How To Make Fortune Cookies

How to make your own fortune cookies. This was the first time I tried making these and they are easy once you get the hang of the baking process and get the timing right. If you are making these for an event, I would try a batch before hand to get some practice at it too see how they turn out for you. Music: Jason Shaw You Tube user/audionautix The most important thing about making these cookies is to spread the batter out enough so that it is very thin. Thin cookies will be very crisp and dry when cool. If the cookies are too thick, they won’t crisp up when cool and the fortunes inside may stick to the cookie. This is where I found the recipe: 2 large egg whites 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract 3 tablespoons vegetable oil 8 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch 1/4 teaspoon salt 8 tablespoons granulated sugar 3 teaspoons water Preparation: 1. Write fortunes on pieces of paper that are 3 1/2 inches long and 1/2 inch wide. Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease 2 9-X-13 inch baking sheets. 2. In a medium bowl, lightly beat the egg white, vanilla extract, almond extract and vegetable oil until frothy, but not stiff. 3. Sift the flour, cornstarch, salt and sugar into a separate bowl. Stir the water into the flour mixture. 4. Add the flour into the egg white mixture and stir until you have a smooth batter. The batter should not be runny, but should drop easily off a wooden spoon

To complete this How-To you will need: Paper Scissors A nontoxic pen A cookie sheet Butter or nonstick cooking spray 2 large egg whites 1/2 c. all-purpose flour 1/2 c. sugar 1 tsp. almond extract Wax paper Measuring cup Muffin tins Step 1: Create messages Cut six pieces of paper into 16 2- by ½-inch strips and write a fortune on each with a nontoxic pen. Step 2: Preheat oven Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and grease a baking sheet with butter or nonstick cooking spray. Step 3: Whisk egg whites Whisk egg whites in a medium-size bowl until they’re just foamy. Step 4: Add remaining ingredients Add the flour, sugar, and almond extract to the egg whites and beat until the mixture is smooth. Step 5: Drop the batter Drop four separate tablespoons of batter onto the cookie sheet, spaced far apart. You have enough batter for about 16 cookies, but don’t attempt to bake more than four cookies per sheet—they need room to spread. Step 6: Spread the batter Use a butter knife or the back of a spoon to spread the dropped batter
