For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

These Cheese Palmiers are super tasty and really hit the spot if you’re looking for something savoury to nibble on.

These have always been a real favourite of ours, and they are normally really calorific due to the buttery pastry and high-fat cheese. You need to be delicate when rolling them out but they are well worth the effort!

We like to serve these Cheese Palmiers with some carrot and cucumber sticks, and with a dip. The Arla Tomato and Basil Quark is perfect for this, with a little dusting of paprika – YUMMM!!

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Lay the puff pastry flat. Finely grate the parmesan cheese and sprinkle over the top with the paprika.
  3. Starting with the top long edge, roll it into the middle, trying to keep it as tight as possible. Roll the bottom edge up to the middle to meet and press the two rolls together a little. Leave in a fridge to chill for 15 minutes.
  4. Once chilled, cut into 32 pieces. Lay each swirl onto a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper, being careful that they don't unravel! With a rolling pin, flatten each biscuit - they layers will press together to form one whole heart shaped piece - they should be around the thickness of a pound coin.
  5. Place in the oven and cook for 13 minutes until golden and crisp. Serve warm with your choice of dip!
