I love a fortune cookie anytime I want to send a fun message to someone. Add a little sprinkle and any message inside is instantaneously more colorful. This one is for the moms! 

Sprinkle Fortune Cookies
yields 16 cookies

What you need:
2 large egg whites
1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
1⁄2 cup superfine sugar
1 1⁄4 teaspoons Almond Extract
Pinch of salt
1 jar
2-3 tablespoons Spring Break #libbiesprinkles
16 compliments for mom, written on 16 (1⁄2-by-5-inch) strips of paper using a nontoxic pen

What To Do:
Preheat the oven to 400° F.

Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat sprayed with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. Have a standard muffin tin ready.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the egg whites until foamy. Add the flour, superfine sugar, almond extract, 2 tablespoons water, and the salt and whisk for another 30 seconds, or until smooth. Preparing two cookies at a time on the baking sheet, measure
1 tablespoon batter and pour it onto a spot in the middle of one half of the baking sheet. Use the back of the tablespoon to spread the batter out into a super-thin, 4-inch-diameter circle. Repeat this process on the other half of the baking sheet to create a second thin cookie. At this time, sprinkle in your #libbiesprinkles! Bake the cookies on the middle rack of the oven for 6 to 8 minutes, until golden brown around the edges.

Working quickly (the cookies begin to harden about 10 seconds after you remove them from the oven), use an offset spatula
to remove the cookie from the cookie sheet and lay 1 backhanded compliment down the center of the cookie. Using your fingers, fold the cookie in half and pinch the top together to form a loose semi-circle. Hold the cookie with your index fingers inserted at each open end, and slide your thumbs together along the bottom line. Press into the center of the cookie while bending the two open ends together and down to meet and form the shape of a fortune cookie.Place the shaped cookies in the muffin tin to cool (this will help the cookie keep its shape as it cools). Repeat with the other cookie. Continue until all the batter has been used!

Libbie Loves: Mother’s Day Gift Ideas 2018

By Libbie Summers

From fragrant candles to flowery flamingoes, I’ve got you covered with fresh ideas for Mom this Mother’s Day. And, whatever you decide to get her, please make sure you include a note that tells her how much you love her…or even better, tell her a story you remember about your youth. I do my best each year to make my mom cringe with stories. We always get a laugh…well one of us does…that’s what the candle is for. 

1. Lilac Ribbed-Knit Polo Shirt from Acne Studios
Why? Because it’s soft and sporty and slightly retro and the perfect shade of purple. 

2. Grey Silk Palazzo Pants from The J. Peterman Company
Why? Because The J. Peterman Company catalog is the only one I read from cover to cover. I’ve been a fan since college…way before Seinfeld. 

3. White Crackle Oxford from Billy Reid
Why? Because Billy Reid does shoes right. The sizing on some of his women’s clothing is still a bit off, but his shoes…he crushes every time. These are timeless and timely. 

4. Platinum Whitening Pen and Mouth Guard from intelliWHITE
Why? Because Mom’s like white teeth! It’s simple really and intelliWHITE is supposed to be the new hot whitening thing that won’t leave mom’s gums sensitive. 

5. Powder Day Sprinkles from Libbie Summers
Why? Stop it already! What Mom wouldn’t LOVE some #libbiesprinkles. Even better if you get a jar for you and a jar for her and bake her something. Check out the #libbiesprinkle recipes on my website for ideas. 

6. 2018 Basic Planner from Marjolein Delhaas
Why? Because not all Mom’s love a flowery day planner. This one is bad ass and chic and cool! 

7. Lavender & Lovage Home Candle from Jo Malone
Why? Because a Jo Malone candle is like giving Mom a gift for a week! This scent is not too flowery either, a rosemary and thyme undertone make it have an earthy vibe. 

8. Wicker Ball Basket Bag from Ulla Johnson
Why? Because wicker handbags are all the rage and the shape of this one sets it apart from the rest. 

9. Flamingo Pool Float from Urban Outfitters
Why? Stop it already! The flowery flamingo has taken over for the swan. Mom will love the beauty of it’s gawkiness! Make sure to blow it up for her and then leave her alone to float in the pool!
