Elephant Ears

If you’re like me, you’ll already have 3 out of 4 ingredients needed for elephant ears in your house. If you’re a lot like me, you’ll eat them directly out of the oven while drinking whiskey Arnold Palmers. Ahhh, Sundays.

Puff pastry sheets ($5 for 2, hollaaaaaa)
Melted butter

Generously sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on your work space. If you’re using frozen puff pastry, make sure it’s fully thawed before you start. Roll it out onto the surface and put more cinnamon and sugar on the top. Then fold the two sides of the rectangle in to meet in the middle. Do this one more time, so you’re making layers. Then fold the whole thing in half at the middle crease and slice. Brush with melted butter and bake at 425 for about 12 minutes, or until they’re golden brown.


By the way, it’s officially spring here in Boston. Cherry blossoms have bloomed and Nik and I went on a very apprehensive jog along the Charles. I just signed up for my first 5k. Also I’m terrified. So, I’m hoping to include some health / wellness stuff on the blog, but I still haven’t made good on my last goal to use non-iPhone photos.
