- Print the fortunes, cut them and fold them in two. Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease (or use a silpat) two cookie sheets.
- In a medium bowl, lightly beat the egg whites, vanilla extract, almond extract and vegetable oil until frothy, but not stiff.
- Sift the flour, cornstarch, salt and sugar into the egg mix. Add the water. Beat until you have a smooth batter. The batter should not be runny, but should drop easily off a wooden spoon.
- Separate the batter in two. Dye one by adding two drop of red food coloring or enough to obtain the desired color.
- The best is to do 2 cookies at a time because they harden very fast! Place level tablespoons of batter onto the cookie sheet, spacing them at least 3 inches apart. Gently tilt the baking sheet back and forth and from side to side so that each tablespoon of batter forms into a circle 4 inches in diameter. If you want to decorate the cookies as I did, now is the time.
- To decorate: it’s mostly the same thing as decorating cookies with royal icing. For all sorts of techniques visit Karen’s cookies.
- Bake until the outer 1/2-inch of each cookie turns golden brown and they are easy to remove from the baking sheet with a spatula (14 – 15 minutes).
- For this part, look at the Youtube tutorial, it’s much easier to see how it’s done! Also, you should totally wear gloves so that you don’t burn your fingers. Working quickly, remove the cookie with a spatula and flip it over on your work surface. Place a fortune in the middle of a cookie. To form the fortune cookie shape, fold the cookie in half, then gently pull the edges downward over the rim of a glass, wooden spoon or the edge of a muffin tin. Place the finished cookie in the cup of the muffin tin so that it keeps its shape. Continue with the rest of the cookies.
