IMG_6083… and so i was left with one egg white (again)… and so i flipped through my “one egg white” recipes folder…. and so… the fortune cookies seemed the most appropriate for the chinese new year ♫꒰・‿・๑꒱

Recipe (combination of various sources)

Ingredients (makes twelve 3-inch fortune cookies)

IMG_60821 egg white
1/4 cup cake flour (all purpose flour is fine)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp almond extract
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp melted butter


IMG_6086– mix all ingredients together in blender until mixture is smooth. then place mixture in the fridge for one hour
– meantime, prepare “words of fortune” on strips of paper, and ensure you have a mug and muffin pan nearby
– preheat oven to 200 degrees C
– remove mixture from fridge and lightly grease the back of a baking sheet (or a baking sheet with parchment paper ~ i prefer this method)

Personal notes:

IMG_6079– i preferred to make mini cookies and used half teaspoon mixture for each cookie
– each cookie was baked for 2 mins
– do note that the cookie hardens up easily so it is crucial you work very quickly to fold and shape them. i started off making one cookie at a time and then moved on to bake 2 cookies at a go when i got the hang of it ٩(๑ơలơ)۶♡
