 Ingredients List

  • 1 Egg
  • 1/3 c Sugar
  • 2 tb Corn oil
  • 2 tb Water
  • 1/4 c Cornstarch


Have fortunes prepared in advance. Beat egg on low speed until frothy. Beat
in sugar, a little at a time, & continue beating until mixture is a very
light yellow and thick. Fold in corn oil. Blend water and a little of the
egg mixture into cornstarch, then stir into the remaining egg mix.Heat
heavy, well seasoned griddle to 350 deg, or until drops of water bounce
when dropped on the griddle. (For griddles without temperature control,
keep heat between low and medium). Drop heaping T of batter on the griddle
and spread with the back of a spoon to about 4 in. wide and 1/8 in. thick.
Cook until edges are slightly brown & cookies can be easily lifted from
griddle with a spatula, 5 - 8 min. (If cookies stick, bottoms need to be
cooked a little longer). Turn cookies carefully & cook other side until
light brown. Be careful to keep temperature even. Place fortune paper on
cookie as soon as it is removed from the griddle. Folding is easier to do
than to describe, but the end result is shaped like a horseshoe. Fold
opposite edges together, forming a semicircle. Crease crosswise at the
center of the straight edge to form a flattened side, then bend the
opposing corners together for the traditional shape. Set in a small glass
or muffin tin until cookie cools and holds its shape.Wipe griddle & stir
batter. Repeat.
