About this recipe: Write your own fortunes and place them in cookies. Great idea for parties or Chinese New Year!
Something else. These tasted wonderful! It took a couple of "test batches" before I got the hang of it. 200 degrees is way to hot for my oven! I baked them for about 10 minutes at 160 degrees, and they turned out beautifully. I used my fingers to spread the batter to ensure (almost) perfect circles. Make sure the circles are THIN before you put them in the oven or they won't turn crunchy! Works great with Wholemeal flour too! =) - 21 Jul 2008
This recipie is terrible. My first batch came out like overly sweetened pancakes. I recommend reducing the sugar to 2 tablespoons, whipping the egg whites just until slightly foamy but not solid at all, and spreading the batter so thin with the back of a spoon that you can see the tray through it. This will help you create authentic fortune cookies. - 21 Jul 2008
I've given this a challenging rating purely because it really is quite hard to get the best thickness, at least I found it was. Too thick and they will end up chewy. Eventually though I found the key to it turning out just right was that you should be able to see the baking tray through the batter. The recipe itself though is superb! - 16 Mar 2012
