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.
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 am from up North (MN) and have been living in TX for over 20 years. In all this time I have never seen any Elephant Ears anywhere.
