3 French Hens: Palmiers
Adapted from Simply Recipes

Package of puff pastry
Plenty of sugar
Spices (optional)
Parchment paper

Place rack in center of oven. Preheat oven to 400. Sprinkle about 1/4 c sugar on your work station. Roll the puff pastry to about 10 by 12 inches. Sprinkle another 1/4 c sugar on and any spices if you please. Roll the left side in about half way. Roll the right side in about half way to meet the left roll and form a sort of heart-shaped log. Press the seams together gently. Let the dough cool in the refrigerator for an hour or more.

Slice log in about 1/2 inch slices. Sprinkle each lightly with sugar. Press both sides together again so they don't come apart in baking. Place on baking sheet; they will increase in size a lot, so give them plenty of room.

Bake 10 to 15 minutes until the sugar has caramelized. Let cool on cooling rack for 10 minutes.

Now, gimme some sugar!
