• 2 large egg whites
• 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
• 1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract
• 3 tablespoons vegetable oil (растительного масла)
• 8 tablespoons flour
• 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch (кукурузный крахмал)
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 8 tablespoons granulated sugar
• 3 teaspoons water
This fortune cookie recipe makes about 10 cookies.
1. Preheat oven to 150ºС. Grease (смазать) baking sheets with butter.
2. In a medium bowl, lightly beat the egg white, vanilla extract, almond extract and vegetable oil until light frothy (легкая пенка).
3. Sift the flour, cornstarch, salt and sugar into a separate bowl. Stir the water into the flour mixture.
4. Add the flour into the egg white mixture and stir until you have a smooth batter. The batter should not be runny (жидкое), but should drop easily off (легко стекать) a wooden spoon.
5. Scoop batter onto the cookie sheet, spacing them at least 3 inches apart. Form circles 8-10 sm. in diameter with the help of the spoon.
6. Bake until each cookie turns golden brown and they are easy to remove from the baking sheet with a spatula (лопаткой) (14 - 15 minutes).
7. Working quickly, remove the cookie with a spatula and flip it over in your hand. Place a fortune in the middle of a cookie. To form the fortune cookie shape, fold the cookie in half, then gently pull the edges downward over the rim of a glass, wooden spoon or the edge of a muffin tin. Place the finished cookie in the cup of the muffin tin so that it keeps its shape. Continue with the rest of the cookies.
