Fortune Cookies

Fortune Cookies created by Linajjac

These are really fun to make for a party or informal get together. I made them for New Years' Eve this past year and wrote my own fortunes. The guests were totally impressed with them! They are a little tricky to work with--you have to be fast and shape them while they are still warm so they don't set. Recipe courtesy of Gale Gand's show "Sweet Dreams."

ingredients

directions

  • Cut a stencil out of a plastic coffee can lid in the shape of a 3-inch disk.
  • Whip the egg whites until stiff and chill.
  • In a mixer, cream the butter, then add the sugar and continue mixing.
  • Add the flour and blend in, then add the vanilla and blend again.
  • Add the chilled egg whites and mix on low until well incorporated and the batter is smooth.
  • With a small offset spatula, spread batter through the stencil so it is a circle onto parchment paper, about 6 per cookie sheet.
  • B ake in a preheated 350-degree oven until light golden brown, 7 to 8 minutes.
  • Quickly remove the pan from the oven and one at time place a fortune across the center with a bit hanging out.
  • Fold cookie circle in thirds over fortune with flaps only slightly overlapping each other.
  • Turn over and bring opposing sides together and pinch.
  • Let cool.

    These were pretty fun to make.. But they do take time. The recipe says, bake 6 @ a time. I only made 2 @ a time. They get hard really fast, so you gotta be quick. The batter should be pretty thin (BUT not too thin either) or it will turn out "crep" like. I didn't do the stencil thing. I just spread it in a circle. You also wanna grease your cookie sheet good. Also, I added about 1 tsp of vanilla instead of 1/4 tsp.. The cookie sheet should be cooled, before adding the mixture each time. Better off using 2 cookie sheets.
