Learn How To Make Fortune Cookies

Making homemade fortune cookies is a snap, and your loved ones will get a kick out of their personalized predictions! You will need:

Paper

Scissors

Nontoxic Pen

Cookie Sheet

Butter or nonstick Cooking Spray

2 large egg whites

½ cup of all-purpose flour

½ cup of sugar

1 tsp almond extract

Wax paper

Measuring cup

Muffin tins

Step 1: Cut paper into 16 2 x ½ inch strips, and write a fortune on each with a non-toxic pen.

Step 2: Preheat oven to 375°, and grease a baking sheet with butter or non-stick cooking spray.

Step 3: Whisk egg whites into a medium-sized bowl, until they’re just foamy.

Step 4: Add the flour, sugar, and almond extract to the egg whites and beat until the mixture is smooth.

Step 5: Drop 4 separate tablespoons of batter onto the cooking sheet, spaced far apart. You have enough batter for about 16 cookies, but don’t attempt to make more than 4 cookies per sheet. They need room to spread.

Step 6: Use a butter knife or the back of a spoon to spread the dropped batter into circles about 2 inches in diameter.

Step 7: Bake the cookies until the edges just begin to turn brown, about 6 minutes. The centers should remain pale.

Step 8: As soon as you take the cookies out of the oven, lift them off the cookie sheet with a spatula and place them on a piece of wax paper.

Step 9: Place a fortune in the center of a cookie, and fold the cookie in half, to form a semi-circle. Pick up the cookie and place the straight edge across the rim of the measuring cup. Fold the pointed edges down, one on the inside and one on the outside of the cup. Put the cookie in a muffin tin so it retains its shape as it cools. Work as quickly as you can! Once these cookies cool, they’ll be impossible to bend.

Step 10: Enjoy the looks on your loved ones’ faces when they read fortunes written just for them!
