Mad Scientist Shams and Deep Fried Oreos

Yesterday I got a message from Shams

What followed

was an adventure with a small pan and lots of oil!!

But I am getting ahead of myself.

First here's Sham's making the dough

Original recipe makes 30 cookies

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 (190 degrees C).
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, and 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.

 I should mention that I am terrified of oil. The last oil related thing we did I made Ky do all the work. I made Shams do all the work this time ;) .Before eating these they were dipped heavily in icing sugar, because they weren't heart attach enough

First Bite

Tasted similar to fresh chocolate chip cookies, which is kinda odd considering, either way they were amazing.
