Kai-lan's Fortune Cookies
Mckayla and I made these cookies that we saw on NickJr.com Makes up to 24 of these cookies.
2 Eggs Whites
3 Tbsp. Melted Butter
1/2 Cup Flour
1 Tsp. Corn Starch
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/4 Tsp. Almond Extract
Pinch of Salt
3 Tbsp. Water
1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Spray several cookie sheets with vegetable cooking spray
2. Whisk the egg whites in a medium bowl. Add the remaining ingredients, whisking until smooth. Spoon a generous tablespoon of the mixture on a prepared cookie sheet. Spread the batter into a 3 1/2-inch circle. Place three circles on the sheet pan at a time about 2 inches apart.
3. Bake the cookies until golden brown, about 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer the cookie sheet to a wire rack. Working with one cookie at a time, fold it in half, bottom facing each other. Pull the ends downward over the rim of a glass to make the shape. Hold cookie in place for several seconds to keep the shape. Repeat with the other cookies. If they become too firm, place in the oven to reheat slightly. Repeat with the remaining batter.
4. Use Kai-lan's Fortune Slips printable to write some fortunes together with your child. Then, slip a fortune in each cookie. To get Kai-lan's Fortune Slips click here.
