Originating from California and emerging in the 20th century, the Fortune Cookie has become a symbol of wisdom and dreams for many people. Even today, Fortune Cookies are a fascinating addition to the celebration of the Chinese New Year!
A Fortune Cookie is a crispy, sweet cookie typically made from flour, sugar, and vanilla. Usually, the cookie is folded into a shape resembling a hollow shell before being baked. Inside the folded cookie, a small piece of paper is placed, containing a "fortune" or a piece of advice, or a kind message.
Tulip Chocolate has prepared the Fortune Cookies that you can try at home. Read the ingredients and instructions down below:
50 grams Egg Whites
1 gram Vanilla Extract
80 grams Unsalted Butter
55 grams Powdered Sugar
60 grams Medium-Protein Flour
10 grams Almond Flour
2 grams Cornstarch (Maizena)
1 gram Salt
2 grams Orange Zest
46 grams Water
Whisk egg whites and vanilla extract until frothy using a balloon whisk in a bowl.
Add all dry ingredients
Pour in melted unsalted butter.
Add grated orange zest and whisk evenly using a balloon whisk.
Gradually add water and mix well.
Take an 8 cm ring cutter and lightly imprint on the dough to create size guidelines on a silpat.
Pour it onto the prepared silpat, and smooth the dough out using a spoon or a small ladle to the desired size, ensuring an even dough.
Bake at 190°C for 4-5 minutes.
Scrape the dough using a scraper, place the prepared paper, and fold the dough in half, shaping it using the edge of the cup, and place it into a round silicone mold to maintain the shape
Tips: Bake a maximum of 2 cookies at a time to have enough time to shape the dough before it hardens. If the center of the dough is not too crisp after shaping, it can be baked again inside the silicone mold for 1-2 minutes.
Tulip Hazel Delight
Melt Tulip Hazel Delight to around 35°C.
Dip the finished fortune cookies as desired.
Decorate with edible pearls and place them in a jar to maintain the crispiness of the cookies.
