Named for their shape, these Elephant Ears are layers of puff pastry with cinnamon and sugar. Only four ingredients to make this tasty treat.
My friend Lindsay posted a picture on her Instagram of her eating elephant ears. Ever since then, I’ve been obsessed with them. I researched tons of recipes, some more complicated than others, with yeast and without. But school just started here. Which means I get to wake up at 6:45 every morning and I’ve turned into a beast. An impatient beast. I’m soooo not a morning person. I wanted something simple and easy to satisfy my cinnamon sugar craving. These are great warm or room temperature. For breakfast…or an afternoon snack.
Sprinkle a surface with some sugar with a pinch of salt. Place your puff pastry on top.
Sprinkle some cinnamon sugar on top.
Roll the cinnamon sugar into the dough.
Roll it into a 13″ square.
Then fold it over again like you’re closing a book.
Gently slice it and place it on a parchment lined sheet. It’s not pretty. Don’t worry. When they’re done baking they will spread just like they’re supposed to.
I looked over and saw my monkeys doing this with the leftover sugar. I swear I do feed them actual meals.
And since 2 puff pastries come in a package you can make double batch or make these recipes:
