Hope and Fortune...cookies

I am happy and proud to share to you my very first attempt to make fortune cookies. It was indeed tricky to shape this oriental tuile cookie but is surely a delightful treat for a simple dinner at home. I arranged a HOT-Pot Party for the family and I thought that it can never be called a real chinese dinner if could not make fortune cookies which is made of all purpose flour, eggwhite, sugar and vanilla flavouring. A fortune cookie should have a simple message inside and so I placed it myself immediately after it has been baked working on the shape near the oven by bending the half folded tuile cookie on a baking pan rim. I enjoyed doing it... you can also try making strawberry fortune cookies by adding food color and adding strawberry extract. Hope is what I got after reading my message...secret!
