Print out your fortunes and cut them so they are about 2 inches across and 3/4 of an inch in height. Have them ready to go before you start baking.
Prepare your workspace with a wooden cutting board, a coffee mug, and a muffin tin.
In a large bowl combine egg whites, vanilla, almond and oil. Use a hand mixer to beat until frothy.
In a separate bowl sift together the flour, sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Add the water and mix until you form a thick and pasty dough.
Slowly add the frothy egg whites to the thick and pasty dough, and mix until the dough becomes soupy.
Spoon the dough onto a silicone baking mat or a greased cookie sheet by the tablespoon full. Start by just making two cookies at a time. Use the back of the spoon to spread the dough into a thin circle.
Bake for 5-6 minutes or until the edges of the cookie turn golden brown. Remove from the oven and promptly take one cookie and place it on the wooden cutting board. Place your fortune in the center and fold the cookie in half. Quickly pick up the cookie so the rounded edge pointing up and the flat side pointing down. Place the middle of the flat side over the edge of a coffee mug and pull the corners down to shape the fortune cookie. Place the cookie in a muffin tin to help keep it’s shape until it hardens completely.
If you would like to dip the cookies in chocolates:Melt the chocolates according to package directions, dip one end of the cookie in the chocolate and place on a sheet of wax paper. Cover with sprinkles before the chocolate hardens. Let the chocolate harden completely.
