Fried, gooey goodness! While these baked “fried” Oreos are deep fried, they hit a lot of those yummy flavor notes. Plus, they’re relatively mess-free, hassle-free, and are a bit healthier.
I haven’t specifically tested this recipe in my air fryer, so I can’t speak to what temperature to fry at or how long to cook. I do feel this recipe would do well in an air fryer, so if you feel adventurous, give it a try and let me know how it went! Rather than wrapping up the Oreo cookie like a traditional crescent roll, you can alternatively not unroll the crescent roll dough at all. When you open the can, keep the dough rolled up in the can shape, then using a sharp knife, slice the log into 8 equal-sized pieces.
Smash those pieces into a circular shape, then place a cookie in the center. Wrap the dough up around it. Continue with recipe as directed. If you prefer a softer texture to the cookie inside, try dunking the Oreo in some milk before wrapping it up. Chocolate lover? Try dipping the cookie in some melted chocolate before wrapping it!
8 Oreo cookies plus an additional cookie for making crushed topping (if using)
8 oz can crescent rolls
powdered sugar optional
mini chocolate chips optional
crushed Oreo cookie optional
