Chinese fortune cookies iii

Yield: 48 Servings

Measure Ingredient
3 Large egg whites
¾ cup Sugar
⅛ teaspoon Salt
¼ pounds Butter, melted
¼ teaspoon Vanilla
¼ teaspoon Almond extract
1 cup Sifted all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons Water

Combine egg whites, sugar & salt. Beat in, one ingredient at a time, the butter, extracts, flour & water. Blend thoroughly & chill for 20 minutes.Preheat to 350 deg. Do just 2 or 3 cookies at a time. Drop slightly rounded teaspoonsful of thick batter for each cookie onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Spread the dough very thin, using the back of the spoon, making rounds about 3 inches in diameter. Bake for 5 min., or until the edges begin to brown lightly. Remove to a wire rack. Working quickly, place a fortune in the center of each cookie.

Fold opposite sides together, crease crosswise at the center of the straight edge to form a flattened side, then bend backward for the traditional shape. Cool in muffin tins or small glasses to hold shape. Makes about 4 dozen. Shared by Micheal Kean, Prodigy ID# VMXV03A
