‘End of the World’ Party Fortune Cookies

IMG_4067

It’s not the end of the world unless there has been some sort of prophecy. But–what about a personal prophecy? You must have your fortune read! SO I made fortune cookies for our End of the World house party so our guests can know their fortune for the end of days.

I used Microsoft Word to create the fortunes, but any editor that can create tables should work I suspect. I used a 2 column 7 row table, I fixed the height of the rows at .5 inches. I put in a page break (ctrl+enter) and did the same on a second page. I printed these in color, duplex/double-sided (note: for the table on the second page I removed the borders before printing).

Make sure you have your fortunes cut out before you begin cooking!

On the front I put 14 unique fortunes and lucky numbers like the following:

You are going to win the lottery!
Just kidding, the world is ending.
Lucky Numbers 9, 58,  12, 21, 12

On the back I put:

               LEARN CHINESE – Help me!
               救(jiù) 救(jiù) 我(wǒ)!

Here is the final result:


Tools:

A spatula, a silpat or parchment paper, a baking sheet, bowl, cupcake tray, and a hand mixer.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  • 2 egg whites
  • 6 tbsp white sugar

In bowl blend together egg whites and sugar until foamy. Then blend in each of the following:

  • 1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon water

It will be a sticky batter, not quite liquidy but no where near solid like a thick pancake batter. Spread into little circles just a bit larger than your fortunes and bake for 5 minutes until the edges darken (Tip: I wouldn’t do more than 3 at a time, it’s can be difficult to fold more than this before it cools).

(This next step is a little hot on the fingers) Quickly place a cut-out fortune onto the center of each hot fortune cookie and fold in half just touching the edges together, they should stick a little while hot. Poke the middle of the back with you finger to fold the cookie backwards and set in the cupcake tray to maintain shape while cooling.

They cool completely in about 10 minutes. Store, and then share your perfect little fortune cookies:
