How to make it

  • Write fortunes on strips of paper and fold in half; set aside. You can also use your computer and trim them down to size.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Beat egg whites until frothy. Beat in sugar and salt. Stir in butter, flour, and almond extract.
  • Making no more than six cookies at a time, drop batter by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet about 3 inches apart. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown.
  • Working quickly, while cookies are still warm and pliable, hold each cookie in palm and place a fortune on one half of cookie. Fold cookie in half over fortune. Drape the center of the folded cookie over the handle of a wooden spoon. Fold the edges of the cookie around spoon until sides touch; slide off spoon. Repeat with remaining cookies.
  • If cookies become brittle before they're shaped, return the pan to the oven for 1 minute to soften. Store in airtight container.

    Cool! I have never made my own. Today we had Chinese and when the waiter brought the fortune cookies I asked if he knew that they were not invented in China but California and not by a Chinese person but a Japanese cook! He did! Good for him!
