1½ Cups Milk
2 Tablespoons Sugar
1 Teaspoon Salt
6 Tablespoons Shortening
2 Tablespoons Yeast
4 Cups Flour

Oil to Fry In

½ Cups Sugar, for topping
3 Tablespoons Cinnamon, for topping
¼ Cups Butter, melted, for topping
In a sauce pan over medium heat mix the milk, 2 tablespoons of sugar, salt, and shortening. Heat, stirring constantly, until the shortening melts. Be careful not to scorch the milk.
Pour into a bowl and let cool to 110 degrees.
Once cooled to 110 degrees, add the yeast. Let it sit do about 10 minutes until foamy.
Add the flour but reserve about half a cup for kneading.
Mix in flour
Put reserved flour on parchment paper, put dough on top. Knead in all the flour.
Put dough in an oiled bowl and cover. Let rise in a warm spot for half an hour.
The dough should double.
Make balls of dough that are around 1-2 inches.
Roll out very thin
Heat about an inch of oil to 375 degrees. I didn't measure the temperature, I just warmed it to medium heat on my stove. Put the rolled dough in the oil. Let brown, flip, and brown on the other side.
Fry for about 15-20 seconds on each side.
Remove onto paper towels. Brush with melted butter. Don't skimp on the butter!
Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture. Be generous!
This recipe makes a lot! Like 15 elephant ears. Halve the recipe if you're not treating a crowd to these.
