   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3      Tablespoons   Butter -- softened
    3      Tablespoons   Sugar
    1                    Egg White
      1/2  Teaspoon      Vanilla
      1/3  Cup           Flour
 
 In a small bowl, mix butter, sugar, egg white and vanilla.
 Incorporate flour.
 Drop by spoonfull (5 ml) on greased cookie sheet.
 Flatten the cookies (to 3 inches diameter approx) with back of
 spoon.
 Cook in pre-heated oven at 400 F (or 200 C) for 3-4 minutes or
 until sides = golden color. Remove from oven.
 
 With a spatula, remove cookies from sheet.
 Turn them over.
 Put a fortune message in the center of the cookie.
 Fold the cookie in two.  Press the sides for a few seconds to
 make it hold.
 Lift cookie by the two ends, and press its middle against
 the rim of a glass (will give it its “regular” shape).
 
 Put each cookie in a muffin mold to make it keep its shape
 until cold.

 Gives 18 cookies.

 IMPORTANT:
 I tried cooking the cookies in two batches. Yikes!
 Problem: they “harden” so fast, you can hardly get to fold the
 the third one after you put the message in it.
 By that time they are so hard you can not fold the rest.
 
 
 It is imperative to cook them...2 at a time!
 Unless you have helpers!!!
 Next time, I might try keeping them “soft” using steam.
