You want to give your loved ones new year’s eve a great wisdom for the coming year on the way? Or a saying to think about? Then just bake a load of fortune cookies and take them to the party. We show you how to do it!
Make fortune cookies yourself
Of course, a little more wisdom can not be used just for New Year’s Eve. A bowl of fortune cookies full of clever sayings will definitely be great as an oracle on the next girls evening. Or as party favors at a wedding. Of course, the other way round and you can give the fortune cookies to a newlyweds or birthday child. Then filled with good wishes or advice. For the New Year’s Eve variant, I have decided for Chinese wisdom.
Once you have decided what to put in your fortune cookies, then the wise sayings print on paper, cut them out and fold them into a narrow strip. I wrote everything in font size 8 and it worked well. But remember to choose a readable font. Then you can start baking with the biscuit.
Fortune cookies recipe
After two failed options, I decided to use the recipe from Marion’s cookbook . And that worked really well! The quantities in the recipe are for 18 fortune cookies, I got 19 out.
- 40 grams of butter
- 3 egg whites
- a little bit of salt
- 60 grams of powdered sugar
- 60 grams of flour
That’s how it’s done
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and draw 3 8-inch circles on the back of your baking paper. Place the baking paper on a baking tray.
Drain the butter and put it aside. Then whisk the egg whites and mix with powdered sugar (seven!) And salt. Add flour and melted butter and mix. Then add a teaspoon of dough to the circles on the baking sheet and smooth until the whole circle is evenly filled. Then bake the dough on a middle rack for 5 to 6 minutes. Then it has to be fast. Take out fortune cookies, put pieces of paper on them, fold them into a semicircle and then press with the straight side over the edge of a glass so that the typical kink arises.
And all before the dough is cold and hard, because then he breaks. That’s why you should also bake a maximum of three fortune cookies at once, unless you have help! Take good care of your fingers, I burned a few times while folding.
Then dry the biscuits in the air until they are cured before packing them or placing them in a tin.
