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.
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:
Second batch turned out slightly better.
Next let’s try some chocolate Toddy cookies.
The finished spread!
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.
