Make fortune cookies at home! These are a beautiful pink with a subtle pomegranate flavor!
Author: Amy Kritzer
Recipe type: Dessert
3 egg whites
¾ cup granulated sugar
½ cup butter, melted and cooled
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons pomegranate juice
Red food coloring (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. While it is preheating, fill out fortunes on small pieces of paper. Then line cookie sheets with parchment paper or a Silpat.
In a large mixing bowl, whip together egg whites and sugar with an electric beater on high until frothy, about 2 minutes. Then add in melted butter and vanilla and mix until combined. Add in flour and mix well. Then add in pomegranate juice 1 tablespoon at a time until your batter is thick and fluid. Add food coloring if desired.
Spoon a tablespoon of the batter into 2 circles on the baking sheet. Use the back of a spoon to spread the batter out very thin. Don't do more that 2 at a time as they harden quickly once you take them out of the oven and can be tricky to mold.
Bake for 5-7 minutes until the edges begin to brown. Quickly remove the cookies from the baking sheet one at a time and place a fortune in the center. Fold the cookie in half and then fold the ends together to form the fortune cookie. Cool in a muffin tin to hold shape. Repeat with the remaining batter.
