Aww..I know! I know that this is a little sad for these poor guys, but trust me…after one bite, you won’t even care!
In fact..sadly, you’ll be wrangling all of the adorable, innocent, little men you can grab up in your hands, …before plunging them deep into a vat of hot oil to their bubbly, fried doom of death! Dramatic? ..I think not! Delicious? ..I think SO!
Trust me~ you’ll see a side of yourself that you didn’t know existed..lol! But, it will all be worth it after you get a taste of that crispy, golden outer shell that clings to a warm, tender..slightly melted Gingerbread Man. The cookie becomes one with the deep fried crust and makes for an unforgettable, totally unique cookie experience!
This will be your new favorite holiday go-to cookie, gifts, table snacks, a quick and unique dessert~ these will have you covered!
Make a batch and sink into Gingerbread Man heaven! 🙂
What you’ll need for approx. 2 dozen fried men:
Gingerbread Men Cookies
1 cup Pancake mix
1 FULL cup of Milk, or water..as much as needed for a thin pancake batter consistency
Oil for frying..I used Canola
Powdered sugar for sprinkling
In a medium bowl, combine the pancake mix and the milk until smooth, and on the thin side of regular pancake batter.
Simply dunk those little guys into the batter, making sure to coat them evenly on both sides…
Plunge them into the hot (350 degrees) oil, to their delicious death…
Flip them so they get evenly fried, and nice and golden.
Let them cool…
Dust them with some powdered sugar to dress them up a bit..poor things…
Share them with all you love…
And make sure to have one as well…or
3 10! ~Enjoy! 🙂 …start with the head..lol!
