Pop the palmier in the freezer for around 10-15 minutes so it can firm up a bit.

Preheat your oven to 180C / 170C Fan /350F and prepare two baking trays with baking/parchment paper.



 

Cut the palmiers

Remove the palmier roll from the freezer and get your kids to help cut it into roughly 1cm slices. Pop them on your baking trays.

Bake your mincemeat palmiers

Bake the palmiers in the oven for 12-15 minutes. They’re ready when the pastry has risen and turned golden and the mincemeat is bubbling and has caramelised on top.

Remove them from the oven, leave to cool for a few minutes before removing from your baking tray to cool completely.
