Fried Cookies

Cookies don’t have to be baked! In many cultures, some traditional cookie and pastry recipes are fried in hot oil. Most if not all of these can also be considered fritters. The frying gives them a wonderful richness and crispness that cannot be obtained by baking in an oven. Depending on the recipe and the thickness of the cookie, some fried cookies (like Polish Angel Wings) are crisp enough to snap in two, but others (such as Italian Struffoli) remain soft in the middle with a lovely crispness on the outside.
