Homemade Cookies Tip

easy fortune cookie recipe
~ Try and make only 2 chinese fortune cookies at a time,
until you have really practiced and got speedier at folding because when you take the fortune cookies out of the oven within 20 seconds the cookies become really hard and you will no longer be able to bend them
~ Preheat the oven so that you have an even temperature of heat oven to 425 degrees.
~ It might help to wear some gloves or use some cooking tweezers to pick up the fortune cookies as they tend to be very hot - adult supervision is definetly required with this kid recipe.
~ For special occasion the Big Fortune Cookie or even a Giant Fortune Cookie - it could be a real treat as a special occasion birthday fortune cookie or wedding fortune cookie
