Create Your Own Fortune

Leave a comment

If only life were this easy. Write all your dreams down. Bake those dreams into cookies, eat and enjoy as your wishes come true!

It may not be the case but creating your own fortune is actually very fun and easy. I used 1 egg white, a drop of vanilla essence, a pinch of salt, 1/4 cup of flour, 1/4 cup of white sugar. You’ll need a hot oven (200 C ish) and greased baking tray. Have your fortunes printed, cut and ready.


Mix the egg white and vanilla until foamy then sift and mix in the flour, sugar and salt. Place 1-2 teaspoons of batters on the tray and tilt the tray to get the batter round and thin. Do a few at a time or they’ll cool too fast to work with. Bake for 5 minutes or until the centre is pale. Remove the tray from the oven, lift a fortune cookie off with a spatula and pop the fortune in. At this stage I folded the cookie in half and popped them into a muffin tray hole, pulling the pointed edges down into the desired shape. The first few will be a disaster but you’ll pick up the technique quickly. Work quickly once they come out of the oven and repeat the process with the remaining batter. These are fun and tasty!
