Easy Elephant Ears

If you're looking for a super easy, three ingredient treat to make, look no further.  Here it is.
I saw this idea in a magazine and tried it out on my kids.  These little puppies vanished in about 3 seconds, before I could even take a picture, so I think the kids liked them.
It was my first experience with puff pastry and it wasn't scary like I thought it was going to be.  I am kicking myself for not trying this stuff out sooner.
Next time we're going to make chocolate pastries with Nutella.

1 pkg. frozen puff pastry, thawed
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon

*Roll out  one sheet of pastry on a lightly floured surface.  Mix sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle half of it over pastry.  Working from both sides, roll up each side toward the center until the two side meet.  Cut into 1/2 inch slices.  Place on a cookie sheet and then repeat with the other pastry sheet.  Bake at 375 for 15 minutes until golden brown and crisp.

*Next time I'm going to make some icing to drizzle over them.

I love the cinnamon and sugar version. I think the glaze would be amazing. These were a favorite cookie of mine as a child. I always picked the palmier at the bakery. Yum.

Yum rach. You cook even add a layer of butter under the cinn/sugar and that would make it yummier. I'm always a fan of butter. I must be Lana's daughter.
