The 'Food52' blog has developed a recipe for homemade beaver tails. Beaver tails are a classic Canadian treat that consists of deep-fried pastry that has been flattened into the shape of a beaver's tail. The tasty dessert is then brushed with butter and rolled in cinnamon sugar.

While Beaver Tails are available throughout Canada, this recipe provides instructions for making the tasty treats right at home. The recipe involves making a traditional pastry dough and then flattening it into a long oval shape. The pastry is then fried until golden brown. While a classic beaver tail is made with cinnamon sugar, this recipe allows you to customize your dessert by adding toppings such as chocolate, caramel or even peanut butter.

The recipe provides the perfect way to indulge in a bit of Canadian cuisine.
