Deep fried chocolate chip cookie dough.  Why?  Because I love you . . .


Now before you run to the nearest store and buy your favorite brand of refrigerated dough to throw into a pot of boiling oil, it isn't that simple.  Since the cookie dough in the middle of the fritter is not fully cooked even after frying, I used a modified "faux" cookie dough without eggs in the recipe, so as to not poison my loved ones as they chomp down on these golden nuggets of gooeyness!   (This modified cookie dough will not produce the beautiful chocolate chip cookie you see on the right unless you add a egg and some baking soda/powder, etc.)

The faux dough is then frozen until solid and coated in a crispy tempura batter before taking a 350F degree oil bath for a couple of minutes.  The result?  A lovely combination of fried dough on the outside with a warm gooey cookie dough center.

Step 1: Materials needed

Picture of Materials needed
Cookie dough recipe:

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/4 cup granulated (white) sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 Tablespoons milk
1 and 1/2 cups flour, all-purpose
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips



Tempura fry batter:

Vegetable oil for frying
Cornstarch for dredging
3/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons flour
2 Tablespoons powdered sugar (plus more for dusting afterwards)
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 egg, lightly beaten
3/4 cup very cold water (plus more if needed)



Equipment:

Hand-mixer, or stand-mixer, or even just a wooden spoon or spatula and your powerful muscles
Heavy-duty large frying pan or dutch-oven
Wire basket or slotted spoon for hot oil
Candy thermometer
Toothpicks

I made these and they turned out great. Everyone was too impatient and burning themselves eating them. We made the balls smaller so they cooked all the way through too.
strange but i might try it :)

The reason donuts have a hole in the middle is the center never cooked. You could roll out the dough and cut it with a donut cutter or two glasses (small one for the hole). Chocolate chip donuts!

Thanks!
You should put the picture in the last step as your main image, that way everyone can see what you're showing how to make :)

Thanks for the suggestion--I didn't know that my main image wasn't clear enough. I liked my main image mainly because of the chocolate chip cookie so people could identify easily what I meant by cookie dough. I'll see if I can take another picture with the fried dough ball cut open plus a chocolate chip cookie in it--best of both worlds!
