BAKED ELEPHANT EARS
In sticking with my theme of easy lower fat recipes, I found a baked elephant ear recipe to celebrate the upcoming Johnson County Fair! This has got too be healthier than deep fried dough, right?
All purpose flour
2 tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
Pre Made Pie Dough
Break pie crust into little pieces in the bowl.
Add 3 tablespoons of hot water. Mix with a fork until the dough sticks together.
Sprinkle a wood board with flour. Pat your hands with flour. Form the dough into a big ball on the board. Divide the dough into 4 parts. Form each part into a ball.
To make elephant ears, use your whole hand to flatten each ball. (This should look like an elephant's ear.)
Press hard so the dough gets thinner. It should be about 1/4" thick. Place each piece of dough onto an ungreased baking sheet. Mix together sugar and cinnamon. Place in shaker. Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar topping on your elephant ears. Be careful not to get the sugar on the baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool. Makes 4.
