Cookie fries are the latest lockdown baking trend people are attempting

First came the sourdough, then the banana bread – but now it seems people are turning their attention to a new lockdown bake.

Cookie fries are the latest sweet treat people are attempting in isolation.

As the name suggests, the snack is a hybrid of a cookie and a french fry – with the taste of the former and the shape of the latter.

Disney World is well-known for its plant-based cookie fries and last week it shared the recipe on its Parks Blog, so fans could create their own in lockdown. 

According to the recipe, bakers will need:

  • 2 ¾ cup (350g) all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup (65 g) plus one tablespoon powdered sugar
  • ½ cup (65g) plus one tablespoon plant-based margarine( softened)
  • Seven tablespoons warm water
  • Five tablespoons liquid egg substitute
  • One tablespoon molasses
  • 1/2 cup (90g) dairy-free mini chocolate chips

For the method, it says to combine flour, powdered sugar and plant-based margarine in a bowl and mix with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.

After, in a small bowl, combine warm water and egg substitute, then add egg substitute and molasses to the mixer and mix on medium speed until smooth, before adding in the chocolate chips.

Cookie French Fries — sounds delicious right? WRONG! I’m sorry to report that this new Beaches & Cream menu item has GOT to go! Since the restaurant’s reopening, this was the item I was most looking forward to trying. We all know the ice cream and milkshakes at Beaches & Cream are delicious, but this was a unique dessert option I had never seen before. My fiancé and I each took one bite, and both had looks of disgust on our faces. The cookies are dry and flavorless and not enough dipping sauces in the world would mask that. It’s worth noting that they are plant-based, but after the plant-based chili was so delicious, I had high hopes for these cookies. Boy was I wrong! Our waitress quickly noticed we were not enjoying the dish, and said that we were one of the few people who had ever ordered them, so the kitchen was looking for feedback. As nicely as we could, we gave them our feedback. But needless to say, do not order these on your next visit! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ?Menu Item: Cookie Fries ⁣⁣⁣ ?Location: Beaches & Cream Soda Shop ⁣⁣⁣ ?Park: Beach Club Resort ⁣⁣⁣ ?Price: $8.00 ⁣⁣⁣ ✍?Description: Plant-based cookies shaped into French fries, served with chocolate, marshmallow and strawberry dipping sauces ⁣⁣⁣ #waltdisneyworld #disneyworld #disney #beachesandcream #beachclubresort #sodashop #cookie #cookiefries #chocolatechip #chocolate #strawberry #marshmallow #plantbased #diningatdisney #disneydining #mickeybees

Following that, place the mixture in an 8×8-inch pan and refrigerate for 30 minutes. As it cools, preheat the oven to 325°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

Then cut the mix into 32 strips that are 1/4-inch wide and 4 inches long. Place 16 strips on each baking sheet and bake for 20-22 minutes, until crunchy.

Disney serves its plant-based cookie fries with chocolate, strawberry, and marshmallow dipping sauces – so, naturally, the recipe urges you to do the same.

Of course, there are a number of different ways to make cookie fries, such as swapping the ingredients for their dairy alternatives, or using a crinkle cutter to give them a different shape – like Chicago restaurant The Cookie Joint does with its own offering.

Alongside cookie fries, Disney has shared the recipe for its famous theme-park churros, as well as its three ingredient Dole Whip dessert.
