Anything is good deep fried right?
This week for Tuesdays with Dorie, Teanna of Spork or Foon? selected Mrs. Vogel’s Scherben, a simple "cookie" that is deep fried then covered or dusted in powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar.
I was all game for trying this recipe. After all, I had all the ingredients on hand and I am always up for frying something. But...I would hardly call these suckers cookies. It's basically fried dough.
There was a lot of whining and hesitation going on in the P&Q for this recipe. I was actually surprised that more bakers weren't up for the recipe. But hey.
Many tried baking the dough. (As did I) And the fried version was much better! I brought these goodies into the office and my co-workers ate them right up! Everyone loved them and one coworker even expressed how it reminded him of a childhood memory. He recalled times when his mother would have leftover pie dough and she would let him bake off the leftovers and sprinkle the dough with cinnamon and sugar. :) I thought that was sweet.
I probably will never make this recipe again, but I had fun trying it! (Especially putting some into heart shapes and beginning my Valentine's celebrations!)
Head on over to Teanna's blog, which I love, for the recipe! Also, check out the Tuesdays with Dorie blogroll and see how the other bakers like the Scherben!
Next week: Chocolate Oatmeal Almost-Candy Bars (oh yeah...making them soon!)
