These cookies are as nostalgic as they are delicious! I remember eating these for breakfast with my sister in Panama. The only difference was they were three times the size. Due to their enormity & funny shape we cleverly coined them as “Elephant Ears”. After describing these to my friend Bridgette I was ecstatic to receive this recipe from her. Not only did they taste as amazing as I remember but they were a breeze to make! These were a hit on Mother’s Day.

- Place a sheet of flat puff pastry on surface & sprinkle all over with sugar.
- Take one end of puff pastry & gently roll dough until you get to the center.

- Wrap tightly in plastic wrap & freeze for an hour.
- Repeat process with remaining puff pastry & sugar.
- After an hour, remove from freezer, & cut crosswise into ½ inch thick slices (they will look like little hearts).
