Servings: 24 Cookies

  • 5 tablespoons butter melted
  • 4 egg whites
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Dipping Chocolate
  • Sprinkles


Before you make the first cookie:

  • Preheat oven to 375°.
  • Gather your materials: you will need a cutting board, a coffee mug and a muffin tin.
  • Print out and cut fortunes. (Be sure to do this before you bake the cookies. You will not have time to do it when they come out of the oven!)

Mixing the batter:

  • In a blender or mixer, combine egg whites and sugar. Beat for about a minute, and then add flour and salt and beat another 30 seconds. (I do this all in my blender.)
  • Add melted butter, heavy cream, and vanilla and almond extracts and beat until mixed.

Making the cookies:

  • Spoon 1 tablespoon of dough onto silicone baking sheet or parchment paper. (I use a Silpat sheet.) Spread with a spoon into a thin 4-5 inch circle. Start by making 2 circles at a time. (I don’t ever do more than 3 at a time.)
  • Bake for 5-6 minutes, or until the edges are lightly browned.
  • Remove from the oven and immediately take one cookie and place it on a wooden cutting board. Keep the side that was "down" while cooking down.
  • Place a fortune in the middle of the cookie and fold in half. Place the middle of the flat side over the edge of a coffee mug. Pull the corners down to shape.

  • Immediately place the formed cookie into a muffin cup and allow it to cool completely.
