Chinese Fortune Cookies

Makes about 16


2 large egg whites
¼ teaspoon/about 1 ml vanilla extract
1/2 cup/70 g all purpose flour
1/2 cup/105 g granulated sugar
Pinch of salt


Preheat the oven to 375°F/190°C. Line two large baking sheets with nonstick silicon mats (such as Silpat). Write fortune messages on 16 small strips of paper that are about 2×1/2 inches/5×1 cm.

Using a hand whisk or an electric mixer, beat the egg whites and vanilla in a large bowl to form soft peaks. Sift the flour, sugar and salt into another bowl, then stir the flour mixture into the egg white mixture until a thick pasty batter forms.

Spoon 2 teaspoonfuls/40 g of the cookie batter onto one of the silicon mats for each cookie, forming 4 cookies and spacing them evenly apart. Spread the batter so that each cookie is about 3 inches/7.5 cm in diameter.

Bake for about 10 minutes or until the cookies have turned a light golden color. Working quickly, gently pick up the hot wafer cookies with a palette knife or spatula and place them upside down on the baking sheet.

Place a fortune message in the middle of each cookie and fold each cookie in half to encase the fortune messages. Bend the pointed edges of each cookie backwards and towards each other.

It is important that the cookies are hot while you bend them so that they are still pliable. Once the cookies cool they will become brittle and will break if you try to bend them. Allow the wafers to cool and repeat the process several times until all cookie batter has been used.

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Butter a cookie sheet. Write fortunes on strips of paper about 4 inches long and 1/2 inch wide. Generously grease 2 cookie sheets.
    Mix the egg white and vanilla until foamy but not stiff. Sift the flour, salt, and sugar and blend into the egg white mixture.
    Place teaspoonfuls of the batter at least 4 inches apart on one of the prepared cookie sheets. Tilt the sheet to move the batter into round shapes about 3 inches in diameter. Be careful to make batter as round and even as possible. Do not make too many, because the cookie have to be really hot to form them and once they cool it is too late. Start with 2 or 3 to a sheet and see how many you can do.
    Bake for 5 minutes or until cookie has turned a golden color 1/2 inch wide around the outer edge of the circle. The center will remain pale. While one sheet is baking, prepare the other.
    Remove from oven and quickly move cookie with a wide spatula and place upside down on a wooden board. Quickly place the fortune on the cookie, close to the middle and fold the cookie in half. Place the folded edge across the rim of a measuring cup and pull the pointed edges down, one on the inside of the cup and one on the outside. Place folded cookies into the cups of a muffin tin or egg carton to hold their shape until firm.

    1 egg
    1/3 c. sugar
    1/3 c. all-purpose flour
    3 tbsp. salad oil
    2 tbsp. water
    1/2 tsp. vanilla
    1/4 tsp. cinnamon

    You will need white paper, scissors, pencil, fork, tablespoon, pancake turner, small plate, griddle or electric skillet, pastry brush, 1 or 2 muffin pans and a small bowl.
    Cut paper into strips about 3 inches long and 1/2 inch wide. Write a different fortune on each strip. (For example, “You will have a happy day.) Heat griddle over medium heat (350 degrees on electric skillet). Generously grease the hot griddle with shortening, using pastry brush.

    Beat egg in bowl with fork until foamy. Beat in sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in flour, oil, water, vanilla and cinnamon. Mix until smooth. Drop the batter by tablespoonful onto the greased hot griddle. Spread into circles about 3 1/2 inches across, using the back of the spoon. (Cookies must be very thin.)

    Cook until light brown, about 3 minutes (lift and edge and peek.) Turn with pancake turner and cook about 3 minutes on the other side


    1 egg
    1/4 c. sugar
    2 tbsp. oil
    2 tbsp. water
    1/4 c. cornstarch

    Write “fortunes” small paper strips. To make cookies, beat egg slightly. Gradually add sugar and beat until very thick. Fold in oil. Mix cornstarch with water and a little egg mixture. Beat into remaining egg mixture.
    Heat griddle to 350 degrees. Drop batter by heaping tablespoons onto griddle, forming circles. Cook about 5 minutes until set and golden on bottom. Remove from heat.

    Lay a paper on each cookie. Working quickly, fold in half, then fan bottom edges toward each other. Cool and keep in airtight container. Don’t cook too many at once, or they’ll harden before you can shape them.

    Makes 18.
