Do your ears hang low?

Every time I hear the words Elephant Ears I think of the song Do your ears Hang Low or visa versa.  Whenever I think of or see a picture of Elephant Ears I think of this song.

Do your ears hang low?
Do they wobble to and fro?
Can you tie them in a knot?
Can you tie them in a bow?
Can you throw them o'er your shoulder
Like a Continental Soldier?
Do your ears hang low?

This week again for TMTT recipe I'm going to share a recipe from Gooseberry Patch cookbook...
I have a recipe featured in this cookbook too. (get details here)  this cookbook also has easy ideas for decorating and fall fun on every page.

Elephant Ears
submitted by: Tonya Adams of Magnolia, KY
p. 59

1/4 c. sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1- 10oz. tube refrigerated biscuits  (I used the jumbo biscuits)
oil for frying

For each elephant ear, press 2 biscuits together.  Roll out between 2 sheets of wax paper until as thin as possible.

In a frying pan put just enough oil to cover bottom of pan for frying.  Pre-heat oil.  Over meduim heat, fry each ear one at a time, until golden on one side. Flip gently and I mean gently.  (I splashed hot oil on my arm.  this wasn't fun)  and fry the other side.  This takes about 1 min. per side roughly.

Remove from oil.  Drain on a paper towel. Combine sugar and cinnamon together.  Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon mixture.  serve warm.  Makes 4 or 5 depending on size of biscuits used. 

By the way, this recipe was a hit with my family.  I made it for desert though it is listed in the Snack & appetizers section.  Reminds me of a pancake almost.
