Black Sesame Fortune Cookie
Buddakan NYC

Fortune cookies, if they get dressed up at all, are usually doused in some melted black or white chocolate. But, how about this: a black and gold fortune cookie that gets its eye-catching colors from black sesame powder and gold leaf. Suddenly, the lottery numbers aren't the most interesting thing about the humble fortune cookie.

If you just want to make regular fortune cookies, omit the black sesame powder and gold leaf.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons black sesame powder*
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Cooking spray (optional)
  • Gold leaf**

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.

Using a hand whisk or an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment on low speed, cream the butter, toasted sesame oil, and sugar to a paste. Keep stirring while you gradually add the egg whites and vanilla extract.

Meanwhile, stir the flour, sesame powder, and salt together in a separate bowl. Add the flour mixture in small batches to the butter mixture and stir to achieve a homogeneous and smooth batter/paste. Be careful to not overmix.

Spread the batter onto a Silpat or greased cookie sheet, forming circles at least 4 inches in diameter and roughly 1/16-inch thick. Apply gold leaf to the unbaked circles.

Bake in the oven until the cookies are set, for 12-14 minutes. Once cool enough to handle, working quickly, form the cookies into the desired shape. Fold the circle in half, then crimp in the center, and bring the 2 points together. Return to the oven briefly to rewarm if the cookies prove too brittle to bend. Cool completely, then store in an airtight container until needed.
