Fortune Cookies

5 Tbs unsalted butter
4 large egg whites
1 cup superfine sugar
1 cup all purpose flour, sifted
pinch salt
3 Tbs heavy cream
1 tsp almond extract

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet liberally with
cooking spray. Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat; set

In a bowl combine egg whites and sugar; beat on medium speed for
about 30 seconds. Add flour and salt and beat until combined.
Add butter, heavy cream, and almond extract and beat until combined,
about 30 seconds.

Pour 1 Tbs of batter onto half of baking sheet and spread with the
back of a spoon into a thin 5" circle; repeat on either half of
sheet. Bake until edges of cookies turn golden brown, about 8

Remove baking sheet to a heat resistant surface. Working as quickly
as possible, slide a spatula (an offset spatula works best) under
one of the cookies. Lift it up and place it on a clean kitchen
towel. Using your fingers, fold the cookie in half, pinching the
top together to form a loose semicircle. Hold the cookie with your
index fingers inserted at each open end and slide your thumbs
together along the bottom line. Press into the center of the cookie
while bending the two open ends together and down to form the shape
of a fortune cookie. This whole process should take about 10
seconds. Once the cookie hardens, which begins to happen almost
immediately, you cannot fold it. Place the fortune cookie on the
kitchen towel to cool and shape the second cookie. Repeat until
all the batter is used up. To speed up the process, bake 4 cookies
at a time, staggering 2 cookie sheets by 4 minutes to give you time
to shape.. To avoid wasting batter, practice folding with a circle
of paper first.
