    Question Flat Crispers or Elephant Ears or ?

    Our wonderful bakery just across the river makes wonderful treats that I called "elephant ears" in different states and have heard them called "flat crispers" here. Anyway they are sort of like pie crust, flat about 8 inches diameter, with sugar and cinnamon and pecan rolled inside and delicious. Anyone out there have a recipe for these?

    I looked up elephant ear receipe on google and most of them were fried. I thought what I had liked at the bakeries were pastries that were rolled thin, buttered, folded, rolled again, and again, many, many times and finally baked very sweet, sprinked with cinnamon and sugar. What were the ones like that you like to eat? I remember these being about the size of a dessert plate 6-8 inches and oh, so flakey and light and crispy.

    Sounds kind of like Beaver Tails we have up here in Canada but they are served flat not rolled.

    Exactly what I was thinking ............. And we mustn't forget the fame they received when President Obama visited The Byward Market in Ottawa and stopped to eat them!!!

    Sorry, I don't think puff pastry would taste anything like elephant ears. I am planning to try this one. You bake them and they look more like what you are talking about and I am thinking would be a good baking project this weekend. YUM!

    Try these.

    Crispies
    1 c. butter or marg.(room temp)
    1 c sour cream(8 oz. container)
    1 t. vanilla
    1/2 t. salt
    1 env. dry yeast dissolved in 1/4 c. warm water
    4 c. flour
    Mix all ingredients. Refrigerate dough at least 3 hours.
    Working with half of dough; roll out dough in sugar and cinnamon covered surface until thin(3/4 inch or less. Sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar mixture and roll into log. Cut into 3/4 inch slices. Roll each slice(sprinkling with cinnamon/sugar as you go) thin. Place on cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.


    YUMMMMMMM! Haven't made these for a while...they are too good to leave alone. They are pretty much like the "Elephant Ears" that you buy only better because they are fresh out of the oven. Enjoy!
