Yield: 1 Servings
|4 tablespoons||(1/2 stick) unsalted butter|
|2 teaspoons||Almond extract|
Cut 36 strips of paper (¼ x 1½ inches), and write fortunes on them.
Melt butter in a saucepan; set aside to cool. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually beat in sugar and salt until dissolved. Stir in cooled melted butter, flour and almond extract. Beat until well blended. Drop dough by rounded tablespoon about 3 inches apart onto baking sheet. Bake 8 - 10 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.
(Make only 6 at a time). Working quickly, remove one cookie at a time, hold in palm of your hand, and place one folded fortune in center. Fold in half, drape over handle of a wooden spoon. Fold corners to meet, gently press together. Slide cookie off spoon. Repeat with remaining cookies. If they become too hard, place back in oven for a minute to soften.
