Recipe for LOVE! Fun cooking project to do with your littlest love bugs!

Valentine's Day Fortune Cookies

Ingredients you will need:

8 eggs whites
1 cup melted butter (use 1 cup oil instead to keep the calories down)
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 tablespoons water
2 cups sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt

Separate the egg whites and beat them until they form stiff peaks. Blend in the sugar and butter. (Discard egg yolks) Add the flour, vanilla, salt and water to the mixture and mix until smooth.

We put in red food coloring to make 'pink' fortune cookies for Valentine's Day!

Grease a cookie sheet or use parchment paper. Spoon the batter into 3 inch circles. Bake at 375* for about 4-5 minutes.

While those are cooking, write a few love notes or 'fortunes' for your loved ones!

When the cookies are done, remove them with a pancake turner onto wax paper or parchment paper. Place your love note or 'fortune' in the center of each circle and fold the cookie in half. Bend the cookies gently in the center. (If the cookies get to hard to bend, put them back in the oven for a minute or so)

We dipped ours in Chocolate to make them even more special for valentines day!
