These tempting little pinwheel-shaped palmiers make the most adorably tasty mini ice-cream sandwiches, especially when paired with BluTop Ice Cream's recipe for salty caramel, brown butter ice cream or ‘Fat Man Scoop’ as we like to call it. Drizzle over extra Brown Butter for an extra buttery flavour-hit.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
320g packet ready rolled all-butter puff pastry
75g pecans, very finely chopped
80g caster sugar, divided into 30 g and 50 g
20g soft light brown sugar
1 teaspoon sea salt

Method

  1. Remove the pastry from the fridge 10 minutes before you want to use it to allow it to come just to room temperature. This will make the pastry easier to work with and less prone to tearing when rolling. Remove the pastry from the packaging and unroll.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the pecans, 30 g of the sugar, the brown sugar and sea salt. Sprinkle the mixture over the pastry, spreading it out in an even layer to the edges with your fingers. Lightly roll over the filling with a rolling pin to lightly compress it into the pastry.
  3. From the shortest end, roll up into a fat sausage, keeping the roll fairly tight. Roll the sausage in baking parchment, twisting the ends to seal. Chill in the refrigerator for 1–2 hours or in the freezer for 20 minutes until completely cold and firm to the touch, but not frozen solid if using the freezer.
  4. Preheat the oven to 160°C. Line 2 large baking sheets with baking parchment.
  5. For mini pinwheels, cut disks 5 mm wide. For larger pinwheels, cut slices 1 cm thick and use a rolling pin gently to roll out and flatten. Spread out on the prepared baking sheets and sprinkle over the remaining 50 g of sugar.
  6. Bake for 25–30 minutes or until caramelised and golden. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on the baking sheets.
  7. They can be stored for up to a week in an airtight container but will lose their crunch over time.
