Holiday Fortune Cookies

Holiday Fortune Cookies

Wear gloves while shaping these fortune cookies fresh from the oven. They cool and crisp quickly, so bake and shape them two at a time. Bake more at one time if you have helpers. To make paper fortunes, type them, triple spaced, on a computer. Cut them out, fold in half, and place in middle of cookies before folding.

  • Yield: about 2 dozen
  • Cook time: 36 Minutes
  • Prep time: 5 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 (2-oz.) vanilla candy coating squares
  • Red decorator sugar
  • Purple decorator sugar

Preparation

Whisk together first 6 ingredients in a medium bowl. Add oil and egg whites, whisking until smooth. Whisk in water and vanilla extract.

Drop a rounded teaspoonful of batter onto a well-greased baking sheet. Using back of a spoon, spread batter into a 3" circle. Repeat procedure with another rounded teaspoonful of batter. Bake at 300° for 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown.

Working quickly, immediately remove each cookie from pan with a spatula, and flip over into gloved hand; place prepared fortune in center of each cookie and fold each cookie in half. Grasp end of each cookie, and place over the edge of a bowl, drawing the edges down to form a crease. Place cookies, ends down, in muffin pans to maintain shape; let cookies cool completely. Repeat procedure with remaining batter, baking 2 cookies at a time.

To decorate, microwave vanilla coating in a small bowl at MEDIUM (50% power) 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute. Dip outer edge of each cookie in vanilla coating, and then into red or purple sugar; set aside to let coating harden.
