Sweet Cinnamon Palmier Cookies

With the cold and rainy weather we’ve been having this weekend in Toronto, all I wanted to do was sit at home and eat comfort food. And for me, comfort food is anything warm, baked and delicious.

Everyone that knows me, knows I have a serious addiction to cinnamon.  You could get me to eat almost anything by telling me there’s cinnamon in it (except pumpkin pie.  I do not appreciate people trying to sneak in vegetables in my desserts!)

So this weekend, with no where to go, I decided to make sweet cinnamon palmiers.

These cookies are ridiculously easy to make – especially because I already had all the ingredients in my kitchen – and chances are, you do too!

I always have some ready-made puff pastry in the freezer – it’s so versatile! Not only that, this takes less than 10 minutes in the oven and very little prep time – perfect for those guests that show up unannounced (you know “Hi! Are you guys home? Great – we’ll be there in 10 minutes!)

Once in the oven, my entire home smelled like freshly baked cinnamon buns – probably one of my favourite scents ever!!

These little cookies are light and crispy, and gooey from the cinnamon sugar, all at the same time.

They are best eaten the day they ae baked (and in our house, we finished them all in the first night!) it can be stored in an air tight container for up to a week. 

I personally love eating these warm. I prefer to warm them up in the toaster oven to maintain that crispy touch by the Mister likes to warm them in the microwave so a softer, chewier cinnamon cookie. Either way, my kitchen filled up with that delicious warm cinnamon scent.  Definitely needed on a cold, wet day.
