So this recipe has been on reserve for a rainy day.
Or in my case, a rainy week.
I knew there would be a time when I couldn’t take pictures due to the weather. And now is that time. The rain has been going on for 5 days and the sun hasn’t peaked out once. I’ve been armed with my camera ready to take pictures just in case… because I have made some killer things in the past week!
And I am tired of the rain! Seattle bloggers, how do you do it? This has motivated me to get started on making a light box though. Anyone have any tips?
Enough complaining, let’s get to the food.
That is why you are here, right?
I recently had some left over puff pastry from the edible cheese board and wanted to make something light that I could enjoy for breakfast. A croissant or turnover seemed like the obvious choice but I didn’t like that idea. I wanted this to be lighter than that. I thought about my favorite puff pastry recipes and one of them happens to be a palmier, so I thought why not a breakfast palmier?

- Fold in the left and right sides of the puff pastry about one inch. Fold the puff pastry equally on both sides until it meets in the middle.

- Let cool at least 5 minutes.
Tips and Tricks to make Blueberry Mint Palmier
There are many ways to obtain star jellies in Blueberry Mint Palmier. One of the best ways is by building cookie houses, which will produce jellies over time and only require minimal management. Jellies can be claimed once a house reaches its full capacity, which you can see by tapping on it. In order to maximize the amount of jellies you can produce, you should level up your cookie houses to the highest level. The higher level you get, the longer your cookie house will continue to produce jellies. You will need to play the game for a while before reaching the maximum level of your castle, but there are some great rewards waiting for you!
