Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Coat baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat.
  3. In bowl of an electric mixer, combine egg whites and sugar; beat on medium speed for about 30 seconds. Add flour and salt; beat until mixed.
  4. Add butter, heavy cream and almond extract; beat until mixed.
  5. Pour 1 tablespoon batter onto half the baking sheet. Spread with a spoon into a thin 5 inch circle; repeat on other half of sheet. Bake until edges turn golden brown, about 8 minutes.
  6. Place baking sheet on a heat-resistant surface. Working quickly, slide a spatula under one cookie. Lift and place on a dish towel. Fold cookie in half, pinching at top to form loose semicircle. Insert index fingers into ends; press indentation into center of cookie while bending ends together to form shape of a fortune cookie. This should take about 10 seconds. Once the cookie hardens, you cannot fold it. Repeat with other cookies. Write your message on long strips of sturdy art paper, and thread through cooled cookie.

Aside from the fact that these cookies were difficult to shape (no fault of the recipe), they are fantastic - they taste great and look good. A few tips: 1. Cut a round mold into the top of a plastic container, then spread the batter with a long metal spreader; this will give the cookies a smoother surface and make the shaping easier because the cookies will cook more evenly. 2. I cut down on the amount of sugar by almost half a cup - it made them better for my taste buds but didn't adversely affect the baking process. 3. Wear a pair of thin non-wool gloves (you don't want little fibres getting all over your cookies) when shaping the cookies - they are hot!

Wonderful flavor and texture to the cookies. Like any cookie in this genre, they are best made on low humidity days. When I was in pastry classes I picked up a few tips for shaped cookies. 1. Cotton gloves protect the fingers from burns 2. Place the cookie sheet on a thick towel once removed from the oven. It helps retain a bit of heat. 3. I was really slow in my forming so my teacher had me work directly from the oven. That way the resting cookies are kept hot while you work the other one. You have to be very careful not to bang appendages and only have the 1 rack in the oven to minimize the chance of burning arms, etc.
