Perhaps this would have been a better post to do in October, but I thought it was an interesting topic just the same. I was curious what kinds of odd cookies and recipes are out there. So I started to surf, and you know what? There are some really crazy cookies in this world. Today’s culinary adventure is Fried Oreo Cookies. This is a cookie that has created a pretty passionate following. If you’re willing to take on the mess and time that these cookies entail then I know you will not be disappointed. While you don’t need a deep frier to make fried oreos, if you have one, they are that much easier.
Thekitchn.com has a great article on how to make battered and fried sweets of all kinds at home.
In addition to Oreos, you will need a recipe for the fried coating, commonly used to make funnel cakes.This batter recipe can make up to 19-20 fried Oreos:
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup milk
- 2 teaspoons of cooking oil
- 1 cup AP flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ tablespoon + ¼ teaspoon baking powder
- ⅛ cup + 1 tablespoon granulated white sugar
- Preheat the oil to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Mix egg and milk together with a wire whisk or fork until combined. Stir in other ingredients until batter is smooth.
- Dip your Oreo cookies into the batter while the oil is preheating.
- Fill your saucepan with enough oil to cover Oreos cookies when you drop them in.
- To make sure the oil is hot enough let a few drops of the batter trickle into the oil and see if they start frying.
- When the oil is ready carefully release your coated Oreo into the hot oil.
- The cookies will puff up and brown. Continue cooking until desired color is achieved
- Remove from oil and set on a paper towel lined plate to cool.
- Apply powdered sugar if you please.
