    Charlotte J's Note:

    Going with an oriental meal tonight? End it with your own homemade fortune cookie. Could you ever let your imitation go with writing out "fortunes" for everyone. One for my daughter " I see a clean your room in your future".

      The cookies have a great taste but don't taste or look exactly like fortune cookies. They are close though and taste very good. I tried wrapping a few first and had some trouble but I found a method after that and cooked about six at a time. The folding is the hardest part of this recipe but anyone should be able to do it.

      These where actually really easy to make. Calling them fortune cookies on the other hand.... They definately taste good, but they tasted more like butter cookies (really rich and a tad too sweet for my taste) but overall they where much liked by friends.

      the cookies tasted nothing like a fortune cookie, more like a sugar cookie. i found them too much of a hassle to make since it did not have the desired taste
