KBB27 # Fortune Cookies



Happy new year 2012 to all my friends....and Happy Chinese new year to all who celebrate this..

yuukk ke dapur lagi setelah libur natal..tahun baru berlalu..
kali ini temanya adalah.."kue keberuntungan".. yup betuuull...kita akan membuat the famous Fortune cookies.


Fortune Cookie atau Kue Keberuntungan adalah sebuah kue yang tipis dan renyah, yang berisi sepotong kertas dengan kata-kata yang berisi petuah atau ramalan..(kalo isinya nomer bisa jadi no togel..hahahaha) Meskipun biasanya disebut sebagai kue keberuntungan Tionghoa, kue ini sesungguhnya diciptakan pertama kali di California, Amerika Serikat, dan bukan di Tiongkok.

are you ready..yuk mareeee siapkan jari2 buat "dipanaskan"

Fortune Cookies..

Ingredients:

2 large egg whites
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
8 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons granulated sugar
3 teaspoons water
Preparation:

1. Write fortunes on pieces of paper that are 3 1/2 inches long and 1/2 inch wide. Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease 2 9-X-13 inch baking sheets.

2. In a medium bowl, lightly beat the egg white, vanilla extract, almond extract and vegetable oil until frothy, but not stiff.

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, but should drop easily off a wooden spoon.
Note: if you want to dye the fortune cookies, add the food coloring at this point, stirring it into the batter. For example, I used 1/2 teaspoon green food coloring to make green fortune cookies.
5. Place level tablespoons of batter onto the cookie sheet, spacing them at least 3 inches apart. Gently tilt the baking sheet back and forth and from side to side so that each tablespoon of batter forms into a circle 4 inches in diameter.
6. Bake until the outer 1/2-inch of each cookie turns golden brown and they are easy to remove from the baking sheet with a spatula (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

Tips : sediakan baskom isi air es..sebelum melipat celupkan jari2 nya di dalam air es..bisa ngurangin panas pas pada saat melipat..
