Fortune Cookies

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Whip the egg whites and sugar on high speed for about 2 minutes, until it's frothy. Whip in the melted butter, vanilla, almond extract, and water until mixed. Add in the flour and mix until itjust disappears. With a tablespoon measure, spoon the batter onto the parchment paper and spread it out into an even 3 inch circle ( I used my finger towards the end.  I did about 4 at a time once I got the hang of it. They do start hardening quickly so you have to work fast.
Bake your fortune cookies for 7-8 minutes, until the edges brown slightly. If they are too dark they will snap and if they are too light they just bend all weird.
When your fortune cookies are done baking, remove them from the oven and CAREFULLY fold your fortune cookie in half--- they will be hot, but you do have to work kind of fast. That is when you slip in the note. To get the bend I used my measuring cup a little,
then bent them by hand into the muffin tin to let them keep their shape.
When all of them were done I heated up the chocolate melts and dipped the ends in and sprinkled them with red and pink sprinkles.
When all was said and done they went into a bag with a note that said "I'm fortunate to have you in my life"
