Homemade Fortune Cookies Recipe

Our home is often filled with family and friends, so I'm always cooking up something. I created this recipe when I was looking for a treat to surprise my husband. —Susan Bettinger, Battle Creek, Michigan
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 45 min. Bake: 5 min. YIELD:10 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour

Directions

  • 1. Write fortunes on small strips of paper (3-1/2 in. x 1/4 in.); set aside. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Draw two 3-1/2-in. circles on paper; set aside.
  • 2. In a small bowl, beat the butter, sugar, egg white and vanilla. Add flour; mix well. Spread 1 tablespoon batter over each circle. Bake at 400° for 4-5 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • 3. Slide parchment paper onto a work surface. Cover one cookie with a kitchen towel. Place a fortune in the center of the other cookie; loosen cookie from parchment paper with a thin spatula. Fold cookie in half over fortune strip so the edges meet; hold edges together for 3 seconds.
  • 4. Place center of cookie over the rim of a glass; gently press ends down to bend cookie in middle. Cool for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack. Repeat with second cookie. If cookies become too cool to fold, return to oven to soften for 1 minute. Repeat with remaining batter and fortunes. Yield: 10 cookies.
