When I studied in Spain during college, I fell in love with a simple pastry they called Palmeritas. I admit to having purchased packages of these sugary puff pastry delights and eaten them all in one sitting. Never in a million years would I have thought of trying to make them myself or that, if I did, they could compare to the palmeritas from Sevilla. Until I saw the Barefoot Contessa make them on her show. She used a total of three ingredients : sugar, salt and Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Dough. She made it look so simple that I tried it and have been hooked ever since. Trust me, you will be the star of the Easter buffet if you bring these because not only will people swoon at their caramelized deliciousness, they will be amazed at your ability to bake like a pro. (No need to share this recipe with them!)
I am not going to copy her recipe here on my site but rather send you to her Food Network site where you can get the exact recipe in all its simple perfection.
