nope its not hard at all!

okie well here it is

this recipe makes 18 cookies

3 egg whites
1/2 cup of confectioners sugar
3 tablespoons sweet butter, melted
1/2 cup all-purpose flour

preheat oven to 400 degrees/ gas 6. line two baking sheets with baking parchment and grease. Cut a piece of paper into 18 small strips, measuring 2 1/2 x 3/4 inches. write a message on each one.

lightly whisk the egg whites and confectioners' sugar until the whites are broken up. Add the melted butter and flour and beat until smooth.

using a 2-teaspoon measure , spoon a little of the paste onto one baking sheet and spread to a 3 inch round shape with the back of a spoon. add two more spoonfuls of mixture to the baking sheet and shape in the same way.

bake for 6 minutes, until the cookies are golden. Meanwhile prepare three more cookies on the secondbaking sheet .

remove the first batch of cookies from the oven and replace with the second batch.

working quickly, peel a hot cookie from the paper and fold it in half, tucking the message inside the fold. rest the cookie over the rim of a glass or bowl and, very gently, fold again(it probably wont fold over completely) fold the remaining two cookies in the same way.

continue to bake and shape the remaining cookies inthe same way until all the batter and messages have been used.

tip: spread the batter as thinly as possible on the pape. This will give a really crisp, light result.
and donot be tempted to bake more than three cookies at once, or else they'll harden before you can shape them.

let me know how they came out and enjoy Wink

Sweet Cream butter.

Probably a bit different than salted, but maybe not. Go to Walmart. They have everything.

Well, I did it.  (actually, my husband and I did it)  We made fortune cookies.  They came out pretty good.  The tast is right, we just couldn't get them to stay folded nice and neat.  Oh well.  It was a good adventure anyway.

Here are some pics:

The cookies are inside these homemade boxes...they are gifts for my husband's co-workers

My clever husband wrote the fortunes (by a computer geek, for geeks)

I also wanted to make a note about the Butter used.  Sweet Cream Butter is also know as "Unsalted Butter". I got mine at the local grocery.

True story... when I was just a wee one I found a recipe book of my mother's that had a fortune cookie recipe in it. So my friend comes over and we both want to cook something... so out comes the fortune cookie recipe... we made the dough and heated it up properly, but then came the "folding" part, right? And of course you've got to fold them while they're still hot... so we pick 'em up off the baking sheet and try folding them but they were too hot, so they burned our fingers. So we decided to let them cool first and then try folding them. But of course, we waited too long letting them cool so they hardened and were litterally cemented to the baking sheet. Of course they're ruined now, and too add to all of it I'm mortified my mother is gonna come down and see that we've ruined her baking pan, so we try several methods of trying to get these hardened cookies off the pan, and eventually resort to scraping them off not with spatulas or knives, but intead with scissors. It was, needless to say, an adventure. Woodchick, yours turned out well, but too this day I think i'm better off not trying to make 'em. Thought I would share that. Smiley

Not a bad idea, the fortune cookies Smiley Maybe I'll try them some day, when I get tired of having to snitch them from the Panda.

When you fold them, Hold the top and then turn gently down the ends of the cookie while resting the middle against the edge of a glass.  Then, if you will stick them into a muffin tin after folding, they will cool off and hold their fortune cookie shapes.  They are really cute to make them bigger than normal and then package them in a Chinese take out container.
