Do U know who Lauryn Cohen, aka the Bella Baker is??

Well, she's the queen of sweet, and is known for her creative treats and crafts! She recently launched a holiday baking guide called Sweet Gifts, filled with innovative and delicious recipes for the holidays.

She wants us to kick off the new year in style — so listen up! Here are some of her favorite NYE recipes!

Homemade Fortune Cookies:

5 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 egg whites
1 cup superfine sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 pinch salt
3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons peach schnapps (optional)
mini muffin tin

Write a message or resolution on a small strip of paper. Preheat oven to 375°F.

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Melt butter in the microwave and set aside to cool.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine egg whites and sugar for 1 minute. Mix in flour and salt; beat until incorporated. Mix in the melted butter, heavy cream, vanilla, and peach schnapps and beat until smooth.

Place 4 or 5 teaspoon-size scoops of batter at least 3 inches apart on prepared baking sheets (you make only a few cookies at a time because you will need to work quickly with them once they are removed from the oven). Using the back of the spoon, smooth batter into flat, thin, even rounds about 3 inches in diameter (the batter should be as thin as possible; otherwise it will be difficult to fold the cookies once they come out of the oven). Bake 8–9 minutes or until edges are just lightly golden brown. Remove from oven.

Working very quickly, place a paper strip in the center of the cookie. Fold cookie in half and gently press down on the round side to seal it in place.

Take the two corners of the straight folded side and pull them in toward each other, coaxing the middle of the cookie inward to form the familiar shape of the fortune cookie. Place folded cookies immediately in a mini muffin tin to hold their shape until firm. Makes 30 fortune cookies.

Tip

Peach schnapps adds an unexpected bite of flavor to these crispy cookies, and it happens to be my grandma’s favorite flavor addition to many of her cookie recipes. If making these with the kids, omit the schnapps or just add it to half the batter.

Mmmmmmm!!

That all sounds SUPER delicious!!

Now U can celebrate the New Year with an Asian flair!
