Mini Elephant Ears Recipe

Our kids love to help stretch the pieces of convenient frozen dough to make these ears. After I fry them, the kids brush them with butter and sprinkle on the cinnamon-sugar. Then we all dig in!—Malea Kruse, Huntertown, Indiana

"A 'cookie' fried from frozen bread dough bought at the grocery store. Children may aide you in painting on the melted butter & adding the cinnamon-sugar."
