Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Additional Time 15 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
- 2 egg whites (extra large eggs)
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- ½ cup all purpose flour
- ½ cup sugar
- pinch of sea salt
- handwritten fortune messages
- 1 cup chocolate chips (optional)
- St. Patrick's Day sprinkles, for garnish (optional)
- Write out fortunes and cut them into strips (they need to be about 3" by ¼"). Fold them in half if they are really long.
- Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a cookie sheet tray with silicone baking mats or parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the egg whites, vanilla extract, flour, pinch of sea salt and sugar. The batter will be very loose.
- Using a small spoon, scoop about 1 tsp of batter onto the lined cookie sheet. Use the back of the spoon to smooth the batter into a very thin circular layer.
- Repeat this process with additional batter to form two or three circles of batter on the cookie sheet. Bake the cookies for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies begin to brown.
- Remove the cookies from the oven and place the handwritten message in the center of the each cookie.
- After that use a flat spatula to very carefully release the cookie from the sheet tray. Fold it in a half, then pinch the edges inward to create the fortune cookie shape.
- Continue this process with the remaining cookies, which will harden within 30 seconds of being formed.
- Place each cookie into a cupcake tin laying down so it will hold it's shape while it cools. It should cool about 15 minutes.
- As an optional garnish, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave in 20-second intervals then dunk the hardened and cooled cookies into the chocolate.
- Immediately decorate the chocolate dipped cookies with St. Patrick's Day sprinkles and let harden.
You can make some cookies for your friends too. Write a little message about why they are important to you and just spread the joy.
