Quick Elephant Ears Recipe

Our eight children love helping make these sweet crunchy treats. We fry flour tortillas for a few seconds in oil, then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. They're fun to make for a large group. I usually do the frying, then have one of the older kids add the coating.

"Made these on-site at a Sunday School fundraiser dinner. People were eating them faster than we could make them! They were so fast, easy and delicious - my oldest son likes to make them at home now for a treat."
