4-Ingredient Deep-Fried Cookie Dough

Ingredients:

  • 1 package refrigerated jumbo biscuit dough
  • Prepared cookie dough, store-bought or homemade
  • Cooking oil, such as vegetable or canola
  • Powdered sugar

*This recipe works well with other sweet fillings – such as a mini candy bar, an Oreo, a buckeye, etc. Try placing a different filling in each piece of dough to make an assortment of deep-fried treats. The instructions are the same regardless of what item is inside the biscuit dough.

Instructions:

  • Heat oil in a small pan over low to medium heat. Oil temperature should reach approximately 350 degrees.
  • While oil is warming, remove biscuits from canister.
  • Flatten each biscuit and cut it in half. You will now have 16 pieces of dough.
  • Place a small scoop of cookie dough on top of each flattened biscuit portion. Wrap the biscuit dough around the cookie dough. Pinch the dough to seal well.
  • Using tongs or a spoon, gently add cookie dough balls to hot oil. Fry each one until golden brown, being sure to brown all sides, approximately 2-3 minutes. Bubbles should appear around the edges of the dough.
  • Carefully remove from hot oil, placing each cookie dough ball on a rack or plate lined with a paper towel.
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  • Enjoy!
