Top State Fair Food: Elephant Ears

A simple summer treat, oven baked, with store-bought ingredients.



1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 box refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
1/4 cup butter, melted


Heat oven to 375°F. Place two 12-inch squares waxed paper on work surface.

In a small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon.

On a work surface, unroll 1 crust. Brush with butter; sprinkle with half of the cinnamon-sugar.

Top with second crust. Brush top of second crust with butter, sprinkle with remaining cinnamon sugar; roll up.

Cut the roll into 12 (1-inch) slices, then press down slightly, and roll individually between the sheets of waxed paper to 1/4-inch slices, replacing waxed paper as needed. Place on ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake 20 to 22 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Cool on a cooling rack.
