Ingredients:  
1/4 c Flour
2 T Brown Sugar
1 T Corn Starch
Dash of Salt

1/4 t Vanilla or Lemon Flavoring

8 to 10 Paper "Fortune" Strips, either typed our or cut from magazines.

Directions:
Directions:
Combine flour, sugar, cornstarch and salt. Stir in oil and fold in egg white until mixture is smooth. Add flavoring and water and mix well. In a small skillet, pour one tablespoon of batter, spreading it to a 3 inch circle. Cook for 4 minutes or till lightly browned, turn with a spatula and cook for one more minute. Batter will turn from beige to brown. Remove from griddle and quickly place "fortune" paper in the center of the circle. Fold in half over the edges of a glass, and then in half again. Hold for a few seconds until cool, then place in an empty egg carton to help cookie keep its shape. These get better with practice. This recipe makes 8-10 fortune cookies. If they do not seem crisp enough for you, toast them in the oven at 300 degrees for 10 minutes, or just let them 'sit around' a few days.
