Elephant Ears!

It's that time of year again when the county and state fairs start coming to town. As a child we went every year and I always had to have an elephant ear! They are a fair must have for our family! So here's a recipe to share with my fellow elephant ear fans out there! I hope you enjoy!!

Printed from COOKS.COM

1/4 c. butter
1 c. all-purpose flour
2 tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 c. milk
3 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon

Heat oven to 425*

Grease cookie sheet with shortening.

Heat butter until melted; set aside.
Stir flour, 2 tbsp. sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium sized bowl. Stir in milk and 3 tbsp. of the melted butter until dough forms.

Sprinkle a surface lightly with flour, turn dough onto surface. Knead 10 times. Roll dough with a rolling pin. Brush with remaining butter using a pastry brush; sprinkle with mixture of 3 tbsp. sugar and the cinnamon.

Roll dough up tightly, beginning at narrow end. Pinch edge of dough, roll into seal.
Cut into 4 equal pieces with a sharp knife.
Place cut sides up on cookie sheet; pat each into a 6 inch circle.

Sprinkle with more sugar.

Bake until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes.
Immediately remove from cookie sheet with a spatula. Let cool on wire rack.

Makes 4 elephant ears.

Yummy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love chocolate chip cookies. LOVE them! Especially with pecans. I found a great recipe where they turn out big and ooie gooey! So I figured I'd share it with you all. I didn't have any chocolate chips on hand, but did have a HUGE chocolate bunny from Easter so I chopped it up and used that instead. They turned out great using that.

1 stick butter, softened but not melted
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
2 tablespoons vanilla
3 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 12-ounce package semi-sweet chocolate chips (or a chopped up chocolate bunny! :O)
(you can add nuts to yours too if you'd like!)
Preheat oven to 375*

Mix thoroughly butter, shortening, sugars, eggs and vanilla with a wooden spoon. Stir in remaining ingredients.
The batter will be stiff, and it should be. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown.
Cool slightly before removing to a wire rack.
