Welcome to Switzerland, Susanna.
Come on in…cup of tea?
Milk? Sugar? Elephant ear cookie…?
Perfect recipe for your new book When Your Elephant has the Sniffles, don’t you think?
Oh, I knew you would like it. Please help yourself to another while I tell everyone how the kids and I made them.
1 rectangle of puff pastry
1 egg (beaten)
1/3 cup of sugar mixed with
2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
Cut the rectangle of puff pastry into two smaller rectangles.
Sprinkle the first half with 2 tablespoons of the cinnamon sugar mixture.
Starting at the short side, roll the pastry towards the centre.
Then do the same starting from the other side.
Which leaves you with this…
Repeat this process with the second rectangle of pastry.
Cut each roll into approx. 12 slices and place the slices cut-side down onto a baking tray.
Whisk the egg with a fork.
Brush your elephant ears with the egg mixture.
Bake for 12 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.
Leave to cool on wire racks.
Well, there you go – elephant ears! Quite simple and fun to make. Hope you and your preschoolers enjoy this recipe. Susanna and I are going to have another cup of tea and a few more elephant ears.
