How to Make Baked Deep Fried Oreos

It's only a few simple steps!

You can buy either the perforated crescent dough or the one solid sheet, either way– don't unroll it when you take it out of the can. Slice the dough like you see I've done below. Smush each piece into a circle, slightly larger than an Oreo.

Next, quickly dunk an Oreo cookie in milk. Sandwich the wet Oreo in between two pieces of dough, and pinch the sides to seal it.

Then bake for about 12 minutes, dust with powdered sugar, and eat them warm and fresh from the oven!

Tips & Serving Suggestions

These are really their VERY best served right out of the oven. They'll be okay later on, but never as good as they are warm. Just like fried food– you want to eat it fresh!

You can prepare these ahead of time, but don't bake until you're ready to serve (they won't take long).

These would also be INCREDIBLE if you opted for a powdered sugar glaze instead of a dusting. Imagine a Deep-Fried-Oreo-DONUT.

You could also add a stick if you really wanted to give them more of a fair-food-feel. Just pop a skewer inside the Oreo cookie before you wrap it in the dough. Easy peasy.

Baked "Deep Fried" Oreos are just as yummy as the real thing but with a LOT less mess and less fat!

FAQs: Deep Fried Oreos

How do you make deep fried Oreos from scratch?

  1. Heat about an inch of oil over medium heat in a large dutch oven. 
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together: 3/4 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, pinch of salt, 1/2 cup milk, 1 tablespoon vinegar, and 1/2 tablespoon oil to form a batter.
  3. Working with one cookie at a time, dip each Oreo in some extra flour and then dip it in the batter, turning to coat well. Carefully drop Oreo in oil and fry until golden, about 1-2 minutes. Flip and fry on the other side if needed.
  4. Dust with powdered sugar before serving.

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Do you have to freeze Oreos before frying?

You definitely do not need to freeze Oreos before using them in this baked version. However, if you're going to deep fry Oreos, it's a good idea to freeze them first. It helps prevent the filling from melting and leaking out during the frying process.
