Great British Bake Off Technical Bake 2: Fortune Cookies

September 10, 2017

This week I’m siding with Kate who said what we were all thinking. Why would you make fortune cookies? I dunno, the only reason I can think of is that the fortunes inside them are so awful normally that you are desperate to put your own in. I can’t say I’ve ever thought to myself “I really want to give someone a fortune cookie but I just don’t want to risk the dodgy sentiments so I’ll make my own”. But y’know, if that’s a feeling you can sympathise with then here’s the recipe – go for it. Me, I’m going to stick to using this recipe for tuille biscuits (aka the biscuits that think they are pringles)

Anyway. I tried. I failed and I failed hilariously. I don’t have silicone mat, which made it particularly tricky but I think I also over whipped the eggwhites too. Or maybe I’m just rubbish at them. I think I can live with that. That said, my mate Bethany made them perfectly with no hassle. So yeah, probably blame the worker not the tools in this case. Here – have a giggle (these were by far the best of the bunch):

    Haha, I love that you gave them a bash. I was also in the “why would I want to bother with that?” camp. I imagine if I made them they would look far worse!
