Nutella Palmiers – Jen Tilley

Two of my latest food obsessions are puff pastries and Nutella. Ever since I conquered my fear of frozen puff pastry dough a few months ago, my puff pastry usage while baking has been a little out of control. I’ve had so much fun creating and experimenting with so many appetizers and desserts. Even though I used to be terrified of baking with it, I now make sure that I always have at least two boxes of frozen puff pastry in my freezer just in case I need to make a quick savory or sweet dish.

Another item that I almost always have in my baker’s pantry is Nutella. For so long I passed by shelves full of Nutella jars when I shopped at World Market. The jars would stare at me and I would try to ignore them with all of my will power. A few months ago I caved in and decided I couldn’t leave the store without one. The reason it took me so long to actually buy a jar was because I kind of overindulged on it while studying abroad in the United Kingdom and the Czech Republic years ago. I knew that if I had a jar in my house it would be dangerous. It turned out that it was dangerous because I have found myself constantly experimenting with new ways to include it in my baked goods.

By combining my two new loves, I baked these delicious Nutella Palmiers. They only require two ingredients, five minutes of prep time and 10-15 minutes to bake. I’m telling you…this is one of the simplest treats to prepare and, if you love Nutella, you will not be disappointed. I promise.

Nutella Palmiers


  • 1 frozen puff pastry sheet, thawed
  • Nutella


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet by placing parchment paper on it.
  2. Roll out puff pastry sheet onto a lightly floured surface and, using a rolling pin, roll it into a 10×12 rectangle.
  3. Spread the Nutella onto the puff pastry in a thin layer using a spatula.
  4. Take one side of the puff pastry dough and roll the dough inward, stopping at the middle of the dough.
  5. Take the other side of the puff pastry dough and roll it inward until it meets the other roll.
  6. Press the two rolls together so that they maintain that shape when in the oven.
  7. Slice the log into ½ inch slices by using a sharp knife.
  8. Place the slices onto the parchment paper and bake for 10-15 minutes or until the dough is golden brown.
  9. Remove from the oven and place the Nutella Palmiers on a wire rack to cool.

I’ve had the pleasure of writing this guest post for The Confident Mom and I look forward to future posts!
