 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3      Large         Egg Whites
      3/4  Cup           Sugar
      1/8  Teaspoon      Salt
      1/4  Pound         Butter -- melted
      1/4  Teaspoon      Vanilla
      1/4  Teaspoon      Almond Extract
    1      Cup           All-Purpose Flour -- sifted
    2      Tablespoons   Water
   Combine egg whites, sugar & salt. Beat in, one ingredient at a time,
   the butter, extracts, flour & water. Blend thoroughly & chill for 20
   minutes.Preheat to 350 deg. Do just 2 or 3 cookies at a time. Drop
   slightly rounded teaspoonfuls of thick batter for each cookie onto a
   lightly greased cookie sheet. Spread the dough very thin, using the
   back of the spoon, making rounds about 3 inches in diameter. Bake for
   5 minutes., or until the edges begin to brown lightly. Remove to a
   wire rack. Working quickly, place a fortune in the center of each
   cookie. Fold opposite sides together, crease crosswise at the center
   of the straight edge to form a flattened side, then bend backward for
   the traditional shape. Cool in muffin tins or small glasses to hold
   shape. Makes about 4 dozen.
