Valentine’s Day Fortune Cookies!

Image

These fortune cookies are easy to make. They make great gifts to give to your special someone on Valentine’s Day or just to eat on a regular Thursday like me.. uh what?

I got the idea from this blog:http://sugarforthebrain.com/2013/01/14/valentines-fortune-cookies/they made them a lot better than I did.

Ingredients:
2 large egg whites
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon almond extract
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
½ cup flour
1 ½ teaspoon cornstarch
Dash salt
½ cup sugar
3 teaspoons water
Red or pink food coloring
Melted chocolate
Sprinkles

Makes about 10-12 cookies

In a bowl, add egg whites, vanilla extract, almond extract and oil. Beat the mixture until it’s frothy. Then sift in the flour, cornstarch, salt, sugar and water. Mix until smooth.
Divide the batter in half and add couple drops of red food coloring into one mixture.
On a greased cookie sheet, add 1-2 tablespoons of batter and make a circle. It should be roughly 4 inches in diameter. This is where you can decorate it how ever you want it. Then place the cookies in a 300 F degree oven. Depending on your oven, it should take 10-13 minutes. They should be lightly golden brown on the edges. Make sure to watch them carefully so it doesn’t burn. When you take it out of the oven you need to work quickly! That is why you should do two cookies at a time. You can see in the video how I messed up. So with a spatula, flip the cookie and put your message in the middle. Fold the cookie in half and use a cup to bend it down the middle. Then place it in a cupcake tin so it holds its shape. If your designs didn’t turn out like you wanted them to you can dip the fortune cookies into melted chocolate and add sprinkles! Place them in the fridge so that the chocolate cools and hardens. Then enjoy!
