  • 3. Once the dough feels firm, slice palmiers out of the dough like you are cutting cookies. Place them on a lined and sprayed sheet tray. Brush the palmiers with more of the Mazola®  Corn Oil/butter mixture and sprinkle lightly with more of the sugar and cinnamon. You have your chocolate cinnamon palmiers almost ready ! Place them in the refrigerator and chill for 5-7 minutes while you preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  • 4. Bake the chocolate cinnamon palmiers for 12-15 minutes until they are golden brown.
