TOOLS AND SUPPLIES NEEDED:
- dutch oven or other heavy bottom pot
- candy thermometer or oil thermometer
- medium bowl
- whisk or hand mixer
- slotted spoon or slotted utensil
PREHEAT THE OIL: In a heavy dutch oven or heavy bottom pot, add 3-4 inches of vegetable oil for frying. It is best to use a candy thermometer to make sure the temperature is what you want. Bring to 375 ºF.
COMBINE PANCAKE BATTER INGREDIENTS: Add pancake mix, milk, vegetable oil and egg to a mixing bowl.
WHISK PANCAKE BATTER: Whisk until most of the lumps are gone. The mixture should be thick enough to coat your cookie dough ball without the batter running off. Add more mix if the batter is too thin. Let batter sit for 5 minutes.
SHAPE COOKIE DOUGH: Roll the cookie dough squares into balls. If they're very soft, put them into the freezer for 15 minutes to make them firmer.
COVER WITH BATTER: Immerse a cookie dough ball into the pancake batter with your hands. Coat completely. Allow excess batter to drip off.
FRY: Carefully put battered cookie dough into the hot oil. Flip occasionally with a slotted utensil to get an even deep golden brown on all sides.
REMOVE FROM OIL: Remove golden cookie dough bomb from the oil. Place on a wire rack covered in paper towel to absorb excess oil. Repeat with the rest of the cookie dough.
COOL: Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes. Serve.
