4 egg whites
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
2 tablespoons water
1/2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Blend the sugar into the egg whites until nice and fluffy. Melt the butter and set it aside so it can cool off. Add the flour, salt, vanilla, water, and butter to the sugar mixture. Beat it until it is smooth. On a well-greased cookie, sheet, pour batter into 3 inch circles.
Bake them for 8 to 10 minutes until they are golden brown. Lay the fortune paper into the center of the cookie. Fold the cookie into thirds and bend the center gently.
If the cookie gets too hard to bend, reheat in the oven for a minute. That should make it easier to bend into shape. This recipe yields 30 fortune cookies.
