• 2 quarts vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup pancake mix
  • 1 (18 ounce) package cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies (such as Oreo®)


  1. Heat oil in a deep fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Whisk milk, egg, and 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil in a large bowl until smooth. Stir in the pancake mix until no dry lumps remain.

  3. Dip cookies into batter, one at a time, and carefully place into hot oil. Fry in batches, 4 or 5 at a time, until cookies are golden brown, about 2 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate before serving.
