Happy Valentines Day!

Made pink fortune cookies for my family this morning!
They were yummy!
Easy recipie

2 egg white beaten until frothy and soft peaks
1/2 cup sifted flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp of almond extract
mix until smooth
2 Tbls water
red or pink food coloring
mix these in until thinned and pink

I use a small skillet 
on med heat
spoon a tablespoon or so onto the skillet
tilt around to make  thin layer  (like with crepes)
  you want it very thin about 4- 5 inches round
then you wait until it looks dry and starting to 
turn golden around the edges a bit
then you can flip it
the second side is only there for a second or two
then remove
I put on parchment and carefully place paper fortune inside
fold in half
and pressing middle on rim of a cup fold again
I then placed inside a muffin tin to aid keeping their shape until 
they fully crisp up.
If you cook too short they won't fully crisp up so be patient 
while they are cooking.  A few trial ones and you will have it down.

so much fun and supper yummy!!!
