You will need:
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 c flour, all purpose

  1. In mixing bowl, mix egg white and vanilla extract just until foamy.

  2. Add flour and sugar into egg white mixture and mix well.

  3. Place 1 – 1 1/2 tsp of batter on cookies sheet, tilting sheet to form batter into round shapes. Batter shapes should be about 3 inches wide. Cookies should be placed at least 4 inches apart on cookie sheet.
