In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I foundedÂ The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.View all articles by Scott Adams
This recipe comes to us from Jay Perlman.
Yield: 12 cookies.
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons corn oil
2 tablespoons water
¼ cup cornstarch
Have fortunes prepared in advance. Beat egg on low speed until frothy. Beat in sugar, a little at a time, and 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 in a heavy, well seasoned griddle to 350F, or until drops of water bounce when dropped on the griddle (For griddles without temperature control, keep heat between low and medium), Drop heaping tablespoon of batter on the griddle and spread with the back of a spoon to about 4 inches wide and 1/8 inch thick. Cook until edges are slightly brown and cookies can be easily lifted from griddle with a spatula—about 5 to 8 minutes.. If they stick the bottoms need to cooked a little longer. Turn and cook the 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 and stir batter. Repeat.
Good luck. Be careful, I think I burned my finger a few times but they are great.
