Elephant Ears

A week or so ago, someone was asking for a "elephant ear" recipe, I was just going through recipe books I could put in a garage sale and came across this one.



Fresh hot donuts.

  • Refrigerator biscuits - 1 roll
  • 1 cup cooking oil
  • 1/4 cup cinnamon sugar
  • Paper lunch bag


Place cinnamon sugar in paper lunch bag. Heat cooking oil in large frying pan. Test for hot enough: Drop of water will sizzle.

Separate dough into individual biscuits "ear". Stretch each biscuit until they just about have holes in them. They do not have to be perfect. Gently drop each "ear" into the hot oil. As soon as one side becomes golden, flip them and let second side get golden. DO NOT WALK AWAY. They burn quickly.

Place "ears" on paper towel to soak up excess oil. Shake "ears" in paper bag of cinnamon sugar. Serve warm with ice cream or just plain. Make lots, they will go quickly.

I come from CT and we call Elephant Ears, Fried Dough Pizzas. All you do to make one is get some fresh dough from your local pizza place 1lb of it. Put some flour on a flat surface and spread out the dough with a rolling pin and add a sprinkle of flour to the dough and continue to roll it till it becomes pretty thin and then cut it in to small pizza like shapes and deep fry it till it's a golden brown, when it's done you can either add sauce to it or the sugar and cinnamon to it.

This is really good and since i moved here to SC i have not made one in some time but you got me thinking about it so i'm going to make some...
