- 1/4 tsp salt shopping list
- 1/4 tsp vanilla shopping list

How to make it
- Let egg whites stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Grease 2 large nonstick baking sheets. In a medium bowl vigoursly whisk egg whites, sugar, flour, butter, salt, vanilla, and almond extract until smooht. Let batter stand for 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, cut paper into twenty-four 3x1/2-inch strips. Write fortunes on strips with pens.
- To bake cookies per sheet, dip the rim of a 31/4-inch diamter glass into the batter. Gently press the glass onto prepared baking sheet to mark a circle. Trace a second circle 5 inches from the first. Spoon 1 heaping tsp of batter into the center of each circle. Spread batter evenly with back of spoon to fill the circle. Bake in a 400 degree oven, on shee at a time, for 4-5 minutes or until cookie edges are brown (they may brown unevenly, which is OK).
- Transfer baking sheet to a rack. Working very quickly, remove 1 cookie with a thin, flexible metal spatula and place it bottom side up on work surface. Place a paper fortune strip on center of each cookie, extending one end of paper from one side. Fold cookie in half; place the folded edge against the rim of a glass measure. Press the ends down, holding the cookie in place for about 10 seconds or until it begins to harden. Repeat for the second cookie (if it becomes too hard to shape, return it to the oven for a few seconds to soften). Cool cookies on a wire rack. Repear with remaining batter, cleaning, drying, and greasing baking sheets after each batch.
- Dip the cookie halves without the protruding paper fortunes into melted semisweet chocolate or white chocolate. Transfer to wire racks. Let cokies stand 1 hour until set.
