Palmiers have to be one of the most versatile ways of using puff pastry, filling them with your favourite flavours. A combination as simple as ham and cheese will keep all ages happy while the sun-dried tomato and pesto will keep Mum happy. They are super-quick and fun to make — perfect to whip up for Mum when she is out for an hour or so. The aromas will fill the house on her return.
