Ingredients

  • 2

    egg whites

  • ½

    cup flour (sifted)

  • ½

    cup sugar

  • 2

    tablespoons water

  • 1

    tsp almond extract

  • ½

    tsp. vanilla extract

Directions

Set oven to 400F degrees. Place egg whites in a bowl and beat with electric mixer on medium speed until very frothy, almost soft peaks. Add sifted flour, Add sugar, almond, and vanilla then mix. Stir in 2 tablespoons of water to thin batter. Using a Silpat baking mat, parchment paper or un-greased baking pan place 1 tablespoon of batter on pan. Since the moisture content in the batter is high, it does make the parchment paper wrinkle slightly but it still worked.) Working from the center in a circular motion, spread the batter into a 5 inch circle. Start with two cookies. Once comfortable with the process more can be baked at one time. Bake until edges are lightly browned. Start watching closely at 4 minutes. Working quickly, remove cookie from pan with a very thin spatula. Flip the cookie over and place slip of paper on top. Bring sides up and pinch together. Next bend cookie over the edge of a cup. The whole process of forming the cookie should take about 10 seconds. Once formed place cookies in a muffin tin to help them keep their shape while cooling. NOTE: The cookies are VERY hot. It is easy to burn fingers on the cookies as they are being formed. Try wearing thin white gloves to protect fingers.
