So...deep fried pickles...YUM!

This was me when I was about 3 I think. It has nothing to do with the post, I just thought it was awesome. =] I loved my Cool Whip hat!

I ventured to a little restaurant here on campus, Scotty's, and for the first time had deep fried pickle chips! Well, I fell in LOVE with them, but the price was a little steep for what you get, $8 for some fried hamburger pickles. So, my fiance and I tried one night to re-create them, they were alright, but just not what we were looking for. So, Saturday I randomly started to make some coconut shrimp with a recipe I got out of a cookbook I got for Christmas. Well, I thought, well maybe the pickles would be good with this coating.....OMG they were amazing!!! So, we have found almost an exact recipe like the one at Scotty's and for much cheaper! If anyone is interested here it is:

3/4 c flour

3/4 c cornstarch

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp Cajun seasoning

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/4 tsp garlic powder

3 1/4 tsp baking powder

3/4 cup water

1/4 tsp oil

I lay my pickles out on a paper towel before dipping them, so they can drain a little. Dip 'em, deep fry 'em until golden brown, then drain on a different paper towel. We like to dip ours in ranch dressing, Scotty's also serves it with horseradish but I don't like that. I found that the ranch packets that Hidden Valley makes is the best ranch to use, the buttermilk recipe, not the sour cream one. Anyways...I just wanted to post this, because we're so in love with it, even though it probably has a million calories! =]

I'm here by way of New Friend Friday. I'm from the South and you know we love all things fried. I especially love fried pickles. I've tried making them a couple of times, but they just didn't turn out right. I'll be trying your recipe this weekend.
