 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/4  cup           sifted cake flour
    2      tablespoons   sugar
    1      tablespoon    cornstarch
           dash          salt
    2      tablespoons   vegetable oil
    1                    egg white
    1      tablespoon    water
 
 Before preparing cookies, write fortunes with predictions of good health, prosp
 erity and happiness on small slips of paper.
 
 Sift together the flour, sugar, cornstarch and salt.  Add oil and egg white; st
 ir until smooth.  Add water and mix well.  Make one cookie at a time by pouring
  1 tablespoon of the batter on a lightly greased skillet or griddle.  Spread to
  a 3 1/2 inch circle.  Cook over low heat about 4 minutes or until lightly brow
 ned.  Turn with a wide spatula; cook 1 minute more.
 
 Working quickly, place cookie on a pot holder.  Put paper strip with fortune in
  the center; fold cookie in half.  Then bend folded cookie over the edge of a b
 owl to give it the “C” shape.  Place in muffin pan to cool.  Makes 8 cookies.
 
 Tip: Wear cotton gloves when handling cookies so you can shape them quickly wit
 hout getting burned.  If cookie hardens before it is shaped, put in a warm oven
  to soften.
