Many years ago at the annual Ledyard Fair in my hometown of Ledyard, CT, my friend Danelle introduced me to fried Oreo's. I was initially disgusted by the thought of frying a cookie, but she was pretty adamant about my trying one. Bliss...pure bliss. They were soooo good!
From then on, every fair we go to, I'm always on the lookout for fried Oreo's. I figured it was certainly possible to make these at home, but I thought it would make a huge mess, and I didn't feel like messin' with a batter and hot oil. Then I saw them pop up on (where else?) Pinterest. I pulled up the recipe and it sounded simple enough. I never thought to use Bisquick. I figured there was some special better I needed.
If you should find yourself with some Bisquick, some Oreo's, and some vegetable oil, then you need to try these. I just used a medium sized saucepan filled about half-way with oil, heated it on medium for about 5 minutes, then plopped the battered cookies right in. They take about 2 minutes on each side and I was able to do 5 at a time. Really, the mess was pretty minimal!
Strangely enough Jesse was not at ALL interested in these. He wanted plain Oreo's, so that left me to eat them...by myself since Heath was out of town. See that basket up there? I ate all but two. TWO. Yeeeeahhh...I was hurtin' for a bit afterwards, so take my advice...SHARE! Be sure that if you're making these, there are other's around who will help you eat them! :)~

1 (20 ounce) package Oreo cookies
2 cups Bisquick
1 1/2 cups milk
3 teaspoons oil
vegetable oil (enough for deep frying)
1. Blend Bisquick, eggs, milk, and 3 tsp oil until smooth.
2. Preheat your deep fryer to about 375°F (use a thermometer if you wish to deep fry in a pan).
3. Dip the cookies in the batter mixture until totally covered and then place in the hot oil (cookies will float).
4. Keep checking and turn over the cookie when bottom side of Oreo is brown (about 2 minutes).
5. Keep a close watch because it only takes a short time to brown.
6. Remove cookies and eat warm. Sprinkle with Powered sugar if desired.
