Fortune Cookies II

They are not Chinese in origin, but the innovation of an enterprising baker in Los Angeles in the 1920's. Be sure to have cotton gloves and a muffin pan handy. And, don't forget to have all your 'fortunes' written and ready in 1/2 x 3 inch strips.

This is the worst recipie I have ever used. Not only are the measurements confusing (7 tablespoons oil, 1/3 cup egg whites), but the batter is mush and the oil in it seperates. They are difficult to spread and once cooked, they are inedible. I made one to test and ended up throwing the whole batch away.

I don't see how they are supposed to be bendable .....they just brake when you try mold them! This recipe was very easy to make, but I would not recommend it!

To be honest, I can't understand why everyone is giving this recipe such bad reviews. For me, it worked perfectly and my family was delighted. We ejnoyed the cookies after a Thai dinner and thought they were delicious! Thank you so much! :)
