Pesto and Goat Cheese Palmier: a delicious pesto and goat cheese savoury palmier to satisfy both a savoury and pastry craving!
The other day, I got a text from my neighbourhood gal pal that she had an extra sheet of puff pastry that she got from Loblaws that she didn’t have time to use before it’s expiry date so guess who got a free sheet of puff pastry? This girl!
The first thing I thought of making were palmier – when I was in Montreal I had ones that were the size of my face! I had really missed it so I decided to try to make it at home. However, I didn’t really want to have just a plain one and felt like a savoury one! I haven’t had pesto in a while and had some goat cheese in the fridge so I combined everything and made these pesto and goat cheese savoury palmiers.
Um, is the plural form of palmier, palmiers? Why is there a red squiggle under it? Is spellcheck against these yummy pesto and goat cheese savoury palmiers?!
Anyways, these pesto and goat cheese palmiers relatively easy to make. I kinda had to guess a bit since I haven’t tried making these before but they turned out pretty good! The most difficult part was rolling the edges into the middle to make the swirl and after making these, I went on Youtube and realized I could have just folded it instead. Oh well, it looks pretty much the same 😉
I didn’t feel like making my own pesto so I bought some of Jamie Oliver’s and used the entire 190g jar. As for the goat cheese, I used half of a package, around 65g.
