    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 20
    2 egg whites
    ¼ c. Hy-Vee granulated sugar
    ¼ c. packed Hy-Vee brown sugar
    ½ c. Hy-Vee all-purpose flour
    2 ½ tbsp. Hy-Vee butter, melted and cooled
    1 ½ tbsp. Hy-Vee skim milk
    ½ tsp. Hy-Vee vanilla extract
    Few drops blue food coloring, optional
    20 paper fortunes


    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a pencil, trace around a 4-inch-diameter bowl three times on parchment paper. Turn paper over on baking sheet; set aside.
    2. In a mixing bowl, beat egg whites and sugars with an electric mixer on medium until foamy, about 1 minute. Beat in flour on low just until combined. Add butter, milk, vanilla and, if desired, food coloring; beat until combined.
    3. Drop about 1 tablespoon of batter in the center of each circle on parchment paper. Using a spatula, spread batter into a thin, even layer onto circle shapes. Bake until pale golden and edges darken slightly, about 5 to 6 minutes.
    4. Working quickly, slide an offset spatula under cookie. Lift it up and using your fingers, fold the cookie in half, pinching the top together to form a loose semicircle. Place a paper fortune in cookie. Fold the cookie over the edge of a measuring cup, pressing in the center and bending the two open ends together. Once the cookie hardens and holds its shape, transfer to the cups of a muffin tin to cool. Repeat with remaining batter. Store cookies in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
