KBB #27 Fortune Cookie

Gong Xi! Unik banget deh tantangan kali ini membuat fortune cookie. Yang paling aku ingat dari fortune cookie ini adalah kata-kata yang tersembunyi di dalamnya. Pernah sangking excitednya, dapet 5 fortune cookies, semua dibukain cuman pengen ngliat kertasnya, eh cookies nya ngk dimakan.

Tapi nggak nyangka juga sih tantangan kali ini malah membuat fortune cookies. Sebelum posting kesini, aku sempat beberapa kali coba, dibilang gagal total nggak, dibilang sukses banget juga nggak. Jadi percobaan ku hanya buat pemanasan saja :p

Okey, berikut recap aku dalam tantangan KBB #27

Fortune Cookie

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes


2 large egg whites

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

8 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch

1/4 teaspoon salt

8 tablespoons granulated sugar

3 teaspoons water


1. Write fortunes on pieces of paper that are 3 1/2 inches long and 1/2 inch wide. Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease 2 9-X-13 inch baking sheets.

2. In a medium bowl, lightly beat the egg white, vanilla extract, almond extract and vegetable oil until frothy, but not stiff.

3. Sift the flour, cornstarch, salt and sugar into a separate bowl. Stir the water into the flour mixture.

4. Add the flour into the egg white mixture and stir until you have a smooth batter. The batter should not be runny, but should drop easily off a wooden spoon.

Note: if you want to dye the fortune cookies, add the food coloring at this point, stirring it into the batter. For example, I used 1/2 teaspoon green food coloring to make green fortune cookies.

5. Place level tablespoons of batter onto the cookie sheet, spacing them at least 3 inches apart. Gently tilt the baking sheet back and forth and from side to side so that each tablespoon of batter forms into a circle 4 inches in diameter.

6. Bake until the outer 1/2-inch of each cookie turns golden brown and they are easy to remove from the baking sheet with a spatula (14 - 15 minutes).

7. Working quickly, remove the cookie with a spatula and flip it over in your hand. Place a fortune in the middle of a cookie. To form the fortune cookie shape, fold the cookie in half, then gently pull the edges downward over the rim of a glass, wooden spoon or the edge of a muffin tin. Place the finished cookie in the cup of the muffin tin so that it keeps its shape. Continue with the rest of the cookies

Hhmm.. Selamat menikmati :)
