Chinese Fortune Cookies #2
Sifted cake flour
Butter a baking sheet & dust it lightly with flour. Heat oven to 350.
Beat eggs & gradually mix in sugar while beating until mixture is very thick. Beat water in a T at a time. Add & beat in the almond flavoring, preferably with an electric mixer, as it must be thorough.
Very gently fold in the flour to mix, but do not beat.Drop the batter by level tablespoonfuls on the buttered sheet 5 inches apart. Bake until very lightly browned. Remove from oven and shape while still quite warm, inserting fortunes. Let cool in glasses to hold the form.
