Ingredients

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

Nutritional Facts

1 cookie equals 62 calories, 3 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 9 mg cholesterol, 40 mg sodium, 7 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 1 g protein.

Directions

  1. Write fortunes on small strips of paper (3-1/2 in. x 1/4 in.); set aside. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Draw two 3-1/2-in. circles on paper; set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, beat the butter, sugar, egg white and vanilla. Add flour; mix well. Spread 1 tablespoon batter over each circle. Bake at 400° for 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 for 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.
