Sometimes the world becomes an exhausting place to exist. Sometimes it seems like everything is not on your side, and things are just not going your way. Like when you’re in the middle of a really good episode of West Wing and your Netflix stops buffering and then it tells you the show is unavailable. Or when your cheap landlord blames a broken sink handle on you when its really because the sink has probably been there since 1923. Or when your landlord then asks you if you’re expecting because you are wearing a baggy shirt and unattractive sweats. That’s cool. That’s fun, and that is life. Sometimes though, when life gives you lemons, you just want to hurl them with everything you’ve got at your landlords face, because you know what? I don’t feel like making lemonade. Sometimes, when life happens, you have to make something delicious so that you yourself can eat it all, and not give any to anyone else. Sometimes for me, those little gifts of deliciousness are something savory, and sometimes they are really effing cute, and puffy, and perfectly sized so I can eat like a million. Sometimes those little ‘make it all ok’ treats are these Sun Dried Tomato Olive & Goat Cheese Palmiers. When life happens, eat cute things. It’s my new motto.

Sun Dried Tomato Olive & Goat Cheese Palmiers

Servings: 6


olive and sundried tomato filling

  • 3 green olives, pitted and minced
  • 6 kalamata olives, pitted and minced
  • 5 sundried tomato halves, minced
  • 4 ounces goat cheese, softened
  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander
  • ½ lemon, zested
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed about 8”x 9”


  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Place all filling ingredients into a small mixing bowl and mash and stir together until fully combined.
  • Spread mixture over the thawed puff pastry, leaving a ¼ inch border.
  • Beginning at one end, begin tightly rolling the sheet until you get to the center, then tightly roll the sheet from the other end until you have two rolls meeting in the middle.
  • Slice ½ inch slices from the log and place onto a baking sheet lined with parchment (if the puff pastry has gotten too soft, place the log in the freeze for 15 minutes before slicing).
  • Place baking sheet in the freezer for 20 minutes before baking. Bake palmiers for 17 to 22 minutes or until golden brown. Allow palmiers to cool for 5 minutes before serving.

    OH MY. These palmiers may need to happen right away. Now I’m thinking of all kinds of other things I could wrap up in a savory palmier…lemon zest and chopped green olive, maybe?

    How long can these little guys sit before they get soggy? Could you make them the day before do you think?

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      You can totally make them the day before and stick them in an airtight container in the fridge…then you can refresh them in the oven for about 5 minutes before serving.

    Speaking of bad days… tried this recipe and found out that a spinach+blue cheese was too soft when in the moment of cutting, freezing the pastry and knife and all, it all fell apart a bit and went to the oven quite unshaped and abstract in a “let’s go to the end anyway” feeling.
    Finally, i don’t really know how but during the baking the palmiers recovered their shape quite a lot :)))
    So, nice ending, though i don’t recommend to use a filling that can be watery like spinach…
