    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 24
    ¾ c. Hy-Vee granulated sugar
    ½ c. Hy-Vee unsalted butter, melted
    3 large egg whites
    1 tsp. Hy-Vee vanilla extract
    1 c. Hy-Vee all-purpose flour
    1 tbsp. Hy-Vee skim milk
    Hy-Vee red food coloring
    White chocolate melting wafers, melted, if desired
    Nonpareils, if desired

    Things To Grab

    • Paper
    • Pen
    • Baking sheet
    • Parchment paper
    • Large bowl
    • Electric mixer
    • Offset spatula
    • Glass measuring cup or glass
    • Wire cooling rack


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut 24 (3-1/2 x 1/4-inch each) strips of paper. Write fortunes on papers; set aside. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside. 

    2. Combine sugar, butter, egg whites, and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Beat on medium until light and fluffy. Beat in flour until combined. Beat in milk until smooth. Divide batter in half; use food coloring to tint one portion pink and one red. Drop 3 tablespoons batter in mounds 4-inches apart onto prepared baking sheet; spread each into a 3-inch-diameter circle. Using opposite color batter, pipe a small heart at top of each circle. Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until set. 

    3. Working quickly, slide an offset spatula under a cookie. Place a fortune across center of cookie, then fold cookie in half. Gently bend folded edge of cookie over the rim of a measuring cup or glass. Place on wire rack to cool. Repeat with remaining cookies. (Return cookies to oven 1 minute if folding becomes difficult.) Repeat with remaining batter, alternating colors. If desired, dip half of each cookie into melted white chocolate and sprinkle with nonpareils; let dry.
