Savory Palmiers with Prosciutto, Dijon Mustard, and Gruyere

IMGP4102

 1 recipe Puff Pastry (or one package store bought puff pastry)

8 slices Prosciutto di Parma

3 Tablespoons Dijon mustard (we like to use Trader Joe’s Garlic Aioli Dijon Mustard Suace)

1 1/2 cup Gruyere cheese, grated

flour for dusting

fresh ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Roll puff pastry out onto a floured surface until it is very flat and about 11 x 9 inches. Layer the eight slices of prosciutto on top of the puff pastry.  Using a butter knife or spatula, layer the dijon mustard on top of the prosciutto slices.  Top with grated cheese, and as much fresh ground black pepper as you like.

Begin to roll the right side of the pastry in towards the center.  Next roll the left side of the pastry in towards the center.  Press together.  Dough will not stick together, but if you brush away some of the excess flour on the center dough pieces, they will stay together better during baking.

With a sharp knife, slice the dough into 1/2-inch thick slices.  Place on a baking sheet lines with parchment paper.

Bake at 400 degrees F for about 12-15 minutes, until a deep golden brown. Let cool on the pan for 5 minutes, then remove from baking sheet and serve warm or at room temperature.

  1. This looks amazing and since I happen to have a block of gruyere leftover from a potato tart I made a few weeks ago, I think I’ll make it tonight 😉
