Step 6: Mix the ingredients

1) Whisk the eggs until they are slightly foamy.

If you do not have a whisk, a fork can be used, but it will take longer.

2) Add flour, sugar, and almond or vanilla extract.

3) Mix thoroughly until smooth.

The batter may seem too thick at first (like a dough), but keep mixing. If it doesn't become thinner, add another egg white.
I just made a batch of these to pass out to family members to announce my pregnancy. On the back of the fortunes announcing a baby is on it's way, I put Lucky Numbers like they do on the manufactured ones but only I put the numbers that make up the baby's due date.<br> <br> I can't wait to pass these out tonight. :) I recommend you make these one by one unless you will have someone helping you fold them asap. It helps to have the fortunes already folded in half, when I didn't fold the fortunes in half, some of the messages were visible in a few of them.<br> <br> I tried one and they taste even better than the packaged manufactured ones you get at the restaurants. I will most definitely makes these again to reveal the baby's gender rather than a gender reveal cake.
I just realized National Fortune Cookie Day was yesterday. Rats! I will be ready for next year, anyway. <br> <br>Very nice explanation on the folding. That part is very tricky for us spatially-challenged folks.
