    Stacky5's Note:

    This was a recipe that my Girl Scout leader (Mona Prestigiacomo) gave my Mom because I raved about it so much after camping in an Indian teepee! (I earned the "Native American Heritage" patch that weekend! LOL!) It's really simple, and reminds me a lot of elephant ears that we get at county fairs here in Southern Indiana...

      I grew up on these, although we used oil instead of shortening and always put a bit of honey in the oil. Although these puffed up beautifully, I didn't carey for the texture. It was a bit heavy and the one's my Aunt always made were always so lite it was like eating a cloud. If I make these again, I think I'll use less flour because other than the texture, these were beautifull

      I grew up on these, only we used less shortening and turned them to cook the other side. I love these with jelly. Thanks for posting, I am going to make them again soon.
