    Chanukah is all about the fried food – these fried cookie dough balls are insane.

    For the Cookie Dough

    In a small bowl whisk together flour and salt. Set aside.

    In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter, brown

    sugar, and granulated sugar. Add in the egg and vanilla

    and beat until combined. On low speed gradually add

    the flour and salt. Stir in the chocolate chips. Shape the

    dough into 1-inch balls and place on a parchment lined

    baking sheet. Freeze until firm, at least one hour.

    For the Fry Batter

    In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking

    powder, salt, and sugar. Add the milk and vegetable oil,

    and whisk until the batter is smooth and free of lumps. In a deep fryer or a medium heavy pot, with

    at least 2 inches of oil, heat oil until it reaches 360°F. Take a chilled ball of cookie dough and pierce

    it with a skewer until stuck to the skewer. Holding the skewer, dip the cookie dough ball into the

    batter, swirling it in the bowl until it’s completely covered. Let excess batter drip back into the bowl,

    then lower the cookie dough ball into the oil while holding the skewer. Hold onto the skewer for

    about minute, until the fry batter has puffed a little and the ball feels a big buoyant. With another

    skewer, loosen the cookie dough ball from the previous skewer allow it to fry for another minutes,

    until golden brown. Remove them from the oil using a frying skimmer and place them on a paper

    towel-lined baking sheet to drain. Repeat with the rest of the cookie dough balls and batter. Dust the

    balls with powdered sugar before serving warm.
