New Year's Eve Resolution (aka Fortune) Cookies
Serves: 24
Colorful New Year's Eve Resolution (Fortune) Cookies
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1 cup fine granulated sugar
  • 1 cup flour, sifted
  • pinch salt
  • 2 tsp corn starch
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 3 Tb heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 Tb butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place your egg whites in a bowl and whisk them until frothy and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, flour, salt, corn starch, and cinnamon. Then form a well in the middle, add the heavy cream, vanilla extract, and butter and mix the wet ingredients with a spatula until all of the dry ingredients from the sides of the bowl have combined.
  4. Next, add half the egg whites and stir until smooth, then combine the other half of egg whites and stir until combined.
  5. If you wish to make different colored cookies, divide the batter into different bowls, add your desired food coloring and mix.
  6. Use a spoon to add 6 half-dollar dollops of batter to your non-stick baking mat (Silpat), setting them each about 3-4 inches apart. Then use the back of the spoon to spread out the batter into a circular shape, making it as thin as possible without creating any holes.
  7. Bake the cookies for 6-8 minutes until the edges slightly brown.
  8. Then use an off-set spatula to quickly flip the cookies, add your printed resolutions to the middle, and fold each cookie in half lengthwise. Then immediately pick up the cookie and fold it in half again - the easiest way to do this is by molding it over the edge of a coffee mug. Place the folded cookie in a cupcake baking tin to hold the shape as the cookie hardens. You must do this step quickly before the cookie cools and hardens.
  9. Decorate the cookies by dipping into melted white chocolate and covering with sprinkles.
  10. Store in an airtight container or cookies will soften and get chewy.
