Palmiers won't hold their shape

I am repeatedly having trouble with puff-pastry cookies (palmiers) losing their shape and looking like "C's" instead of palm leaves or ears. Oven temperature doesn't seem to affect shape - I wonder if it could be related to the folding procedure, e.g. perhaps I folded against the layers or too many folds? Of course, it's never a problem with the Pepridge Farm "imitation" pastry - only my homemade!
