Fried Oreos

I call them an Oreo pancake, while another said they were more like an Oreo donut. Can we just agree to call them tasty?

I scaled back the original recipe -- This will be good for (I am guessing) about 12 Oreos. Eat these with caution! As I found out, too many will make you sick. I would plan on 2-3 per person to be safe.

Fried Oreos
Makes several servings

12 Oreo cookies
1/2 cup pancake mix
1/3 cup milk
1 egg
1 tsp of oil

Oil for frying

1. Preheat deep fryer to 375 f degrees. Combine pancake mix, milk, eggs and oil. Mix until there are no lumps. Chill in fridge, covered, for 30 minutes.

2. Dip Oreos into batter, making sure both sides are covered. Gently drop in oil. Flip after approx. 10 seconds and cook for another 15 seconds. (Times are approximated -- You oil may be too hot and cook faster, or it might be not hot enough, and take longer -- try to avoid the 'too cool' situation)

3. Drain on paper towels for a minute, dust with powdered sugar and eat while still warm -- don't let them get cold or they are gross!

  2. My mom makes these, but uses Trader Joe's canned biscuits instead of making the batter. Think I'll ask her to try your recipe next time.

    Oh - and they're extra tasty with Peppermint cookies too!

  3. @ Angie - I'd heard about these from state fair food courts. They will fry anything they can get their hands on. :)

    @ Emily - I bet the peppermint cookie tastes great.
