Cookie Dough Flautas – Flour tortillas are stuffed with cookie dough, wrapped into a fluted shape and then air fried until they are crispy on the outside and gooey on the inside. Served with a chocolate sauce.
Today’s treat is one that I’ve been obsessed with ever since college. A local taco place near campus has this dessert on their menu where they wrapped cookie dough in a tortilla and then flash-fried it. The result is a crispy yet fluffy flauta with gooey cookie dough in the center. I’ve been hooked ever since.
Sadly, that restaurant only exists in Florida so I rarely get my fix of them anymore. Making them at home intimidated me because of the frying aspect. But now that I have an air fryer, there is just no excuse!
And lucky for you, I’ve perfected the recipe and am sharing it with you today. Here are my Cookie Dough Flautas!
Tips & Tricks
- Fry seam-side down. To keep the fluted shape and prevent the filling from oozing out, make sure to fry the flautas seam-side down, at least for the first few minutes. After frying for a little, the flautas are more likely to keep their shape and can be flipped to help them brown evenly.
- Cooking spray is essential. Spraying the flautas with cooking spray is so important to help achieve a crispy flauta
- Cool before serving. That cookie dough turns to lava during the cooking process. Let the flautas cool down a little before slicing and serving to make it more friendly to the roof of your mouth.
Cookie Dough Flautas
- 16½ ounces chocolate chip cookie dough chilled
- 8 soft taco tortillas
- olive oil cooking spray
- 2 tablespoons chocolate sauce for serving
- powdered sugar for serving
- Divide cookie dough into 8 equal portions. Grab one soft tortilla and place cookie dough in a 5-inch log across the center of the bottom edge. Roll tortilla over the cookie dough and into a fluted shape. Set seam-side down onto a plate and repeat with the 7 other tortillas. Place tortillas into the fridge to chill for one hour.
- Place 4 chilled flautas into a air fryer and spray all sides of the flautas with cooking spray. Close air fryer and cook at 400 degrees for 5-6 minutes, flipped about halfway through to ensure even browning.
- Remove from the air fryer and repeat with the other 4 flautas. Let flautas chill for about 5-10 minutes and then slice in half. Serve with a dusting of powdered sugar and chocolate sauce for dipping.
