Fortune Cookies

I made some fortune Cookies the other night and I have to tell you this is a great Idea if you want to surprise a loved one. You can generate your own fortunes or grab some off of the internet. As usual, just be creative. :)

Read more for Ingredients and Instructions.

They turned out better than expected so get going people ;)

The Ingredients:

  • 6 egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 6 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 Cup flour
  • 2 tbsp water
Preparation time: 30 minutes

At First, place the egg whites in a medium bowl.

Add both extracts and vegetable oil, then beat for about 45 seconds.

Put the flour, corn starch, sugar and salt in a extra bowl and mix together.

Add the water to our dry bowl.

Then combine all ingredients in our original bowl. Mix well until smooth.

Place dollops of about 1 tbsp on a pan. Try to keep em smaller than this. These were my first ones and way to big. You can start at 2 per pan, once you figure the folding part out increase the number. I managed to fold up to six on one load.

Place in oven and back for about 10-12 minutes at 350°F or until edges are slightly brown. Make your fortunes while you wait :)

Quickly remove from pan and fold in half, place your fortunes inside them now!

Then fold them in half again, using the side of a cup makes it very easy. If you can't figure out how to do it properly try searching YouTube for a video of how to fold fortunes cookies.


Enjoy ;) If you have any further questions don't hesitate to ask in the comment section. Got any requests?
