Palmiers & Puff Pastry

An overhead view of 5 palmiers sitting on a white marble surface.

This class is being offered virtually. 

In this hands-on class, learn to make your own buttery laminated puff pastry*. We'll start with the very popular Bakehouse sweet treat: the palmier, a crisp caramelized French cookie. We'll also make savory cheese straws with Parmigiano Reggiano®. We'll then show you how to make turnovers. Get expert tips on making delicious and oh-so-versatile puff pastry from scratch. These are great recipes and skills to have, especially for those who like to entertain. 

You'll leave the BAKE! class with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, and everything you chose to make in class, including palmiers, cheese straws, and turnovers. 

* Please note, depending on how much puff pastry you want to make, you’ll have the option of making with one batch of dough 2 out of the 3 recipes in the class. (You can make all the recipes in class, you'll just need another batch of dough, which also freezes beautifully should you have any left over after making your third item.

What our guests have to say about the class:

I came specifically to improve previous efforts with palmiers. What I made today is many times the quality I've managed on my own. Thank you so, so much!! —Anon

My Weigh Kitchen Scale


A scale is the perfect way to take the guesswork out of your measuring, but not all scales are created equal. The My Weigh KD-8000 is one of our favorites, and it's the same version of the scale our instructors use during BAKE! Classes. We like it because it weighs accurately down to 1 gram/0.05 oz, which means even small measurements will be precise. It also has a Baker's Math function that lets you calculate percentages of other ingredients in a recipe based on the total weight of your flour—a great way to figure out your dough's hydration, or to scale a recipe up or down!

The scale is battery-powered (but comes with an AC adapter if you'd rather have it plugged in) and has a weight capacity of up to 8000 grams/17.62 lb. It features a backlit LCD readout with a protective cover, and a removable platform for easy cleaning. The price includes ground shipping.
