Palmier - a Spanish/French pastry shaped like a palm or butterfly and laminated with sugar. Made from puff pastry similar to the dough for a croissant but without the yeast. Palmier will always be my favorite pastry.
Palmier from Paris hotel, Las Vegas:
Palmier from Ladurée, Paris, France
Ladurée a pastry and cake brand based in Paris. It is more well known for its macarons than pastries.
As we were lining up to buy some macarons at the the Champs-Elysees location, we saw these delectable pastries displaying right in front of us. They were screaming, "try us. try us!"
