I often feel like a military commander in my kitchen, on the day of a holiday dinner party. Barking orders, protecting the sacred cargo, holding down the fort from invaders.

My family strategically circles the kitchen until the meal is ready, slipping by the counter to snatch a stray slice of prime rib or an unwatched roll.

Over time, I’ve discovered pre-party snacks are the way to go. Munchies that are out of the kitchen, and out of my way, keep us all sane until the guests arrive and the meal is ready.

Is does take a little extra work, but I believe it’s worth the effort!

Fold the pastry sheets inward 1/4 of the width on both ends like you’re folding a pamphlet. Fold in again so that the dough meets in the middle. Fold one more time to make a roll.

Apple Cheddar Palmiers - An easy baked party snack loaded with melted cheese and spiced apples. This baked palmier recipe can be baked in minutes
Servings: 24 palmiers


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 baking apples, peeled and diced
  • 2 shallots, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 cup sharp grated cheddar
  • 2 sheets puff pastry 1 box
  • 1 large egg
  • Salt and pepper


  • Lay each piece of puff pastry on its own piece of parchment paper and roll them lightly to remove the fold lines. Preheat a skillet to medium-high. Saute the apples and shallots in butter for 3-5 minutes. Add the nutmeg, then salt and pepper to taste.
  • Top both pieces of puff pastry with apple mixture and distribute evenly. Then top them with shredded cheese.
  • Fold the pastry sheets inward 1/4 of the width on both ends. Fold in again so that the dough meets in the middle. Fold one more time. Wrap the rolls in the paper and place the rolls in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to chill before cutting. (Wrap them well if you are prepping ahead.)
