Easy Elephant Ears

You’ll love the classic cinnamon-sugar flavor of these crispy bite-size treats. Even more, you’ll love that they call for just three ingredients and are so simple to assemble. —Bob Rose, Waukesha, Wisconsin

    Perhaps the easiest version to make Easy Elephant Ears I have come across! It only require 3 ingredients to yield 32 servings. An outstanding sweet to offer for a dessert, or as a Brunch contribution. Each one is just 87 calories, for a real treat. Family kids can easily learn just how to cook when helping you to make these!
