Elegant and impressive with just three ingredients---crescents, butter and sugar!
can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated Crescent Dough Sheet
cup granulated sugar
tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
Heat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Separate or cut dough into 4 (4x7-inch) rectangles; if using crescent roll dough, firmly press perforations to seal.
Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the granulated sugar on cutting board. Place 2 dough rectangles on sugar; press lightly. Brush tops of dough with about 1 tablespoon butter; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar. Place one rectangle on top of another; tightly roll both short sides of the dough rectangle so they meet in the middle.
Repeat step 2.
Using a serrated knife, cut each roll into 8 slices. Place cut side down, 2 inches apart, on parchment-lined cookie sheet. Sprinkle with coarse sugar. Press each slightly to flatten.
Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely.
Instead of (or in addition to) the granulated sugar, try these variations: cinnamon and sugar or citrus zest and sugar.
Palmiers keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days. If desired, palmiers can be recrisped in a 300°F oven until heated through, about 5 minutes.
