DIY Fortune Cookies!

Happy Chinese New Year!  In honor of said day, and just for fun, we made some fortune cookies.  It really isn’t hard!  If you want to join in the fun, feel free to download my DIY Fortune Cookies.  There are plenty of blank spaces to insert whatever fortune you want!  Sometimes we go for serious, mostly we go for funny!

So the recipe is super simple.  Use the back of the spoon to round out the dough – it has to be big enough for your fortune, but they do spread in the oven.

The hard part is the assembly.  The recipe makes 12-15 cookies.  Make about 3 at a time to start, but since I’m experienced (a.k.a impatient), I did 6 sloppy cookies at a time.

While the cookies bake for the brief 5 minutes, get out the gear:  spatula, muffin tin, pre-cut fortunes, and a coffee mug.

The cookies then come out…

Flip them over fast! Throw the fortune in the middle, fold it over and…

Quickly throw the crimped cookie into the awaiting muffin tin. It just serves to hold the cookie’s shape.  Now, move onto the next cookie!  Speed is of the essence!

They will be chewier than your average fortune cookie – we think they taste like Nilla wafer copycats, and thus much yummier than the cookies in the restaurants.

A perfect after school snack or dessert!
