Fortune Cookies I

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2010
This recipe is one of the best I have found yet. For my first attempt I followed the recipe exactly, but in retrospect I wish I would have listened to some of the other reviewers about cutting down the amount of sugar. Here were some technique modifications I made that were extremely helpful: Use a silicon baking mat (Silpat, etc) on a baking sheet that has been flipped upside down. It will save you from the nightmare of having to grease your pans! I started out using a spatula to remove the cookies from the mat, but kept ruining the edges. After awhile I found that I could just peel them off using my hands without sustaining any burns (the cookies were actually really easy to handle). I just flipped the cookie upside down onto a thin tea towel in my hand, and continued with the folding. I only had one mat, so I would cool it off by shaking it in the air for a few seconds (after brushing off crumbs) and then placing onto a new pan (cool pans work best, or the cookies will start to cook as you spread the batter). Final note: add a little bit of orange food coloring to the batter. They add food coloring into the mass produced ones to give them that nice color, and I found that it gave me a more authentic look (just a little, don't over do it!)

This recipe was delicious and very easy to throw together. I served this with some shredded Parmesan on the top, and it was AMAZING!
