Recipe Type: Baking
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • l egg
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons corn oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
Instructions
  1. Preheat a pancake griddle. A constant 350 degrees works best. Think: drops of water bounce when dropped on the surface.
  2. Beat egg until frothy then add in sugar, a little at a time. Beat until mixture is a light yellow and thick. Fold in corn oil. Mix water and a teaspoon of the egg mixture into cornstarch. Stir everything together.
  3. Drop rounded tablespoon of batter on the griddle and spread with a spoon to the size of a cd. You want the batter evenly thick. Cook both sides until edges brown and can be lifted with a spatula, about 5-ish minutes. If they stick, they need to cook longer.
  4. Remove from the griddle, place your fortune (prepared in advance) on cookie and fold.
  5. To fold: Fold opposite edges together into a semicircle. Keep the curved side toward your finger tips, gently pinch with thumbs on top, and move your palms together to bend the cookie into its traditional shape. Set in a muffin tin to cool.
Notes
It’s helpful to have someone on the griddle and another folding the cookies. I also add about a ¼ teaspoon of almond extract so it tastes super yummy!

  1. Start by adding 1 tablespoon of water and oil to the mix. Slowly add more to for the right consistency. If you use too much, add additional sugar and cornstarch.

  2. I made a double recipe this morning. They were super easy and turned out great!!! Can’t wait to share them. Also, 1 recipe makes 12 fortune cookies!
