Make your own fortune cookies and write your own fortunes! Great idea for parties or Chinese New Year!
Something else. I strongly recommend adding 2 tablespoons of butter to the batter or they will stick to the tray. Also, we had to thin it out a bit with a tiny bit of water. I added both vanilla and almond extact, and reduced the sugar to 2 T a batch. I made over 100 of these for a wedding. We had best results by making no more than 4 at a time and cooling in a muffin tin. Also, the cookies were just not crunchy enough for my liking. - 21 Jul 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. I used some of the suggestions from prior reviewers. These cookies actually come out better than expected. I used 2Tbsp of sugar instead of the 4. I also added 1/8 tsp almond extract. I folded them in half on a cutting board, bent them on the rim of a mug and then let them cool in the tin as suggested. Be careful if you are going to try to crisp the cookies by reheating them. When they warm up again, they begin to unfold. Perhaps leaving the cookies in the muffin tin would help keep their shape. - 21 Jul 2008
I absolutely love this recipe. The key to this recipe is to make sure you make each circle VERY thin before baking to prevent a soft pancake-like centre. Follow the rest of the directions closely and you will have successful fortune cookies for your special event! - 21 Jul 2008
