Ingredients
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter, cooled
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 2 1/2 by 1/2-inch fortune strips
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a cookie sheet thoroughly.

  • Whip the egg whites on low speed until light and foamy. Blend in the sugar and continue to beat until soft peaks form.

  • Pour in the melted butter, flour, salt, and extracts; mix until well combined. Drop a tablespoon of the batter onto the prepared cookie sheet. Using the back of a spoon, spread the batter evenly into very thin 3-inch rounds. Alternatively, use the lid of a jar with a 3-inch circle punched out as a template, pour the batter in the ring, and remove. Because you must work quickly to shape these cookies, bake just 3 at a time.

  • Bake for about 5 to 8 minutes or until the edges are a light golden color.

  • Remove the cookies with a spatula and place on a work surface. Lay a fortune in the lower middle of the cookie, and gingerly (they will be hot) fold in half to make a semi-circle. Bend the edges up toward each other to make a crescent. Drag the crease across the rim of a small measuring cup, with the ends facing down. Cool in mini muffin tins to hold shape until crisp. Repeat with remaining batter.
