Ingredients:

Directions:
Directions:
1. Scoop ice cream into 8 - 1/2 cup sized balls. Place on baking sheet and freeze until firm, about 1 hour. I usually wrap and mold each one in Saran wrap. Makes it perfectly round when it is frozen.

2. In a shallow dish, combine vanilla wafers and cinnamon. In another dish, beat egg whites until foamy. Roll ice cream balls in egg whites, then in vanilla wafers, covering ice cream completely. Repeat if necessary. (Wrap again in Saran wrap, so you can keep them in the freezer and use each time you want fried ice cream.) Freeze again until firm, 3 hours.

3. In deep fryer or large, heavy saucepan, heat oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Make sure you take out only what you are going to use because on a hot or warm day it will start to melt.

4. Using a basket or slotted spoon, fry ice cream balls 1 or 2 at a time, for 10 to 15 seconds or until golden. Drain quickly on paper towels and serve immediately.

Vanilla ice cream is coated with egg white and vanilla wafers spiced with cinnamon, then quickly fried; a great refreshing dessert especially after eating spicy Mexican food. Ready in 4 hours.
