Chinese Supper @ Claverach Farm


We took advantage of our mild winter here in the Midwest by throwing a grand Chinese dinner at Claverach Farm & Vineyard to celebrate the year of the dragon. Here's the menu and a copy of my fortune cookie recipe:

Homemade Fortune Cookies

Recipe Card for Item: Fortune Cookies

Quantity Produced: 15-20 Cookies

Egg Whites 4 Large
Vanilla Extract 1 Teaspoon
Almond Extract 1 Teaspoon
Vegetable Oil 6 Tablespoons
Flour, All-Purpose 1 Cup
Cornstarch 3 Teaspoons
Salt, Kosher ½ Teaspoon
Sugar 1 Cup
Water 2 Tablespoons

Preparation Procedure- Preheat oven to 300˚
Write out fortunes on 3 ½ “ X ½ “ pieces of paper, set aside.
In a medium bowl, lightly beat the egg white, vanilla extract, almond extract and vegetable oil until frothy, but not stiff. Sift the flour, cornstarch, salt and sugar into a separate bowl. Stir the water into the flour mixture. 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. 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.
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, about 14 - 15 minutes. 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.
