    CA. Yeah, I know...
    This is the recipe I followed before, but I added a small amount of sesame seeds for variety: http://hicards.com/pagesc/fcrecipe.html

    INGREDIENTS:
    8 oz . flour
    2 tablespoons cornstarch
    4 ounces sugar
    1/2 teaspoons salt
    2 egg whites
    4 ounces vegetable oil
    1 teaspoon water
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract

    Preheat the oven to 300F.

    DIRECTIONS:
    In a large bowl, sift together the flour, cornstarch, sugar, and salt. Stir in the oil, egg whites, water, and vanilla. On a well-greased baking sheet, roll a very thin 4-inch circle of dough and bake for 15 minutes or until golden.

    Remove one cookie at a time from the oven with a wide spatula; working quickly follow these four steps:
    1. Flip cookie onto cotton gloved hand.
    2. Hold fortune in center of pliable cookie while folding cookie in half.
    3. Grasp ends of cookie and draw gently down over edge of muffin pan to crease at center of cookie.
    4. Fit cookie in muffin pan (points down) to hold shape as it cools. If cookie hardens too quickly, put it back in the oven for about 1 minute.


    Folding them into shape is more trouble than it's worth IMO. Unless you want to put a special message inside, I say eat `em round. ;c ;c
