The month of love is upon us and it’s inspiring me to do what I love the most.
I have been whipping up the sweetest treats to share with you all this past week I’ve got it all covered.
Valentines is pretty special but only because it’s when my husband and I shared our first date back in 2015. It took a lot of persistence from his side because I’ve never ever been into celebrating and I still remember feeling so awkward when he handed me a heart shaped box of chocolates 😅.
Anyway it all turned out good and this year we’ll be celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary.
I tried my hand at making fortune cookies because of our love of asian food, they’re super cute and the best part is being able to attach personalized fortunes inside.
Here’s how I made them.
2 large egg whites
½ teaspoon vanilla essence
½ cup all purpose flour
½ cup sugar
1 pinch salt
3 tablespoons water
1. Preheat the oven to 220˚C.
2. Add the egg whites and vanilla essence to a bowl and use a whisk to beat until frothy.
3. Sift in the flour, sugar, and salt through a sieve.
4. Using a spatula, gently incorporate into the batter.
5. Add the water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the batter is smooth and falls into ribbons.
6. Place 1 tablespoon of batter onto a baking tray lined with baking paper or baking spray and spread into a 7cm circle.
7. Repeat with another tablespoon of batter, making sure to only bake 2 circles at a time.
8. Bake for 8 minutes, until the edges become golden brown.
9. Work quickly, use a spatula to remove the cookies from the pan. Add a fortune in the middle, fold the cookies in half, then place the flat side on the lip of a cup , folding the edges down into a fortune cookie shape. Place the folded fortune cookies in a muffin tin until cooled to retain their shape.
Repeat with the remaining batter.
