These cookies are ideal for bake sales trying to promote a cause; customize the fortune to suit the occasion. Bake three cookies at a time so they'll be soft enough to shape. Tuck your message into the cookie while shaping. If the cookies become too brittle, return them to the oven for a few seconds to soften.

Yield:

18 cookies (serving size: 1 cookie)

Ingredients

1/2 cup bread flour (about 2 1/3 ounces)
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large egg whites

Preparation

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.
