Deep-Fried Oreos (and Other Cookies)

Six days later, my house still smells like fried food.

It was worth it, though.

Step 1: mix yourself some pancake batter.

Step 2: Oil-heating.  This is when it started to get stinky.

The victims – about to take a bath in pancake batter.

Time to fry.  I didn’t have a fry thermometer, so I didn’t realize how hot I had let the oil get.  (Probably why it stunk so much.)  I didn’t even have time to get a pic of the first batch frying because they turned black so quickly.

Whoops.

The cut-cookie money shot is slightly less glamorous this way.

On to the next batch.  I managed to get a pic of them frying this time:

How cute

Second batch turned out slightly better.

Next let’s try some chocolate Toddy cookies.

I had a little bit of pancake better left over, so I dumped it in the oil by itself.  It made an interesting shape.

Fried cookies: a fun but smelly baking alternative.
