Oh, how I love my Williams-Sonoma Cookbook.
From the Provence region: In markets and small epiceries throughout France, fresh and frozen puff pastry is available to prepare sweet and savory treats.
This is a quick and easy appetizer. Loved them! Especially paired with a vermouth cocktail.
Tomato and Tapenade Palmiers
1 sheet puff pastry, defrosted
4 oil packed Sundried Tomato halves
1/2 cup tapenade
1/2 teaspoon thyme
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Lightly flour a board and carefully unfold one sheet of puff pastry. Roll the pastry lightly with a rolling pin until it’s 9.5 x 11.5 inches. Spread the tomato and tapenade on the pastry sheet.
Working from the short ends, roll each end halfway to the center until both sides touch. Wrap with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes.
Then cut the dough crossways into slices about 1/2 inch thick. Place on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Place the pan in the freezer for about 10 minutes.
Bake until puffed and golden (15 to 20 minutes). Let them cool slightly before serving.
