Disney’s Cookie Fries from the Beaches & Cream Soda Shop are arguably one of the park’s most fun, dunkable treats. Now, Disney is sharing the recipe for those of us social-distancing and staying at home.
In March, Disney made the decision to close its park doors amid the coronavirus pandemic. However, in an effort to lift spirits, the company has been releasing recipes for some of the most popular food items. From the famed Dole Whip to their sugary Churros, each delicious treat has been shockingly easy to make at home. Now, you can try your hand at making cookie fries, the perfect treat to dunk in chocolate, marshmallows, and more. Best of all, they are completely plant-based, meaning vegans and vegetarians can openly enjoy this sweet treat too.
“The plant-based cookie fries are unique and yummy treat to end your meal with,” Disney explained in a blog post. “Similar to biscotti, these chocolate chip cookie sticks come with several plant-based dipping sauces: marshmallow cream, chocolate, and strawberry.”
The Disney recipe makes 32 cookie fries, though you may want to double (or triple) it because they are just that good.
Here are all the ingredients you’ll need:
2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
1/2 cup plus one tablespoon plant-based margarine, softened
7 tablespoons warm water
5 tablespoons liquid egg substitute
1 tablespoon molasses
1/2 cup dairy-free mini chocolate chips
Disney’s directions are super simple to follow, too:
Combine flour, powdered sugar, and plant-based margarine in bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Beat on medium speed until smooth. (Note: You could do this step by hand if need be.)
In a small bowl, combine warm water and egg substitute. Add egg substitute and molasses to your mixer. Mix on medium speed until smooth.
Fold in chocolate chips.
Place in an 8×8-inch pan and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 325°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
Cut into 32 strips that are 1/4-inch wide and 4 inches long. Place 16 strips on each baking sheet.
Bake for 20-22 minutes, until crunchy.
Serve with your favorite plant-based chocolate, strawberry, and marshmallow dipping sauces.
Disney notes that egg substitutes can react a little differently in sugar and flour. If your dough is too sticky the Mouse House suggests adding one additional tablespoon of powdered sugar at a time until it resembles the texture of traditional cookie dough. But really, even if they are a little off from the real thing they’re still going to be delicious.
