Good Luck Fortune Cookies

Submitted by Steve L.

The fortune cookie is a U.S. invention that is often thought to be from another country.


8 oz flour
2 tbsp cornstarch
4 ounces sugar
2 egg whites
4 oz vegetable oil
1 tsp water
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt


Prepare fortunes by writing messages on about 20 strips of paper.

Sift together the flour, cornstarch, sugar, and salt in a large bowl.

Stir in the oil, egg whites, water, and vanilla extract.

On a well-greased baking sheet, roll a very thin 4-inch circle of dough.

Preheat the oven to 300F and bake for 15 minutes or until golden.

Remove one cookie at a time from the oven with a wide spatula; working quickly follow these four steps:

1. Flip cookie onto cotton gloved hand.

2. Hold fortune in center of pliable cookie while folding cookie in half.

3. Grasp ends of cookie and draw gently down over edge of muffin pan to crease at center of cookie.

4. Fit cookie in muffin pan (points down) to hold shape as it cools. If cookie hardens too quickly, put it back in the oven for about 1 minute.
