You can check how to make Beaches & Cream's cookie fries off your list of park secrets Disney doesn’t want you to know. In celebration of Earth Day and its own environmental milestones and plant-based initiative, Walt Disney World shared iconic plant-based recipes from different restaurants and shops including these cookie fries.
Yes, you read that right — cookie fries. They're from Beaches & Cream Soda Shop, which is a part of the Beach Club Resort near Epcot and, unlike a delicious golden-fried, ketchup-slathered, crisped-to-perfection spud, they have a similar texture to biscotti and are adorned with chocolate chips. Suggested dipping sauces include marshmallow cream, chocolate and strawberry.
As we know, plant-based eats can be a real treat, and knowing how to use egg substitutes is just one easy cooking and baking ingredient swap everyone should know.
