Serving Size
1 Cookie
Number of Servings
    • 1/2  cup  bread flour (about 2 1/3 ounces)
    • 1/2  cup  sugar
    • 1  teaspoon  vanilla extract
    • 2  large egg whites

Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour and remaining ingredients in a food processor; process until blended. Scrape batter into a bowl using a rubber spatula; cover and chill 1 hour.  Preheat oven to 400°.    Cover 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Draw 3 (3-inch) circles on paper. Turn paper over; secure with masking tape. Spoon 1 teaspoon batter into center of each of the 3 drawn circles; spread evenly to fill circle. Bake one sheet at 400° for 5 minutes or until the cookies are brown just around the edges. Remove from the oven. Working quickly, loosen edges of cookies with a spatula, and turn over. Lay the handle of a wooden spoon and a prepared fortune along the center of 1 cookie. Fold cookie over so the edges meet over the spoon handle; press edges together. Remove spoon. Gently pull the ends of the cookie down over the rim of a small bowl (or jar); hold for a few seconds or until set. Repeat procedure with remaining cookies.  Repeat procedure until all of the batter is used. Cool cookies completely; store in an airtight container.  Pretty packaging – Chinese takeout boxes (available at craft stores)
