What's Cookin'

Fortune Cookies

Fortune Cookies

3 large egg whites
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter melted
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
3 tablespoon water
1 cup all-purpose flour (5 oz. by weight)

1) Preheat oven to 375ºF. Line sheet pan with parchment paper or silicone mat. Have your fortune strips ready to go.
2) Using stand mixer, whip egg whites and sugar on high speed for about 2 minutes, until frothy. Whip in melted butter, vanilla, almond extract and water until incorporated. Add flour and mix until flour just disappears.
3) With tablespoon measure, spoon batter onto parchment paper and spread out into even 3-inch circles. Only do 2 to 3 at a time as they set quickly and you won’t be able to fold more than that.
4) Bake cookies 7 to 8 minutes, until edges brown slightly (see note).
5) When each batch finishes baking, remove from oven and quickly flip circle over. Place note in center and fold cookie in half (a semicircle). Place semicircle onto edge of a cup, and quickly fold ends down to crimp into a fortune cookie shape. Place cookie in muffin tin to cool and hold its shape. Repeat with remaining batter and enjoy.
Note: If you let them brown too much, they’ll snap when you shape them. If they don’t brown enough, they will tear. ALSO: Experiment with food coloring, using red for Valentine’s Day.
