Our new little jam palmiers are so cute right?! Yet ANOTHER recipe using our PIE CRUST recipe or PIE CRUST MIX. Are we obsessed with PIE CRUST you may be asking? The answer is, absolutely!

Here’s why that is true. Long before our PIE CRUST MIX was a reality, our original PIE CRUST recipe has been a blog favorite since 2015! It’s coming up on it’s 6 year blog birthday actually. That alone is so amazing! For the most part, it’s only been used for making pies and/or galettes.

With the collaboration with LEGIT BREAD COMPANY last  year, it’s become increasingly more versatile. We wanted to provide so many fun things to make with it. We’ll list just a few below, but gosh it’s been so fun to be creative with it!

A few of our other recipes using our PIE CRUST REICPE OR MIX:

Ok, back to these cute jam palmiers! We are having so much fun subbing the water in the pie crust recipe with a fruity sparkling water. We’ve used LaCroix’s new “Beach Plum” or the new “Guava São Paulo” – what a delight!!! They add a great layer of unexpected flavor to the crust. Not required, but it sure is fun.

You can use whatever jam you like. We enjoy the “Simple Fruit” variety but there are so many brands to pick from. We prefer an unsweetened jam, allowing the flavor of the fruit to shine. Don’t get too heavy handed with the jam. When we were testing them with more filling, it oozed out while it baked, creating a very sticky mess.

Don’t have an AIR FRYER no worries, you can absolutely bake these in your oven. They will take longer, but still taste the same! Either method can be baked at 350° – just make sure they’re placed on parchment paper. But really, it’s time for an AIR FRYER friends and it’s worth the price of the real estate it takes up on your countertop!

Prep time


Cooking time




  • One pie crust recipe or PIE CRUST MIX

  • ¼ cup sparkling fruity water (opt)

  • ¼ cup maple sugar

  • 3-4 tbsp no sugar raspberry jam

  • Vanilla infused sugar* (opt)


  • Prepare your air fryer as recommended by the manufacturer. For ours, we line the baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Make pie crust as directed, subbing the sparkling water for the water called for. While not required, it does add such a lovely flavor to the dough.
  • Roll dough out into a rectangle approximately 8½” x 13” between two pieces of parchment paper – doesn’t have to be perfect, use your hands to get it as close to that size as you can. Remove the top sheet of parchment paper and sprinkle the maple sugar over the top. Use your hands to spread it evenly over the dough. Lightly press sugar into the dough.
  • Place parchment paper back on top and carefully flip the dough over. Remove the top sheet of parchment paper and spread the jam evenly over the top. Less is better here, if you add too much filling it will ooze out while they bake and make for a more sticky treat.
  • Using the parchment paper to help, roll the long side (the 13” side) into the middle, repeating the same on the other side. Roll each side meeting in the middle as closely as possible.
  • Carefully slice ¾“ slices and place on the prepared baking sheet or air fryer basket. Clean off the knife every few slices as needed. You should get about 18 with a the two end pieces not quite as flat, but still bake-able. Sprinkle with vanilla infused sugar* if using. Air fry at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until the filling is slightly bubbly and the edges are golden brown. If you’re baking in a standard oven (also at 350°) plan on another 10 mins or more to get them to the golden brown color.
  • Once baked, remove from the oven to a cooling rack. Let cool slightly then enjoy! Jam palmiers can be stored at room temperature for up to 4 days. They will however never last that long!
  • *We use Balanced Bites Vanilla Infused Sugar
