Elephant Ears

  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3/8 cup shortening
  • 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 quart oil for frying
  • 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
Cooking Directions
  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine milk, salt, 2 tablespoons sugar and shortening. Heat until shortening melts and sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and let cool to lukewarm, 110 degrees F. Sprinkle in yeast and let sit until foamy.
  2. Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Stir in flour to make a dough, knead until smooth, cover and let rise 30 minutes.
  3. In a large, heavy skillet or deep fryer, heat 1 inch of oil to 375 degrees F.
  4. Roll dough into 1 to 2 inch balls. Shape or roll dough into thin, round discs. Fry discs, 1 to 2 minutes on each side, until puffed and golden. Drain on paper towels.
  5. Combine cinnamon and remaining sugar. Sprinkle over warm pastries. Serve.
