My daughter made Fortune Cookies one night when I was out, they are very, very yummy!
Kai-lan’s Fortune Cookies (from www.nickjr.com)
2 egg whites
3 tbsp melted butter
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp corn starch
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp almond extract
3 tbsp water
1. Preheat oven to 325F. Spray several cookie sheets with vegetable cooking spray.
2. Whisk the egg whites in a medium bowl. Add the remaining ingredients, whisking until smooth. Spoon a generous tablespoon of the mixture on a prepared cookie sheet. Spread the batter into a 3 1/2-inch circle. Palce three circles on the sheet pan at a time about 2 inches apart.
3. Bake the cookies until golden brown, about 10-12 minutes. Transfer the cookie sheet to a wire rack. Working with one cookie at a time, fold in half, bottom facing each other. Pull the ends downward over the rim of a glass to make the shape. Hold cookie in place for several seconds to keep the shape. Repeat with the other cookies. If they become too firm, place in the oven to reheat slightly. Repeat with the remaining batter.
4. Use Kai-lan’s Fortune Slips printable to write some fortunes together with your child. Then, slip a fortune in each cookie.
My daughter & hubby made these on Valentine’s Day together, they are really, really tasty. They are kind of “crumbly” but, a tad moist at the same time, not sure if that makes sense, anyways, they taste REALLY good!
