Ingredients

  • 4 large egg whites, room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 8 sour candy belts

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Put egg whites and sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment; mix on medium speed until combined. Mix in flour and salt. Add butter, cream, and vanilla; mix until just combined.
  2. Spoon 4 teaspoons batter onto a baking sheet lined with a nonstick baking mat. Thinly spread into a 5-by-5 1/2-inch rectangle. Repeat. Bake until pale golden around edges, about 6 minutes.
  3. Transfer sheet to a wire rack. Immediately loosen cookies with a spatula; flip. Starting at 1 short side, quickly roll cookie to the halfway point using the handle of a small wooden spoon. Repeat on opposite side. Repeat with remaining batter. Transfer to a wire rack; let cool.
  4. Cut candy belts in half lengthwise, about 3/8 inch wide. Wrap 1 candy strip around each scroll, and knot.

    Hi, Thanks for the cupcakes and water bottle label ideas. I’m having a graduation BBQ celebration for my daughter. She has done well with her grades and school has not been easy for her and we are more than proud.
    I’m going to enter for the printing of water bottle labels and cupcake toppers and you all have given me an idea for centerpieces to look like diplomas. I’m a planner and had run out of ideas for my own daughters special day. I can make everyone else’s events look fabulous, why not my own. Thank you soooo much, Denise Johnson, Snellville, Georgia

    1. I am interested in the water bottle labels as well. Did you have any trouble with the ink running if you put the newly labeled water bottle in an ice bucket?

  2. OMG! Those Freebie graduation printables are soooo gorgeous. Thanks for posting it. And also wanted to share that http://www.ModernPoms.com are having a free gift for every new registered member. I received really pretty tissue pom poms that I am going to decorate my party. Yippee :)
