How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time! Start with this snack that's shaped like an elephant ear.
You will need: 1 stick of pie crust mix, Medium mixing bowl, Measuring spoons Hot water, Fork, Wood board, All-purpose flour, Baking sheet, 2 tablespoons sugar. 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon, Shaker or spoon
1. Have adult break pie crust into little pieces in the bowl. Add 3 tablespoons of hot water. Mix with fork till the dough sticks together.
2. Sprinkle the wood board with flour. Pat your hands with flour. Form the dough into a big ball on the board and divide into 4 parts. Form each part into a ball. To make elephant ears, use your whole hand to flatten each ball. Press hard so that the dough gets thinner. It should be about 1/4 inch thick.
3. Place each piece of dough onto an ungreased baking sheet. Mix sugar and cinnamon. Place in shaker. Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar topping on your elephant ears. Be careful not to get the sugar on the baking sheet. Have adult bake at 350º for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool.
