Chocolate Fortune Cookies

I had two left over egg whites in my fridge so I decided to make some tuiles. “Tuile” is the French word for “tile”. The curved shape is formed by draping the freshly baked cookies over a rolling pin or glass jars while they are still hot and soft. Once cooled, they become crispy. I made my own tuile stencil by drawing circles on my daughter’s unused foam craft sheet and cutting them. I got bored very quickly so I decided to turn my tuiles into fortune cookies. My kids were all very excited to find out what was hidden inside the cookies!

雪櫃有兩隻蛋白,剛好可做法式瓦片。法文“Tuile”是瓦片的意思,它彎彎的形狀是由將剛烤好熱辣辣軟綿綿的曲奇放在擀麵桿或玻璃杯上定形做成的,放涼後便是一片片瓦片形狀脆卜卜的薄片曲奇。EC的瓦片圓模是自製的,只是在女兒的軟膠勞作材料上畫上圓形然後逐一剪出,今次烘了幾塊很快便悶了,於是便把它們做成幸運曲奇。EC的孩子未見過幸運曲奇,對入面藏有小字條的小餅很感興趣呢!

Ingredients

60 g melted butter
45 g icing sugar
½ tsp vanilla extract
2 (about 65 g) large egg whites
40 g all purpose flour
10 g Dutch-processed cocoa powder

材料

溶牛油 60 克
糖粉 45 克
純雲呢拿香油 1/2 茶匙
大蛋蛋白 2隻 (約65 克)
中筋麵粉 40 克
鹼化(Dutch-processed)可可粉 10 克

Directions 做法

Write fortunes on tiny pieces of paper. Paper should be no longer than the diameter of the stencil.
在小紙條上寫上幸運字句,紙條不能比圓模直徑長。

Preheat oven to 350ºF/180ºC. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicon mat.
焗爐預熱至350ºF/180ºC,烤盤內放牛油紙或矽膠墊。

Beat egg white and icing sugar with a whisk or fork until smooth. Whisk in melted butter and vanilla extract.
蛋白和糖用蛋拂或叉子拌勻,加溶牛油和雲呢拿香油攪勻。

Combine and sift flour and cocoa powder in another mixing bowl. Add to egg white mixture in two batches and stir to combine. Do not overmix.
麵粉和可可粉混合過篩放在另一碗中,分兩次加進蛋白楜中輕輊拌勻,切勿過度攪拌。

Place stencil on the lined baking sheet and fill stencil with batter. Smooth top with an offset spatula then peel off the stencil. Start from baking two cookies at a time until you get the hang of it. I bake 4 to 6 cookies each time.
將圓模放在烤盤上,倒入少量麵糊,用刮刀抹平後取走圓模,還未熟習前每次做2個會比較容易處理,EC每次做四至六個。

Bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until golden brown around the edges (it is hard to see because of the color of the batter so do some experiments with baking time). Lift up cookies with an offset spatula one at a time and begin shaping. To shape the fortune cookie, flip cookie over in the hand, place a paper in the middle then fold cookie over. Press both sides downward over the rim of a mug. Place cookie in a mini muffin pan to cool.
放入焗爐焗約 5-7分鐘至曲奇邊緣呈金黃色(麵糊顔色太深比較難觀察,建議先試少量掌握入爐時間),之後快手用刮刀將曲奇輕輕鏟起並在手中反轉,在中央放入幸運紙條後將曲奇對摺一次,將曲奇兩邊壓往杯邊往下屈出幸運曲奇形狀,將摺好的曲奇放入迷你鬆餅烤模協助定型並放涼。
