Relek one corner

There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.

I believe that it's all in the mind. The more expectations we have of people, the angrier we become when they don't live up to our expectations. Why not we "relek one corner" once in a while because we're the ones who control how we react. We can't change people, that's for certain.

A weed is only a weed when we don’t like it. Children are only naughty if we don’t like their actions. Life only sucks if you judge it as bad.
The Elements of Living Lightly

When I did cinnamon palmiers last week, I didn't expect anything but the end result was so satisfying that I made another quick batch for teatime. It's a very frugal treat with just ready-made pastry, cinnamon sugar and butter. Very easy to make but you get a fancy-looking treat that uses very little ingredients. I can even make this everyday till I'm bored of it (which of course, I won't!).

Recipe for Cinnamon Palmiers | from Indulgence Petit Fours


4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 x 25 cm square sheet ready-rolled puff pastry
30 g unsalted butter, melted


Preheat the oven to 200°C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper.

Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle half of the cinnamon sugar onto a clean work surface, place the pastry on top and sprinkle with the remaining cinnamon sugar. Gently roll over the pastry with a rolling pin to secure the sugar, brush with half the melted butter and slice in half. Use your fingers to gently roll up one long side as tightly as possible to the middle. Repeat with the remaining side and the remaining piece of pastry. Brush with the remaining butter. Wrap the rolls tightly in plastic wrap and freeze for 15-20 minutes, or until firm.

Use a small, sharp knife to cut across each roll into 1 cm thick slices. Place the palmiers, cut side up, 1-2 cm apart, to allow for spreading, on the prepared tray. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until beginning to caramelise. Remove the tray from the oven and carefully flip the palmiers. Bake for a further 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool, caramelised side up.
