- 1 egg white
-1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1/4 cup of unbleached all- purpose flour
- 1/4 white sugar
Preheat the oven to 400 F (about 200 Degree C).
Mix the egg white and vanilla until foamy but not stiff. Sift the flour, salt, and sugar and blend into the egg white mixture.
Place teaspoonfuls of the batter at least 4 inches apart on the prepared sheets.
Now that's the important bit: Do not make too many, because the cookie have to be really hot to form them and once they cool it is too late. Start with 2 or 3 to a sheet and see how many you can do.
Bake for 5 minutes or until the cookie has turned a golden color 1/2 inch wide the outer edge of the circle. The center will remain pale. While the sheet is baking, prepare another one.
Remove from the oven quickly and quickly move the cookie with a wide spatula and place upside down on a wooden board. Quickly place the fortune on the cookie, close to the middle and fold the cookie in half. Place the folded edge across the rim of a measuring cup and pull the pointed edges down, one on the inside of the cup and one on the outside. Place the folded cookies into the cup of a muffin tin or egg carton to hold their shape until firm.
