I wish they would put the nutritional values with the recipes, there are several people in our family that are on special diets.

My Mom made these years ago but she made them cookie size and called them cinnamon crisps. Now I make elephant ears using puff pastry this same way. I brush the strips with melted butter before sprinkling with the cinnamon sugar. I roll them up and roll them out thin just as they have done with the pie crust. These make the best elephant ears I have ever tasted. When I make them I have to get several boxes of puff pastry because these do not sit around for long. Can never make enough. LOL

Responding to AuntGwen: That method makes sense. I will try that. Thanks.

If you have ever had "Elephant Ears" from a bakery, then you know that they are crispy, flaky, light and delicate. It would be simple to use cinnamon rolls but you would not get the same texture as the pie sheet provides. I would suggest making smaller ears by rolling only three strips instead of seven, to get the most out of this recipe. This recipe would be saved for a special Christmas morning surprise with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate.

I found the instructions a bit confusing, so looked on different sites for this recipe and found one that had photos of the different steps. what they want you to do with the first rolled strip is add it to the second strip and roll it up, continue adding the rolled up strips to the next strip until all seven strips have been rolled. when your done it resembles a cinnamon roll. hope this helps

I use pizza dough but deep fry them and no twisting just flatten to a quarter inch and fry them on both sides and top with chocolate/powered sugar/sugar-spice . if you make them small for kids you can get several out of one can but will want more.

And where are the "NUTRITION" stats? No informational photo as promised, either! Only makes two cookies? What a waste of time!

This sounds good; however, wouldn't it be simpler to flatten with a rolling pin Pillsbury cinnamon roll. You would also get eight of them.
