A Fortunate End to a Meal

It's Chinese New Year and although fortune cookies originated in San Francisco, I can't think of a better time to make these. They can be made up to a week before a party and are a great conversation starter as well. Although, since it is at the end of a meal, I guess it could be called a conversation ender.

First, you need to think up a bunch of fortunes, print them and cut them out. It helps if the party has a theme.
 I've searched the internet for recipes and after several different attempts, I think I found just the right one.

2 large egg whites
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
1Tbsp water
8 Tbsp flour
8 Tbsp granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
1/4 tsp salt

place in food processor and process until blended
Heat oven to 375˚ 
 Put parchment paper on a cookie sheet then place 3 tsp of batter on the paper. (I make 2 at a time) Spread the batter into a 5" round using a circular motion with the back of the teaspoon. Place the cookies in the oven.
Remove the cookies after 5 minutes or when the edges are slightly brown. Take them off the cookie sheet with a thin spatula or icing knife.
Place the fortune in the center of cookie.
Fold it in half and then fold it over the edge of a glass. (it really helps to wear cotton gloves to protect your fingers from the heat)
Put the folded cookies in a muffin tin to set up. Each recipe makes 8 large cookies. When you are finished, lower the oven temperature to 250˚ and put your tin into the oven for 15 minutes to crisp them. When cool, place them in a plastic bag.
Serve them with this sorbet for a refreshing light end to your meal.

I love this recipe- I have a much more complicated one that I printed years ago and have never made- this seems more do-able. Can't wait to try it- pinning now!
Come by for a visit sometime!

Homemade fortune cookies are the best! I started making them when I moved to PG six years ago for the Feast of Lanterns and my kids and I love doing this together.

Thank you for sharing this. I was looking for ideas for a charitable fundraiser. We decided to make some paper and fabric fortune cookies. Now we can add the real thing to our menu.
