4 tablespoons of melted butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
Pinch of cinnamon
2 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup of flour, divided
Melted chocolate and chopped peanuts (for dipping)
Preheat oven to 375. Grease 2 9-X-13 inch baking sheets.
Stir together 4 tablespoons of melted butter, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/2 teaspoon almond extract and a pinch of cinnamon. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, lightly beat 2 egg whites, 1/2 cup sugar. add 1/4 cup of flour, and beat just until combined. Switch to a spatula and gently fold in the butter mixture. Add another 1/4 cup flour and fold just until combined.
Drop 1 tablespoon of the batter onto the baking sheet and use the back of a spoon to spread the batter.
Bake for 6 to 8 minutes, until the fortune cookies just barely begin to brown around the edges.
Place a fortune in the middle of each cookie. Fold the cookie in half, then gently pull the edges downward over the rim of a glass.
Since the cookies will stay flexible as long as they are warm make small batches to make the process easier.
For an added touch - dip half of each fortune cookie in melted chocolate. You can sprinkle with chopped peanuts or candied sprinkles.
