Elephant ears

Elephant Ears
1 package dry yeast
1 cup warm water
2 eggs, beaten
4 cups flour
6 tablespoons sugar
Cinnamon sugar mix
Soften yeast in warm water. Combine all ingredients except cinnamon sugar mix; mix well. Divide dough into 12 pieces. Let set for 10 minutes. Roll out on a lightly floured board. Using hands, stretch each piece into circular shape. Heat vegetable oil in 10 inch skillet (cast iron is the best). Place each circle of dough in the hot grease. Turn once; the surface will bubble and blister and should be lightly browned. Turn with spatula and broad knife. Place on absorbant paper toweling; sprinkle immediately with mix of cinnamon and sugar. If you tear a hole in the circle as it is being stretched, that will not matter.
Makes 1 dozen.
