fortune cookies

We (TWD) started baking through Dorie’s Cookies back in 2016 with Peanut Butter Change-Ups, and now, almost six years later, here we are finishing off the book off with these Fortune Cookies! It feels weird to put a book that’s lived on my kitchen table for so long up on the shelf, but I’m excited for my baking schedule free up a bit for other stuff I haven’t had the chance to make. While it’s a bit bittersweet to finish cooking though this book, I’ll bake on with my group of friends from Baking with Dorie, so I’m very happy for that!

Back to the fortune cookies…they’re made from a standard tuile batter, flavored with vanilla and almond extracts. The trick to shaping these cookies is to work quickly, and while they are hot from the oven and pliable. Dorie recommends baking just a few cookie circles at a time, so you can fill and fold them without cracking. I have asbestos fingers and kept the cookies on the hot sheet tray to do the first fold over the fortune (rather than transferring them to the countertop, where I think they basically cool immediately, and then it becomes difficult to do the next bend). I managed to bake five at a time that way, and since I just made a half recipe, it only took me two rounds in the oven. These are thin and crisp and tasty, and reveal your fortune with just a delicate snap.

For the recipe, see Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the final DC TWD Blogroll!

  1. Yours look way better than mine , but I agree they were tasty.

  2. Congratulations Steph…and thank you for keeping us all together and baking along through the book! I can’t claim to have finished this entire cookbook like the other two I have done, but I have enjoyed making all of the recipes since stepping back into this cookbook a few years ago. So glad we still have two other cookbooks to be baking/cooking through! 😍

  3. Yours are absolutely perfect – as is everything you bake. Thanks for keeping us on track! It’s always a pleasure to bake along with you!

  4. Wow 6 years went by fast. I am looking forward to the decrease load even though it was a tasty trip. Your fortune cookies look beautiful and I love the fortune inside:)
