Disney has been sharing its popular recipes for people to try while being cooped up at home during the coronavirus pandemic.
Disney fans sulking at home for not being able to visit their favourite amusement park due to lockdown restrictions have a chance to experience the Disney feeling by venturing into their kitchen.
Yes, Disney Parks has shared its popular cookie fries recipe for you to make at home.
The fries are normally served at Disney’s Beaches & Cream Soda Shop at its Beach Club Resort in Florida.
This is the second vegan recipe shared after releasing its famous vegan dole whip recipe earlier this month.
Chocolate cookie fries
The plant-based recipe, posted on the Disney Parks blog is super easy to make with simple everyday ingredients such as flour, powdered sugar, (plant-based) margarine, liquid egg substitute, molasses, and dairy-free chocolate chips.
You can have a party (social distancing applies) by enjoying these chocolate chip cookie sticks with several plant-based dipping sauces.
“The plant-based cookie fries are unique and yummy treat to end your meal with,” writes Alex Dunlap, food & beverage communications coordinator in the blog.
“Similar to biscotti, these chocolate chip cookie sticks come with several plant-based dipping sauces: marshmallow cream, chocolate, and strawberry.
“This recipe makes 32 cookie fries and is the perfect serving size for a small gathering of friends or a family dinner.”
- 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
- Combine flour, powdered sugar, and plant-based margarine in bowl of electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment. Beat on medium speed until smooth.
- In small bowl, combine warm water and egg substitute. Add egg substitute and molasses to 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.
Cook’s Note: Plant-based egg substitutes vary by brand and may absorb different amounts of flour and sugar. If the dough is too sticky, add 1 additional tablespoon of powdered sugar at a time until it resembles the texture of traditional cookie dough. Fold in chocolate chips, chill, and bake as directed.
The iconic theme park has been steadily expanding its plant-based menu to cater to the growing changing tastes of its patrons.
Last October, it added 400 new plant-based dishes to its parks in Florida and California, offering an assortment of vegetable-centric entrées, main meals and desserts.
Later, after officially announcing its plans to launch an official plant-based menu in the spring of 2020, the park partnered with Impossible Foods to launch the Impossible Burger to multiple dining locations at Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, and Disney Cruise Line.
