Confucious Fortune Cookies

My grandson, his friend and I baked fortune cookies one day and it was a lot of fun.  You just have to work quickly.  We only baked six at a time and we each folded two.  Otherwise they would cool too fast and get too brittle to fold.  They were yummy!
 
Ingredients:
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. Water
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/3 cup flour

 

Instructions:
  • Print fortunes here or make your own and cut into strips.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease cookie sheet.
  • Mix egg white and sugar in a small bowl.  Add water, butter and vanilla and mix.  Stir in flour.
  • Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a cookie sheet. Swirl the batter with the back of a spoon until spread very thin and almost transparent.
  • Bake 3 to 5 minutes until lightly browned on edges.
  • Only bake a few cookies at a time to allow time for folding before they cool... about four at a time per person folding.  Be careful of burns and work very fast!
  • Put a fortune in the center of each cookie. Fold cookie in half and then fold again draping over the edge of a bowl to form the boomerang shape.
  • Place each cookie in a muffin tin cup to cool. Makes 8 cookies.
  • For a nice gift, box up cookies in a Chinese food take out box.  Ask for one at the Chinese restaurant or save one and make a template from posterboard.  Mini box template here.

Batter:

My cookie sheet may be quite worn and scratched,
but it still tastily bakes up lots of love unmatched!
