Deep-fried Oreos

Deep-fried Oreos
Makes about 45 Oreos, or 45 servings

4 teaspoons oil, plus oil for deep frying
2 cups pancake mix
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups milk
45 Oreo cookies (one 18-ounce package)
Powdered sugar, for garnish

Preheat oil in deep fryer to 375 degrees. Meanwhile, combine pancake mix,
granulated sugar, cinnamon, eggs, milk and four teaspoons oil; mix until no
lumps remain in batter. Working in small batches, dip Oreos into batter,
making sure both sides are totally covered, and slip Oreos into the hot oil.
(Cook one or more test cookies first, because it takes doing a few to get
them to turn out right; and, of course, don't eat the test cookies, Gleckler
says.) Cook until golden brown on both sides, about 15 to 30 seconds per
side; watch carefully so they don't burn. Drain cookies on absorbent paper,
sprinkle with powdered sugar, and serve hot.
