Cookie dough is apparently one of the many things they like to fry at some state fairs around the country. I didn’t notice a ton of deep fried things at the Utah state fair, but maybe I wasn’t looking hard enough. I’ve heard tell that someone deep fried beer. But I digress.
These were tasty, but a touch too sugary for me. I’m glad I didn’t put the chocolate syrup on them. Don’t get me wrong though, they are really tasty.
I also deep fried a Thin Mint because K happened to bring them. I would have deep fried some Twix too, but I discovered that I had already eaten them. You can deep fry pretty much anything your heart desires with this batter. So feel free to experiment.
The other nice thing about this recipe is it doesn’t have any eggs, and it doesn’t make a lot of dough. So if you get the hankering (yes I just used that word) for cookie dough, you can eat this guilt free. (Free of the guilt that you are putting yourself at risk of salmonella that is.)
Deep Fried Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (from taylor takes a taste.)
Makes 12 servings
4 tbsp softened butter
1/4 cup light brown sugar
3 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1-2 tbsp water
corn starch for rolling dough in
In a large mixing bowl, cream together light brown sugar, sugar and butter. While mixing, add vanilla and 1 tbsp of oil, followed by slowly adding the 1/2 cup flour. Add salt, followed by second tbsp of oil. The dough may be dry and crumbly. While mixing, slowly add enough water to give the dough a moist but not overly wet consistency. Mix in chocolate chips.
Remove from mixer and roll dough between your palms into ping pong size balls. Roll in corn starch, shake to remove excess flour.
1 cup Ice Cold Water
1 cup Self Rising flour
2 tbsp Confectioners Sugar
With a fork, mix together egg and water. Add flour and sugar to egg and water mix. Dip cookie dough balls in batter, make sure that the dough is completely covered in batter so that they won’t leak out dough when frying. Using a slotted spoon or mesh spider quickly place 3-4 at a time in 375 F oil for 1 and a half to 2 minutes minutes until golden brown on the outside. Serve in paper trays and top with chocolate sauce and powdered sugar.
