BAKED ELEPHANT EARS
My mother-in-law handed down this recipe from her mother. They're a special treat-even better, I think, than those at a carnival or festival. And (shh!) they're baked, not fried. -Delores Baeten, Downers Grove, Illinois

- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
- Combine 1/2 cup of the sugar and kosher salt and pour it over a flat surface such as a wooden board or marble slab. Unfold the sheet of puff pastry onto the sugar mixture.
- Combine 1/2 cup of the sugar and the cinnamon and spread it evenly on the puff pastry. This is not about sprinkling, it's about an even covering of sugar. With a rolling pin, lightly roll the dough until it's a 13-inch square and the sugar is pressed into the puff pastry on top and bottom. Fold the sides of the square toward the center so they go halfway to the middle. Fold them again so the two folds meet exactly at the middle of the dough. Then fold one half over the other half as though closing a book. You will have 6 layers. Slice the dough into 3/8-inch slices and place the slices, cut side up, on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
- Bake the cookies for 6 minutes, or until caramelized and brown on the bottom, then turn with a spatula and bake for another 3 to 5 minutes, until caramelized on the other side. Transfer to a baking rack to cool.

ELEPHANT EAR COOKIES
Making elephant ear cookies is easier than their coiled design might suggest. Spread the pecan-cinnamon mixture on store-bought puff pastry, and then roll, slice, flatten, and coat with sugar. They emerge from the oven crisp and caramelized.

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Toast pecans on a baking sheet until fragrant and lightly toasted, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool completely.
- Grind pecans, sugars, cinnamon, and salt in a food processor until very finely chopped (mixture should resemble very coarse sand).
- Raise oven temperature to 400 degrees. Place puff pastry sheets side by side on floured parchment; press together at seam to form a 9 1/2-by-18-inch rectangle. Roll out to an 11-by-20-inch rectangle using a rolling pin. Transfer pastry on parchment to a baking sheet. Cover loosely with plastic wrap; refrigerate until firm, about 45 minutes. Brush generously with beaten egg, and evenly sprinkle with pecan mixture, patting it into dough. Starting with a short side, use one hand to roll up as tightly as possible, holding unrolled portion firmly with other palm. Brush off excess flour with a dry pastry brush as you are rolling, and press sides back into shape (they tend to splay). Roll tightly in parchment.
- Freeze dough until firm, about 20 minutes. Cut crosswise into 1-inch slices. Generously sprinkle a work surface with granulated sugar, and coat both cut sides of dough slices in sugar. Press dough slices to flatten slightly. Roll out into 6- to 7-inch rounds on sugared surface, sprinkling more sugar on top as needed. Place on parchment-lined baking sheets, 3 per sheet; refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes. Bake in batches until golden brown, 17 to 18 minutes, rotating halfway through. Let cool on baking sheets.

EASY ELEPHANT EARS
We love the ones at the fairs but hate the hassle at home. The older kids can make these and they taste close enough to satisfy us until fair season rolls around again!

- Mix sugar and cinnamon together and set aside. If a shaker is available it works great for this.
- Heat oil in a large skillet to about 1 inch and about 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- If drop of water sizzles when dropped into the oil it is hot enough.
- Open biscuits and flatten carefully as large as you can get them without breaking. It is sometimes easier to stretch them in your hands like pizza dough rather than rolling out on the counter.
- Place 1 at a time in hot oil; watch carefully and turn when the bottom starts to brown lightly.
- When both top and bottom are the same color, remove from oil to paper towels.
- Immediately brush both sides with melted butter with pastry brush, and sprinkle each side liberally with cinnamon sugar.
- Eat immediately.
