The other night, Derrick asked me to make a batch of fortune cookie batter....for what? Ice cream bowls! I knew they would taste good, but I wasn't sure how they would hold up. Here's the final product and they were amazing!! He did a great job.
I've posted a couple of times about the fortune cookies that we make teachers every year for Valentine's Day. I used that recipe and the same technique for baking the cookies as for the bowls.
To make the bowls, increase the batter on your cookie sheet to 1/4 cup. Spread into a smooth circle 6-8" in diameter (depending on how large you want your bowl to be). When they come out of the oven, working quickly, form your cookie over the back of a small glass bowl. Place another upside-down bowl on top to keep the cookie in shape. Let cool about 60 seconds and remove the top bowl. Carefully move cookie from bottom bowl and let cool on a rack.
When making fortune cookies. the edges get brown and the centers remain cream colored. To get an even color throughout the cookie, you can add a small dab of Wilton's concentrated food coloring (buttercup yellow). Derrick did that for the last half of the batch and they looked awesome.
They were a hit!
