What is Key Lime Fortune Cookies?
A fortune cookie is a crisp and sugary cookie with a piece of paper inside, a “fortune”, on which is an aphorism, or a vague prophecy. The message inside may also include a Chinese phrase with translation and/or a list of lucky numbers used by some as lottery numbers.

1. Heat the oven to 150C/fan 130C/Gas mark 2.
2. Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat. Write fortunes on pieces of paper measuring approximately 6cm x 1cm.
3. Whisk the egg whites, vegetable oil and water together until frothy but not aerated.
4. Sieve the flour, cornflour and salt together in a bowl, then stir in the Sugar and Crumbs Key Lime Natural Flavoured Icing Sugar.
5. Add the egg white mixture to the bowl and beat to a smooth batter. Try not to incorporate any air during the beating as you don’t want bubbles in the batter.
6. Divide the batter equally into two bowls.
7. Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of batter from the second bowl into a disposable piping bag and set aside. Add some food colouring to the remaining batter.
8. Place 2 tablebspoons of the green batter on the silicone mat spaced well apart. Using the back of a metal spoon swirl the mixture to form two circles measuring 9-10cm.
9. Snip the end off the piping bag and pipe 6 dots around the edge of the circle 1cm in from the edge.
10. Place a cocktail stick in the middle of one of the white dots and drag the cocktail stick to the next dot and then the next dot (like dot to dot), until you have been through all the dots to form a white pattern around the edge of the green batter.
11. Bake 10-12 minutes until the outer edge is light golden. Shape as above, making 6 in total.
