With that said, I make no guarantees and reserve the right to bake every last one of the recipes if I so choose. Going forward though, I absolutely had to give this recipe a try.
When I first saw the recipe title I was so excited. I LOVE elephant ears (the fried dough kind) that you get at the fair. In fact, I'm not sure you can actually say you've gone to the fair if you don't get one. These elephant ears are not fried dough though, they're rolled puff pastry.
After I finished the folding and started the cutting I wasn't sure I'd done it right. The dough looked nothing like the picture. It was much like a towel or sheets you fold up to put in the closet. But, once it hit the oven the expanding happened like magic and my elephant ears came out perfectly.
They were delicious, crisp and buttery. Who knew such simple goodness could be made with only flour, salt, water, butter, and sugar.
