Can you hear me now???
Ahhh...here we go: actual Elephant Ears! As stated previously, Elephant Ears are also known as Palmiers which is a French pastry/cookie. These are extremely easy to make if you use prepared pastry dough; if making pastry dough from scratch, a bit more complicated. I used Pillsbury's Recipe Creations (http://www.pillsbury.com/products/rolls/Refrigerated/RecipeCreations.htm) dough found in your local market right next to the Pillsbury Refridgerated Crescent Rolls. Two rolls of pastry dough come in the package. Just roll out the dough, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Roll the dough in from each side so that it meets in the center, resulting in a log. Slice the roll down into 1/2 inch slices. Places the slices on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 325 degrees. Cool on rack.
