Directions:
Heat oven to 400. Spray cookie sheet liberally with cooking spray. Melt butter in small saucepan over low heat; set aside. In bowl of electric mixer, combine egg whites and sugar and beat on medium speed 30 seconds. Add flour and salt and beat until combined. Add butter, heavy cream and almond extract; beat until combined, 30 seconds. Pour 1 tablespoon of batter onto half of baking sheet and spread with back of a spoon into thin 5-inch circle; repeat on other half of sheet. Bake until edges of cookies turn golden brown, 8 minutes. Transfer baking sheet to heat-resistant surface. Working as quickly as possible, slide a spatula (offset spatula works best) under one of the cookies. Lift it up and place on clean kitchen towel. Using your fingers, fold cookie in half, pinching top together to form a loose semicircle. Hold cookie with index fingers inserted at each open end and slide thumbs together along bottom line. Press into center of cookie while bending two open ends together and down to form fortune cookie shape. This process takes about 10 seconds. Once cookie hardens, almost immediately, you cannot fold it. Place cookie on kitchen towel to cool and shape second cookie. Repeat until all batter is used up. To speed up process, bake four cookies at a time, staggering 2 cookie sheets by 4 minutes to allow time to shape. To avoid wasting batter, practice folding with a circle of paper first. Write message on long strip of sturdy art paper. Thread fortune through cookie when it has cooled.
