Deep-Fried Cookies

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

    I use to work fairs back in the day and the best and easiest way to do this is to just use Pancake mix. Its fluffier and tastes just as good if not better. Plus you don't need the extra ingredients. Just mix batter per directions and dip and enjoy. Goes great with Vanilla ice cream.
