Tips & Ideas


1 cup-all purpose flour

2 tablespoons cornstarch

½ cup sugar

½ teaspoon salt

½ cup salad oil

½ cup egg whites (whites of about 4 large eggs)

1 tablespoon water

2 tablespoons vanilla

Prepare fortune, poem or note to include in cookies. Cut or fold the paper so it is approximately 1″ x 3″ in size.

Mix all the dry ingredients and then add oil and egg whites until smooth; beat in water and vanilla.

Drop 1/3 cup of batter onto a greased baking sheet and spread evenly into a 10-inch circle. Bake only one or two at a time in a 300 degree oven for about 14 minutes or until light golden brown.; if underbaked, cookies will tear during shaping.

With a wide spatula, remove one cookie at a time from over. Working quickly, flip it onto a your hand (please use a towel or wear cotton gloves). Place fortune in center of cookie and fold it in half, but do not crease it. Then fold the two ends towards each other and hold for a minute or two while it hardens. Repeat until all the batter is used. Makes 6.
