Palmiers - Balearic Style

Palmier recipe by Ina Garten - Food Network
I just finished making some Palmiers because of Sunny mentioning that she missed them from Spain. In Ibiza they make the Palmier and then coat one side in Strawberry Jam and cover the entire thing in chocolate. Sunny prefers GOOD white chocolate so I modified and used the Nestle White Chocolate Chips...I also used Seedless Raspberry Jam as we don't eat Strawberry Jam.
Ingredients:

2 cups granulated sugar
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
2 sheets puff pastry, defrosted (recommended: Pepperidge Farm)
oz's additions:
1 cup chocolate chips (use white, milk, semi-sweet - to your taste)
2 blocks coating 'chocolate' or 'white'
jam (a couple of Tablespoons of your favorite flavor)

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 450º F.
Combine the sugar and kosher salt.
Pour 1 cup of the sugar/salt mixture on a flat surface such as wooden board or marble.
Unfold each sheet of puff pastry onto the sugar and pour 1/2 cup of the sugar mixture on top, spreading it evenly on the puff pastry.
This is not about sprinkling, it's about an even covering of sugar.
With a rolling pin, roll the dough until it's 13 by 13-inches square and the sugar is pressed into the puff pastry on top and bottom.
Fold the sides of the square towards the center so they go halfway to the middle.
Fold them again so the two folds meet exactly at the middle of the dough.
Then fold 1 half over the other half as though closing a book.
You will have 6 layers.
Slice the dough into 3/8-inch slices and place the slices, cut side up, on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
Place the second sheet of pastry on the sugared board, sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar mixture, and continue as above. (There will be quite a bit of sugar left over on the board.)
Slice and arrange on baking sheets lined with parchment.
Bake the cookies for 6 minutes until caramelized and brown on the bottom, then turn with a spatula and bake another 3 to 5 minutes, until caramelized on the other side.
Transfer to a baking rack to cool.
Makes 16 Palmiers
Combine chips and coating blocks in a microwave safe container and nuke for 45 seconds.
Remove from microwave oven and stir until smooth.
If necessary, nuke again for 15-20 seconds.
Once palmiers are cooled, dip the bottom in the coating and allow to cool, dipped side up or place right-side up on parchment paper or waxed paper.
Spread jam on top side leaving a slight edge on the outer side.
Spread coating over the jam, sealing completely.
These won't last the day, so don't kid yourself.
