  • 3 cups Flour
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 1/2 cups Cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 9 tbsp Ice water 
  • 2 tsp Lemon juice


  • 1 cup Caster sugar 
  • 1 1/2 tsp Ground cinnamon
  • 1 qty Eggs


  • Place the flour, sugar, and salt in a mixer and mix to combine with the whisk attachment.
  • Add a quarter of the butter and mix until the butter is in tiny pieces.
  • Add the remaining butter and mix to coat the cubes with flour.
  • Combine the ice water and lemon juice in a bowl.
  • Add half the liquid to the flour mixture and mix until just combined.
  • Keep adding the liquid, 1 Tbsp at a time until the dough starts to clump together.
  • The dough will be dry at this point.
  • Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead.
  • Press the dough into a 8×4” rectangle. 
  • Wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. 
  • Mix together the sugar and cinnamon.
  • Lightly flour a large piece of parchment paper.
  • Place the dough on the parchment and roll it into a 16 by 14 inch rectangle about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Brush with the beaten egg.
  • Sprinkle the dough liberally with the cinnamon sugar, gently smoothing the sugar and patting it onto the dough. 
  • With the long side of the dough closest to you, fold 3 inches of the outer edges toward the center, leaving a 2 inch strip in the middle. 
  • Fold the outer edges in again so that both sides of the rectangles are folded in (on top of themselves).
  • Fold the dough in half, forming a rectangular log. 
  • Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm (about 1 hour).
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Slice the chilled roll into 1/2 inch thick slices and position 1 inch apart on a baking sheet.
  • Bake until the palmiers are golden brown, about 20-24 minutes.
  • Cool on a cooling rack.
