1/2 cup egg whites 1/2 cup powdered sugar 1/3 cup sifted flour 3 Tbsp. butter, melted and cooled 3/4 tap. vanilla extract Beat egg whites until frothy; gradually add powdered sugar, beating well after each addition; beat until stiff peaks are formed. Fold in flour in halves. Blend in cooled butter and vanilla. Quickly grease a preheated cookie sheet and bake a trial cookie - if it is too brittle to shape, the batter needs a little more flour; if it is thick and difficult to shape, add a little more cooled butter. Drop mixture by heaping tablespoons 6 to 8 inches apart onto hot cookie sheet (2 to 4 on a sheet, depending on the size of the sheet); spread very thinly, being careful not to make holes. Bake at 400 F for 2 to 3 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Immediately remove from cookie sheet and quickly shape inside a bowl. Let cool. Store in tightly covered container. These are especially great for holding sundaes, but anything else can be put in them. One of my favorites is fresh fruit with a hunk of fresh whipped cream on top.
