#foodiefriday: deep fried oreos

MaraFoodie Friday

Our new favorite book boyfriend, Neil, snacks on some oreos and milk while watching TV with Andie in Because I Love You by Tori Rigby. One of my favorite things is cookies and creme, and this is my take on a cookies and creme sundae. I ate this as comfort throughout my college years, and it serves me still. My college finals actually ending in Deep Fried Oreos and Creme. Just make these deep fried Oreos and serve over ice cream. Mmmm one of my favorites.

2 quarts vegetable oil for frying

1 large egg

1 cup milk

2 teaspoons vegetable oil

1 cup pancake mix

1 (18 ounce) package cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies (such as Oreo®)

Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F.

Whisk together the egg, milk, and 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil in a bowl until smooth. Stir in the pancake mix until no dry lumps remain. Dip the cookies into the batter one at a time, then carefully place into the hot frying oil. Fry only 4 or 5 at a time to avoid overcrowding the deep fryer. Cook until the cookies are golden-brown, about 2 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate before serving.
