KSotW: Petit Palmiers with Preserves and Cream

Okay, I can't take.... any credit for this amazing snack, actually. It's all Ms. P, who, among other things, coordinates part of our post-lunch routine. Sometimes, she treats our hard working "clean up crew" (the non-nappers who clean up the yard after lunch) to a special treat of her choosing. Sometimes, ice cream. Sometimes, marshmallows. Always something sweet.

Recently, we had a French theme-- petit palmiers with strawberry preserves, blackberries and cream, and lemonade. Mrs. P was kind enough to let me take some of the delicious, buttery, flaky cookies home, where I added my own apricot preserves and whipped cream. I had no blackberries but the version I re-created at home was still very epic. Petit yet delightfully satisfying.

Self-explanatory ingredients and assembly: take a cookie, spread on some fruit preserves of your liking, and add some puffs of whipped cream. Add some berries, too, if you have them... any kind of berry. Eat carefully.. the flaky layers may fall apart!

I am going to find a recipe for these and try to bake them soon. :)
