Make Your Own Fortune Cookies

Featured BlogHer Network Post

[Editor's Note: There are certain foods that I rarely give any thought to their origin. Fortune cookies are one of those foods—they generally just arrive at the end of my Chinese meal with the bill, and I eat them and giggle at the fortune, and that's the end of it. I don't think about whether or not they could be made at home. But they could, indeed, and this tutorial explains how! --Genie]
