Recipe Created By: Robbie
Prep. Time: 0:45
Yield: about 24
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 pinch salt
2 egg whites
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. almond OR lemon extract
1/4 cup melted butter
-Write fortunes on strips of paper
about 3" X 1/2"; set aside.
-Generously grease 2 cookie sheets; set aside.
-Combine flour, sugar, and salt; set aside.
-Whisk together egg white, vanilla, and extract; whisk in melted butter.
-Sift dry mixture into egg mixture and stir to mix.
-Pour batter by teaspoonfuls 4" apart on a cookie sheet; tilt the pan to
move the batter into round shapes about 3" in diameter. Start with only
2 per pan, as cookies need to be hot to shape. As you become better at
folding, you can make up to 4 per pan.
-Bake in a 400 degree oven for 5 minutes, or until the edges have
browned 1/2" of the way to the center.
-Working quickly, remove from oven and scrape off pan with a greased
metal spatula; place a fortune in the center of the cookie, fold cookie
in half over fortune, then bring the corners of the cookie together.
-Place folded cookies in a muffin tin to cool.
-Repeat with remaining batter.
Notes: Your first 2-4 cookies are
probably going to look awful. Use these to as practice and to sample.
Just remember, practice makes perfect!
