Homemade Fancy Fortune Cookies

Posted Apr 18 2011 1:47am

Fortune cookies are a lot of fun to make . And homemade always tastes better than store bought! Try this recipe.

                                 


 

 

Ingredients

100gramsflour, all-purpose
1/4teaspoonsaltto taste
75gramsbutterchilled
1/2wholeegg yolkbeaten
1/2wholeeggbeaten (for egg wash)

Directions

Sift the flour. Place the flour and salt in a large bowl. Mix. Rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Next add approximately 1/2 of the egg yolk . Mix well using your hands. Try to work quickly.

Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for 10 -15 minutes.

Now take the chilled dough and roll out into a 12 inch square that is about 1/8 inch thick, using a rolling pin. Use a cookie cutter and cut out cookies using your favorite cookie cutter shape (the recipe should make about 25, depending on how big your cutter is).

Make flower stem: Next cut the remaining dough into strips – 1/8 inch width and 6 inch long. Fold strip in half and twist strip together. I’ve done this in the photo above.

Lightly butter a baking tray and then line with oiled or baking sprayed parchment paper. Place the flower stems onto the baking tray.

Next brush the egg wash on top of the stem.Take a flower cookie and place on the top of the stem. Now make one hole on the top of flower using a toothpick.

Brush the egg on top of the flowers and stems.

Bake about 15 minutes at 200 c degrees or until the crust is golden brown.

Remove from oven and let cool.

Take a small strip of paper and write your fortune and connect it to the cookie with a piece of string threaded through the hole that you made in the flower. After that decorate.

Enjoy.
