ST. LOUIS —

  • Write fortunes on small pieces of paper and set aside. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Using a pencil, draw two 31/2-inch circles on a sheet of parchment paper. Place paper, pencil mark down, on a baking sheet and set aside.
  • In a small bowl beat 1 egg white, 3 tablespoons sugar and ½ teaspoon vanilla extract. Add ¼ cup flour; mix well. If batter is too thick, add water 1 teaspoon at a time until thin enough to spread.
  • Spread 1 tablespoon batter over both circles using the back of a measuring spoon (Cookies will harden quickly after cooking, so it is recommended that only two are prepared at a time). Bake 4-5 minutes or until edges are browned.
  • Use a thin spatula to carefully remove cookies. Place a fortune in the center of each cookie and fold in half.
  • Place center of cookies over the rim of a glass; gently press ends down to bend in middle. Set cookies in a muffin tin to help keep their shape. Repeat with remaining batter. Recipe makes about 12 cookies.

Dip finished fortune cookies in melted chocolate and decorate with sprinkles for an extra-tasty treat!
