“From a Giant Food recipe card, these look really cool.

  2. Add the water and mix thoroughly-- make one cookie at a time with the following directions.
  3. Lightly oil a non-stick skillet or crepe pan. Pour on 1 tablespoon of batter and spread to a 3 1/2" circle.
  4. Cook over medium-low heat until the edges begin to turn light brown, about 2 minutes.
  5. Turn with spatula and cook 2 more minutes-- it's important to use a timer for this to cook the entire 4 minutes so that the cookies become brittle when cool.
  6. Working quickly, place cookie, smooth surface down, on a paper towel.
  7. Put the fortune pape in the center, bring up edges and pinch together using paper towel (cookie will still be hot.).
