My kids love this delicious, indulgent treat. I like to give the batter a kick by adding a pinch of cinnamon and a teaspoon of vanilla extract. — Margarita Torres, Bayamon, Puerto Rico


  • 18 wooden skewers
  • 18 Oreo cookies
  • Oil for deep-fat frying
  • 1 cup biscuit/baking mix
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • Confectioners' sugar


  1. On each of eighteen 4-in. wooden skewers, thread 1 cookie, inserting pointed end of skewer into filling. Freeze until firm, about 1 hour.
  2. In a deep cast-iron skillet or deep fryer, heat oil to 375°. Place biscuit mix in a shallow bowl. In another bowl, combine egg and milk; whisk into biscuit mix just until moistened.
  3. Holding skewer, dip cookie into biscuit mixture to coat both sides; shake off excess.
  4. Fry cookies, a few at a time, until golden brown, 1-2 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels. Dust with confectioners' sugar before serving.
