Crescent Nutella Jam Palmiers


I like to keep a tube or two of crescent rolls in my fridge.  They are so versatile and can be used to make both sweet and savory recipes.  Today’s Saturday sweet combines crescent rolls, Nutella and jam to make a quick and easy take on the French pastry Palmiers.

I used raspberry jam, but the jam may be any flavor that you like or even orange marmalade.  Sugarless jam can be used.  The Nutella can be replaced by peanut butter, almond butter or any other butter spread that you may choose.  That means that you can use an almost endless combination of spreads and jams to make these.

The palmiers are quick and easy.  You can have this out of the oven and ready to eat in about 20 minutes.
 
Crescent Nutella Jam Palmiers
1 (8 oz.) tube crescent rolls, regular or low-fat
about 1/4 c. Nutella
about 2 T. jam (flavor or choice)

Remove roll dough from tube, place on a piece of parchment paper or foil and separate into 4 rectangles.  Press diagonal perforations together to seal.  Flatten rectangles slightly.  Spread each rectangle with about 1 T. of Nutella and 1/2 T. of jam.  You want the Nutella and jam layers to be thin or the filling will squish out when you roll them.  Roll the  long edges of each the rectangles jelly-roll fashion toward the center so they will meet.  With a very sharp knife cut each rectangle into 9 slices.  Carefully transfer to a parchment or foil-lined baking sheet.  Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 11 minutes.  Carefully remove from pan.  For a fancier cookie, drizzle with a little vanilla glaze.  Serve warm or at room temperature.  Makes 3 dozen bite-size palmiers.
