fortune cookies

New Year's celebration will be here before you know it. I thought these would be the perfect snack or favor. You can put any sort message inside that will have your guests laughing all night long - a great icebreaker! And while you're at it, dip them in chocolate and sprinkles too!

Fortune sayings, all cut up and ready to go
3 egg whites
½ cup confectioner's sugar (icing sugar) - sifted
1.5 oz (45g) sweet (unsalted) butter - melted
½ cup all-purpose (plain) flour

Pre-heat Oven to moderate 355o F (180oC).

Draw three 3.5 inch (8 cm) circles on a sheet of baking paper.

Line oven tray with the baking paper.

Place egg whites in a medium bowl and beat until just frothy.

Add the icing sugar and butter. Stir until smooth.

Next add the flour and continue to stir until smooth.

Allow to stand for 15 minutes.

Then using a flat-bladed knife/spatula (like using for chocolate), spread 1½ level teaspoons of mixture in each circle.

Bake for 5 minutes or until slightly colored around edges.

Take from oven and work quickly.

Remove one cookie at a time from the tray by sliding the flat-bladed knife/spatula under gently.

Place the written fortune on top and fold in half. And then in half again over a blunt-edged object - like a mixing bowl.

Allow to cool and then transfer to a wire rack to cool further.
