Your Kitchen Friends
Our guests often ask for recipes from the Latigo Ranch kitchen.  We plan to post a new recipe here regularly. 

Lisa searches for recipe ideas and often finds new recipes to try, and if we like them, Randy experiments to figure out how to make them work when preparing them for 30+ guests.  Sometimes what we end up with is quite different from the original  and other times we make little change.  

Since most of you don't live at 9,000 ft. above sea level like we do, we have adjusted the recipes for baked goods for low altitude.  If you do need to correct for higher altitudes, please feel free to email us for suggestions.

Enjoy your cooking, eating, and friendship around the table.

Fortune Cookies

Sunday, September 06, 2009

Type and cut out strips of sayings that are about 3 ½ inches long

½ C cake flour
4 T sugar
2 T cornstarch  
1/8 t salt

8 T canola oil  
¼ C egg whites

½ C water or more  

Sift together the first four ingredients.   Mix the oil and egg whites and stir into the dry until smooth.  Add the water gradually, mixing thoroughly.  On a lightly greased griddle, pour ~1 T batter into a 3 ½ inch circle.  Cook over low heat until lightly browned about 4 minutes.  Turn over and cook another minute more.  When done, put cookie on a towel, place the fortune in the middle, fold cookie in half, then fold again over the edge of a bowl.  Place shaped cookies in a muffin tin to cool.  Should make 16 cookies.
