Make Your Own Fortune Cookies
[Editor's Note: There are certain foods that I rarely give any thought to their origin. Fortune cookies are one of those foodsthey 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]
Pastry Origami: Fortune Cookies
When one of our friends stated that she and her husband planned to have a garden party to reveal their new Chinese Gardena project that had been two years in the making involving lots of heavy equipment, talented artists, and a research trip to Chinawe decided to pitch in and help with the food. When we were told it would be for 300+ guests we balked. "No problem," we said, because we fancy ourselves both gluttons for both cookies and punishment.
