Deep-Fried Cookie Fries Recipe

Hacking Cookie Fries, the Most Memorable Fried Food From the State Fair

Cookie fries are the ultimate mashup of two of the best junk foods, and we've figured out a way to make them at home. Created by The Cookie Joint and popularized at the Texas State Fair, these crinkle-cut cookies are the next food trend anyone with a sweet tooth needs to try. The original cookie fries are baked, but we've taken them a step further by deep-frying them, because it makes them that much better.

Deep-Fried Cookie Fries


  1. 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
    2 tablespoons semolina flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
    2 eggs
    1 cup powdered sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 tablespoons sprinkles
    Oil for frying
  1. For the raspberry ketchup:
    6 ounces raspberries
    1 tablespoon water
    1/4 cup raspberry jam
  1. Special equipment:
    Crinkle cutter


  1. To make the cookies: Preheat oven to 350ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, mix together flour, semolina flour, and salt until incorporated. Use a fork to cut the butter into the mixture, like you would a shortbread cookie until it's mixed in.
  3. In a second bowl, whisk together eggs and powdered sugar until it gets light and fluffy. Add the vanilla extract and continue mixing until incorporated. Slowly mix in the flour mixture until a sticky dough forms. Add sprinkles and continue mixing.
  4. Roll the dough out and use a crinkle cutter to cut french fries out of the dough. Place cookies on the baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and let sit for 3 minutes to cool slightly.
  5. Meanwhile, heat oil in a heavy-bottomed stockpot to 350ºF. Fry cookies until the outside is just turning golden brown. Remove from the oil and let drain on a paper-towel-lined plate.
  6. To make the ketchup: Add raspberries and water into a pot over medium heat. Stir the raspberries until they boil and soften. Add the jam and continue mixing until warmed through and incorporated. Strain the mixture through a sieve to remove the seeds.
