Diploma Cookies

With Graduation Season fast approaching, I thought I would share this recipe with you so you could make them for YOUR favorite Grad! :0)  As your baking them you can go down memory lane and recall all those fun days with your little one.  Now you're onto a new phase in life and will be making new memories.  Happy Baking!
2 egg whites
1 tablespoon fresh lime or lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 pound vanilla-flavored candy coating (almond bark)
Decorate with a narrow ribbon in school colors

Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray cookie sheets with no-stick cooking spray. Generously butter handle of wooden spoon. Set aside.

Combine egg whites and lime juice in large bowl. Beat at high speed until foamy. Continue beating, gradually adding sugar, until glossy and stiff peaks form. Gently stir in flour and butter.

Spoon 2 teaspoon batter onto prepared cookie sheet; evenly spread batter to 3-inch circle. Repeat with remaining batter, placing only 3 cookies on each cookie sheet. (Do not reuse cookie sheets without first washing and reapplying no-stick cooking spray.)

Bake for 5 to 8 minutes or until edges just begin to brown. Immediately shape cookies by wrapping around buttered handle of wooden spoon. Gently remove from cookie sheet; cool completely.

Melt candy coating in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted (3 to 4 minutes). Carefully dip each end of cookie in coating. Gently shake cookie to remove excess coating. (Cookies are very fragile.) Place on waxed paper until coating is set (15 minutes). Repeat with remaining cookies and coating.
