Hand made fortune cookies for a good friend and awesome DJ’s surprise party…lots of fun!  Once you get the hang of folding them and you don’t mind a little heat on your fingers they are pretty easy.

  • 3 egg whites
  • 3/4 cup white sugar (again I used my homemade vanilla sugar)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract ( I used Disaronno )
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons water

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets, or line with parchment paper. Have fortunes ready to go on small strips of paper.
  2. In a large glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites and sugar on high speed of an electric mixer until frothy, about 2 minutes. Reduce speed to low, and stir in melted butter, vanilla, almond extract, water and flour one at a time, mixing well after each. Consistency should resemble pancake batter. Spoon the batter into 3 inch circles on the prepared baking sheets. Leave room between for spreading.
  3. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges begin to brown slightly. Quickly remove one at a time, place a message in the center, and fold in half. Fold the ends of the half together into a horse shoe shape. If they spring open, place them in a muffin tin to cool until set.
