and spread butter on it.Thaw Puff Pastry Roll before using.Roll out puff pastry on a floured surface into Rectangular shape.In the meanwhile mix sugar and coconut pwd into a bowl and spread it on a levelled surface.Place the pastry roll on the above of the mixture and press gently.Sprinkle the mixture on the top of puffpastry.Start rolling from the leftside and bring it to the middile and do the same thing from the right side until it reaches the center.Place it in a paper and keep in freezer for 10 minutes.Cut 1/2" size pieces.Press each piece with palm and place each palmier on baking sheet.in the oven
Bake it for 7 minutes , until it turns to golden brown.Meanwhile combine corn syrup with ½ tablespoon water.Coat palmiers by using brush with corn-syrup mixture and then bake for 4 minutes.Turn cookies and brush with corn syrup another side and bake until golden brown,another 3 minutes.Cool on wire racks and store for up to a week in an air tight container.

You made it sound so easy, Vineela and they look gorgeous, much better than the storebought ones.
