      Wow, these are so good, and easy too! Sprinkled sugar on the pastry board, then used a combination of sugar, nuts and cinnamon on the inside. Brushed them lightly with melted butter before baking. YUM!

      So I sent my husband to the store to buy the frozen pastry and he came home with a box of individually wrapped little pastry squares. My teenage son had some friends over so I decided to go ahead and make them. I called them Baby Elephant Ears because they came out so small, like little bite size morsels. Because my squares were so small to begin with, I had to cut mine in inch increments and lay them on the cookie sheet with the folded side down. I also used the cinnamon, walnut, sugar filling. The kids loved them! I had to make another batch and they were gone in seconds. It may not be such a bad idea to make them tiny. Anyway, they tasted wonderful and I will be making them again.

      Everyone that tried these little beauts loved them. I made them smaller so they carmelized even more, the pastries were incredible, sweet, crispy and tender. I added cinnamon to the sugar and rolled both sides of the puff pastry in the sugar mixture. I can't wait to try filling these with finely chopped chocolate macadamian nuts and cinnamon. Thank you so much for sharing this lovely quick, versatile recipe, which I will make again and again.
