If you are looking for a fast and easy appetiser to share with your family and friends, these savoury palmiers with Cheese 'n' Paprika and Cheese 'n' Jalapeno Primula soft cheese should be at the top of your list!
They are made out of handful of simple and easy ingredients and taste great hot or cold!
What are palmiers?
Just in case if you are not familiar with palmiers, they are French pastries in a palm leaf shape. Made using puff pastry to create flaky and delicious layers in sweet or savoury version.
As it's been quite some time since I last posted savoury recipe (this Butternut Squash and Goats Cheese Tart was the last one), I have opted for savoury version of this delicious, buttery treat.
Super easy and effortless recipe
What's so great about this recipe, is how simple and easy it is. Whether you are hosting family or friends gathering, or just fancy a quick and delicious snack, these little guys will be perfect!
Using PRIMULA Cheese 'n' Paprika or Cheese 'n' Jalapeno makes it even easier and quicker. Because there is no need to grate or slice any cheese. You simply squeeze and spread, super convenient and very speedy! I love the creamy texture of them both, plus they have great ability to melt and add lovely, smoky and spicy flavours to any dish!
The spreads are also high in protein and calcium, gluten free and suitable for vegetarians. As if that wasn't enough, you can try them for free or get your money back if you are not satisfied with the product. You can check out their website for the full range of delicious products here
When deciding on the filling for the savoury palmiers, you can be as creative as you want. I have opted for caramelised onion because it goes sooo well with creamy, cheesy flavours. It adds that lovely sweetness and balances the whole dish really well.
However, if caramelised onion is not your thing, you may want to try using sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms or olives. Spinach or ham are also great options to explore!
Can palmiers be made ahead?
Absolutely! One of the greatest things about this recipe is the fact you can make it ahead and keep in your fridge or freezer. When unexpected guests appear at your door, these palmiers will come to your rescue!
You can prep the pastry and the filling and keep it wrapped in the fridge for up to 24 hours. When you are ready to bake, simply slice and place them on a baking tray. Bake for 10- 12 minutes, rotating the baking tray halfway through.
You can also freeze pre-sliced palmiers. Place them on a baking tray and freeze until they are solid. Transfer to freezer-safe bag or air-tight container for storage. If cooking from frozen, simply take out of the freezer, place on the baking tray and bake in preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes.

Cream cheese & caramelised onion palmiers
- baking tray
- baking paper
- 1 pack ready- rolled puff pastry (320 g )
- 150 g Primula Cheese 'n' Paprika or Cheese 'n' Jalapeno
- 1 medium red onion thinly sliced
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp dried chilli flakes (optional)
- 1 medium egg (beaten)
- Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add sliced red onion and fry for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until caramelised. Set aside.
- Roll the puff pastry and spread the soft cheese all over its surface. Sprinkle dried chilli flakes (if using) across the pastry surface, then top it with caramelised onion.
- With the longest side of the pastry rectangle facing you, roll each side of the pastry into the centre so that they meet in the middle. Brush the rolled pastry with egg wash and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 180 C (fan) and line a baking tray with some baking paper or silicone mat. Using a very sharp knife, cut into 12- 15 slices. Arrange the slices on a baking tray and bake for 10- 12 minutes until puffed up and golden brown.
