1 egg white
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon red food coloring
1 pinch salt
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
8 crushed candy canes
4 oz. of white chocolate or almond bark.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Crush candy canes in a ziplock bag. Set aside.
- Write fortunes on strips of paper about 3 inches long and 1/2 inch wide. Generously butter 2 cookie sheets and line with parchment paper. Or line cookie sheets with silicone baking mats.
- Whisk egg whites and vanilla until foamy.
- Sift the flour, salt, and sugar and add to the egg white mixture.
- Place teaspoonfuls of the batter at least 4 inches apart on one of the prepared cookie sheets. Using a back of a spoon, move the batter into round shapes about 3 inches in diameter. Be careful to make batter as round and even as possible.
- Bake for 4 to 5 minutes.
- Remove from oven and immediately release cookie with a wide spatula and place upside down on a flat surface. Quickly place the fortune on the cookie, close to the middle and fold the cookie in half.
- Place the closed, creased edge across the rim of a measuring cup. Gently pull the pointed edges down, one on the inside of the cup and one on the outside.
- Place folded cookies into the cups of a muffin tin to hold their shape until cool.
- Melt white chocolate in a microwave for approximately 60 seconds.
- Holding each cookie by the pointed edges, dip each cookie half way into the melted chocolate. Immediately dip into the crushed candy canes.
- Wait until dry. Serve and eat.
