  • Summary

    Making elephant ear cookies is easier than their coiled design might suggest. Spread the pecan-cinnamon mixture on store-bought puff pastry, and then roll, slice, flatten, and coat with sugar. They emerge from the oven crisp and caramelized.

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup pecan halves
    • 1/3 cup granulated sugar, plus more for surface
    • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons light-brown sugar
    • 1 3/4 teaspoons cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • All-purpose flour, for rolling
    • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry (from one 17.3-ounce package), thawed
    • 1 large egg, beaten well
