Gallery: DIY: How to Make Homemade Valentine’s Day Fortune Cookies for ...

 

STEP 5:

Using a spoon, place small dollops of the batter onto your cookie sheet and spread them into 3" or 4" circles. The thinner and more round you make the circles, the better your cookies will turn out. Make sure your cookies don't touch one another. You can probably do about 3 cookies per batch but they cook really fast.

STEP 6:

When your oven hits 400 degrees place your first batch in the oven and bake for about 6 minutes, watching them through your oven window to make sure they don't burn.

HOME MADE FORTUNE COOKIE INGREDIENTS:

- 1/4 cup of unbleached all-purpose flour - 1/4 cup of regular sugar - 1 egg white (you can substitute in 1 Tbsp. plain agar powder dissolved in 1 Tbsp. water, whipped, chilled, and whipped again if you want to make your cookies vegan) - 3 Tbsp. of water - 1/8 teaspoon of vanilla extract - A pinch of salt

Helpful tips: These cookies admittedly take a bit of practice to get perfect, but there are a few tricks to getting them to come out as nicely as possible:

- The less cookies you do on one sheet, the easier it is. - If you find that your cookies are too mushy in consistency, add a bit more water. That may sound counter-intuitive, but the water makes the batter easier to spread thin which helps dry the cookies out properly. - Don’t use too much batter for each cookie. A little more than a teaspoon of batter should do the trick.
