Fortune Cookies

Helen Story, B.H.S.

  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 Tsp cornstarch
  • Dash of salt
  • 2 Thsp cooking oil
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 Tbsp water

In mixing bowl, stir together flour, sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Add cooking oil and egg white; stir till smooth. Add the water; mix well. Make one cookie at a time by pouring 1 tablespoon of the batter on lightly greased skillet or griddle. Spread into a 2 1/2 inch circle. Cook over low heat about 4 minutes, or till lightly browned. Turn cookie with wide spatula; cook for 1 minute more. Working quickly, place cookie on pot holder. Put paper strip* with fortune in center (fold paper if necessary); fold cookie in half and then fold again over edge of bowl. Place in muffin pan to cool. Repeat with remaining batter.

Makes 8 cookies.

*Preparation tip: Before you start making the cookies, write fortunes on small strips of paper. Come up with clever prophecies to tuck inside these American cookies. Do a takeoff on your family’s background – or quotes from someone you admire. Have Fun.
