Foolproof Recipe – Palmiers 蝴蝶酥

Who doesn’t like these cute little butterfly pastries? It called Palmiers or elephant ears, but butterfly shape look so adorable. It is by far one of the most easiest and foolproof baking treats. It is so nice to look at and great with a cup of tea!


I use the store-bought puff pastry, yes I know, is not homemade. For puff pastry, it is a very tricky one, especially when you make it in summer. The ingredients have to be super cold, if not, then the butter will melt and I also melting in a hot kitchen…turn into a mess. It is time consuming and surprisingly for me, it is more expensive to make it by myself. So, life is short! I like to spend less time and get the good or better result, win -win!

外形可愛又美味的蝴蝶酥,非常酥脆,一口接一口!在家做其實是超簡單,用的是急凍酥皮 ,當然你也可以自製酥皮,但因需要長時間及精神,加上買的比自己做的酥皮更經濟實惠。只要小心摺好形狀,再焗便可,絕對是新手烘焙的不敗食譜,充滿成功感!作下午茶茶點超美味,大人小孩都愛!


You need only puff pastry and sugar, roll out the pastry if needed to a 24cm x 24cm square. Sprinkle the sugar on top, use your hand to press it and make sure it sticked. If the pastry is too dry, you can sprinkle some water on top, it would help. Then turn the pastry to the other side, sprinkle more sugar on top. 

將急凍酥皮從冰箱拿出解凍, 然後擀成24×24厘米的方形。在酥皮表面灑上糖,用手壓實,令糖黏著酥皮。如酥皮太乾,可灑少許水,可令糖黏實。反轉另一面,再灑糖。
