Deep Fried Crescent Roll Wrapped Girl Scout Cookies

Girl Scout cookie season is coming to an end, so you better stock up now. If you get tired of just eating them by the boxful, here's an idea on how to mix things up: Wrap them in a crescent roll and throw it in the deep fryer. (Kind of like a cronut, but not?) Pictured below is a trifecta of (bottom to top) Tagalong, Samoa, and Thin Mint—but the beauty of this recipe is you can adjust it to fit your favorite flavor(s).

Deep Fried Crescent Roll Wrapped Girl Scout Cookies
(makes 4 servings)

Ingredients

  • 12 Girl Scout Cookies (whichever flavor or flavors you so desire)
  • 1 can Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
  • oil for deep frying
  • 1/4c powdered sugar (optional)

Directions

  1. Heat your oil in your deep fryer to 375 degrees. 
  2. Open and unroll your can of crescent rolls. Separate into four rectangles (two triangle per) and pinch together the perforated line that runs across the middle of each.
  3. Fold each of the four dough rectangles in half so you have four squares (as opposed to a really long, skinny rectangle), and place three Girl Scout cookies of your choosing in the middle. 
  4. Wrap the edges of the dough around the stack of cookies and pinch seams to seal.
  5. One at a time, fry in oil 1 to 2 minutes per side (top bottom) until the dough is a dark golden brown.
  6. Let oil drain onto paper towel lined cooling rack, and let cool for a couple of minutes.
  7. Top with powdered sugar.

This is the perfect way to warm up a cold and snowy day! If you go with a different cookie combination, let me know how it turns out.
