Fortune Cookies

These fortune cookies are very good and taste just like the ones you get in a Chinese restaurant. Have fun adding your own “fortune” inside.


3 Egg Whites

¾ Cup Sugar

½ Cup Melted Butter

½ Teaspoon Vanilla

¼ Teaspoon Almond Extract

1 Cup Unbleached Flour

2 Tablespoons Water

Preheat the oven to 375° F. Line the baking sheets with parchment paper. Make sure to have your “fortunes” ready to go using small strips of paper. In a large metal or glass bowl whip the egg whites and sugar with an electric mixer on high for 2 minutes. You want the egg whites and sugar to be frothy. Reduce the mixer speed to low and add the melted butter, vanilla, almond extract water and flour one at a time. Make sure to mix well after each addition. The consistency should look like pancake batter. Spoon the batter into 2 inch circles on the parchment paper. Make sure to leave room for spreading. Bake for 6 minutes until the edges begin to brown slightly. You don’t want to overcook because you will need to be able to mold the cookie. Quickly remove one at a time and put the “fortune” in the center and fold in half. Fold the ends of the cookie together into a horse shoe shape. If they come apart pinch them back together and let them cool. Repeat until you are finished. Makes 36 cookies.
