Our home is often filled with family and friends, so I'm always cooking up something. I created this recipe when I was looking for a treat to surprise my husband. —Susan Bettinger, Battle Creek, Michigan

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour

Nutritional Facts

1 cookie: 62 calories, 3g fat (2g saturated fat), 9mg cholesterol, 40mg sodium, 7g carbohydrate (4g sugars, trace fiber), 1g protein Diabetic Exchanges:1/2 starch, 1/2 fat

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Write fortunes on small strips of paper (3-1/2x1/4-in.); set aside. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a pencil, draw two 3-1/2-in. circles on a sheet of parchment paper. Place paper, pencil mark down, on a baking sheet; set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, beat butter, sugar, egg white and vanilla. Add flour; mix well. Spread 1 tablespoon batter over each circle. Bake 4-5 minutes or until lightly browned.
  3. Slide parchment paper onto a work surface. Cover one cookie with a kitchen towel. Place a fortune in the center of the other cookie; loosen cookie from parchment paper with a thin spatula. Fold cookie in half over fortune strip so the edges meet; hold edges together for 3 seconds.
  4. Place center of cookie over the rim of a glass; gently press ends down to bend cookie in middle. Cool 1 minute before removing to a wire rack. Repeat with second cookie. If cookies become too cool to fold, return to oven to soften for 1 minute. Repeat with remaining batter and fortunes. Yield: 10 cookies.

"They where very good it is hard to get them folded in to the shape with them being so hot out of oven and if you wait they are too hard. The taste was great and I would try to make them again."
