Pigs Ears

Pigs Ears

1 egg
1/3 cup butter
1 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
salt
1 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup chop pecans

Blend egg and butter. Stir flour with baking powder and salt. Beat
egg mixture into flour mixture until smooth. Divide mixture into
18 small balls. Roll each on a floured surface until it is paper
thin. Cover with a wet towel so that dough doesn’t dry out. Heat
oil in pan to 375 degrees. Drop dough into oil and as soon as it
starts to surface, give a slight twist with the tines of a fork.
Pastry should have the look of a pig’s ear. Fry for about 1.5
minutes until brown. Drizzle with syrup and sprinkle with pecans.
