Elephant Ears or Palmiers

I came across these when I was looking on the internet for things I could bake beginning with E for this month's Alphabakes. These are palmiers, a classic French cookie, that is also known as Elephant Ears due to their shape. They are very easy to make and taste great.

All you need is puff pastry and sugar. I used a sheet of Jus-Rol

Sprinkle some sugar on your work surface and lay or roll out your pastry on top. Sprinkle the pastry with more sugar.

Roll up the pastry from both sides so you have two rolls that meet in the middle.

Slice the rolls into rounds.

Place on a grease and lined baking sheet and bake for about ten minutes.

They will expand and flatten when they cook

Done! Do you think these look like elephant ears?

I am sending this to Alphabakes, hosted this month by Ros from TheMoreThanOccasionalBaker. I'm hosting the challenge again next month so come back to my blog to find out which letter we are baking with!
