fortune cookies in baking tray

 3 tbsp Vegetable Oil
 2 Egg Whites
 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
 75 g Caster Sugar
 75 g Plain Flour
 1 tbsp Cornflour
 Sesame Seeds (optional)
1

Preheat your oven to 180°C and line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper. Write or print out 12 fortune messages on small, thin strips of paper.

2

In the Kenwood Chef mixing bowl, attach the balloon whisk and add the oil, egg whites and vanilla extract, mixing on a medium speed until fully combined and frothy.

3

In a separate bowl, sieve the flour and cornflour, and add the caster sugar.

4

Replace the whisk with the K-beater and add the dry ingredients to your mixing bowl. Mix on a medium speed until fully combined.

5

With a metal spoon, spread one tablespoon of mixture onto your baking sheet until you have a 10cm circle.

6

Optional, sprinkle the sesame seeds around the edge of the circle. If you prefer to keep the cookies plain, skip this step.

7

Repeat this process until you have 4 separate circles on your baking sheet. You will need to cook these in batches.

8

Bake in the oven for 5 minutes until just turning golden round the edge.

9

Remove from the oven and quickly peel the cookies from the lined tray. Place a fortune strip in the centre, fold the cookie in half and then curl the edges round to resemble the fortune cookie shape, pinching to seal the ends. Put these in a cupcake or muffin tray to set.

10

Repeat the process with the rest of your mixture and allow the cookies to set.
