Why aren't these listed as vegetarian?

Made these a few times, very quick and easy to do but can never get them as thin or neat as in the picture! Delicious though and always well received!

I made these using roasted peppers and stilton. Yummy. can fill them with anything. I'm just doing some with leftover mincemeat and grated clementine zest!!

How do you freeze these? Do you cook them and then freeze? And if so how do u suggest reheating. Or if u feeze them before cooking, do u cook from frozen and if so for how long. Any advice wouldbe great as I need some canapé ideas for a christening bit need stuff that I can do in advance and either just pop in oven or serve as is

Can these be frozen, and if so, at what stage?

Hi there,

There is a blue star above the nutrition information which we place there whenever a recipe can be frozen. Unless otherwise stated this means the dish can be frozen once completed. In this case, you could also lay the palmiers out on a tray (this stops them sticking together) and freeze them, then gather them into a freezer bag. Lay them out again and cook from frozen. You will need to increase the cooking time so that they are golden brown when they come out of the oven.
