Palmiers are so easy to make, but I haven’t tried savoury ones up until now. It took me about 5 seconds to decide what fillings to use – sweet caramelised onions, salty parmesan cheese and creamy goat’s cheese go so well together! These can be really simple, if you use ready-made puff pastry (obscenely easy if you use ready-rolled!), and you can use caramelised onions from a jar. Of course, if you’re looking to put a bit more effort into it (and get more credit!) you can make the puff pastry and caramelise the onions yourself. I think the tangy red onion chutney I made back in December would work a treat.

The February 2011 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Mallory from A Sofa in the Kitchen. She chose to challenge everyone to make Panna Cotta from a Giada De Laurentiis recipe and Nestle Florentine Cookies.
