    3                    Egg whites
      1/2   c            Sugar
      1/8   ts           Salt
      1/4   ts           Vanilla
    1       c            All-purpose flour
    1       t            Instant tea
    2       tb           Water
      1/2   c            Margarine, melted
                         Fortunes on slips of paper
 
   Mix egg whites, sugar and salt thoroughly with spoon.
   Mix in remaining ingredients, except fortunes.  Cover
   bowl with plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
   
   Preheat oven to 350 F.  Grease baking sheet.  Have
   clean white cotton gloves ready to use when folding
   and shaping the hot cookies.  If gloves are not
   available, use two pieces of paper towelling folded to
   several thicknesses to protect fingers from the hot
   cookies.  Also have some clean muffin tins ready to
   hold baked cookies while they cool.
   
   Shape and bake 2 cookies at a time.  For each cookie,
   drop 1 teaspoon batter onto a baking sheet.  Spread
   the batter with back of spoon to make a 3-inch circle.
   
   Bake at 350F for 3 to 5 minutes, or until edges turn
   light brown.
   
   WORK VERY QUICKLY.  Remove one cookie with wide
   spatula to counter top. Place a fortune paper across
   center of cookie.  Using gloves or paper towelling,
   fold edge of cookie over to make a semicircle.  Hold
   cookie on the ends and place the middle of folded edge
   over top of muffin pan; bend ends down.  Place folded
   cookie carefully in a muffin cup to cool.  Repeat
   process.  Makes 36 cookies.
