The palmier is a quintessential French dessert. A sweet and buttery pastry that resembles a cookie, made from puff pastry and homemade vanilla bean sugar.
Vanilla sugar is very easy to make. Simply split open a vanilla bean (I like to use Madagascar or Tahitian), scrape out the vanilla caviar and combine with the sugar. After the vanilla is combined with the sugar, I like to spread it out onto a baking sheet and let the sugar and vanilla dry out overnight. I then place the completed sugar into a lidded jar with the scraped vanilla bean pod for added flavor. The vanilla sugar adds a wonderful depth of flavor to the palmier.
Beanilla is the leading online purveyor of gourmet vanilla beans and extracts. Our vision to make vanilla beans more accessible and affordable to home cooks has held steadfast since the company was founded in 2005.
