Low carb Fortune Cookies

These sweet little treats mean good fortune for your waistline
No Chinese feast is complete without fortune cookies!
These tantalizing mini-bites are a fun addition to beat the doldrums from any day. These are not gluten-free, but they are pretty delicious.
Fortune Cookies
Low-carb tortilla shell (I use Mission)
1 egg
Splenda (granular) 1 packet
1 tsp almond extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix egg with almond extract and Splenda (almond is a flavor used for real fortune cookies).
Cut 4-6, 3” circles into a large tortilla. (I use a knife around a 3” diameter glass).
 Paintegg solution along the outer edges of the inside of the round with a pastry brush or fingers. Fold the cookie in half. Press edges together. Paint the outer side cookie with the egg solution on both sides. Press fat side/edge of the cookie inwards to shape the cookie. Place on a cookie sheet, and bake for 10 minutes, or until slightly browned and hold their shape. Cool on a rack.
***Optional: If you want these to be crunchy, you could fry them in oil in a skillet.
Tip: I don’t add fortunes inside of these, because we tried– the paper was embedded into the breading no matter what we tried!Instead, wrap the cookie in a slim band of paper (with non-toxic pen) writing on it– which is the fortune– and secure with a small bit of tape underneath.Or tie with a red ribbon (good luck in the Chinese culture) with a small fortune written on it!
