Tuesdays with Dorie BCM: Pailles

March 27, 2018 at 4:43 pm | Posted in BCM, cookies & bars, groups, sweet things, tuesdays with dorie | 7 Comments


If you’ve ever had a palmier, this is a similar concept…Pailles are like two palmiers sandwiched with jam. Similar to palmiers, you maneuver a sheet of puff pastry through a series of sugaring, folding and cutting to wind up with a pastry that’s a squiggle of a zillion sweet layers. I like things like this to be well-caramelized– no pale spots! I filled my bronzed pailles with huckleberry jam, finally finishing off a jar that I feel I’ve had forever. Sweet satisfaction all around.

For the recipe, see Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. It’s also here, but I have to say, I found the picture of the process included in the book’s recipe to be very helpful. I have a short attention span for long instructions. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll!

  1. So gorgeous, Steph!

  2. Oh my, those look good…so beautifully caramelized.

  3. Your cookies look so cute. We have used up some jam for this one too. A nice surprise for me with this one.

  4. I loved the caramelised puff pastry – so good!

  5. They look perfect and perfectly caramelized. I baked mine for an extra 5 minutes but the still came out a little pale. My husband actually said they looked like palmiers though he couldn’t remember the name. Maybe that is what I’ll do with the leftover puff pastry… I feel as if I might be able to tackle that after reading your description. Thanks!

  6. Yours are lovely and “French baked” ❤ I was also thankful for the step-by-step image in the book!
