Good Fortune Cookies

2 egg whites
1/3 C sugar
4 T melted butter, cooled.
1/2 C flour
1/4 t salt
1/2 t almond extract
1/2 t lemon extract
fortune strips (make your own little messages to put inside)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a cookie sheet thoroughly.
Whip the egg whites until light and foamy. Blend in sugar and
continue to beat to soft peaks. Pour in butter, flour, salt, and
extracts; mix well until combined. Drop a tablespoon full onto
the prepared cookie sheet. Using the back of a spoon, spread
batter into a very thin 3 inch round. Just bake 2 or 3 at a time,
they harden fast. Bake for about 5 to 8 minutes, until the edges
are a light golden brown. Remove the cookies with a spatula.
Lay a fortune strip in the lower middle of the cookie and
gingerly(they are hot!) fold in half to make a semi circle.
Bend the edges up toward each other to make a crescent.
Cool in a muffin tin to maintain shape until crisp. Repeat
with remaining batter.
