Sure! We had all the ingredients, so we were off. Since I was the only one who grew up with a deep fryer in the group, it felt a little like home. Every Sunday growing up, we would cut biscuits into fours, throw them in the fry daddy, and smother them in powdered sugar. I miss those little doughnuts...So this literally made my night!
We rolled the cookie dough into balls and threw them in the freezer.
Heated up the oil on the stove to 350 degrees. Good thing we had a meat temperature checker!
Look at that oil!!
Top off with powdered sugar. Deep fried goodness. They actually tasted just like Fair!
Some candid photos!
The aftermath....a little gross...but soo worth it!2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 large egg (or 1/4 cup pasteurized eggs)
1/2 cup seltzer water or club soda, plus more if needed
Vegetable oil, for frying
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, and baking powder. Add the egg and half the seltzer and whisk well to combine. Add more seltzer as needed until the batter is thick and the consistency of heavy cream.
Heat the oil in a deep-fat fryer to 350 degrees F. Dip the chilled dough balls in the batter and carefully place them into the hot oil. Fry a few at a time, turning them over from time to time, until they are golden brown, about 3 minutes total. Drain on paper towels and serve while still warm.
