Fortune Cookies


Fortune Cookies
A fortune cookie is a crisp and sugary cookie usually made from flour, sugar, vanilla, and sesame seed oil with a piece of paper inside, a “fortune”, on which is an aphorism, or a vague prophecy.


        1 c. margarine, softened

        ½ c. sugar

        1 egg

        2½ tsp. vanilla extract

        3¼ c. flour

        ½ tsp. baking powder.


Step 1:
Combine margarine, sugar, egg, and vanilla. Mix until smooth. Add flour and baking powder. Stir everything together to form a ball of dough.

Step 2:
Lightly flour a wooden board or flat surface. With a rolling pin, roll half of dough very thin. Use a circleshaped cookie cutter or the top of a large glass (about 2 inches wide) to cut out circles in dough. (Cut dough into other shapes, if you wish.)

Step 3:
Put a fortune in each circle, off to one side. Fold the circle in half and then in half again. Pinch edges to seal.

Step 4:
Preheat the oven to 425ºF.

Step 5:
Reroll leftover scraps of dough and make cookies from them. Then roll and make cookies from other half of dough.

Step 6:
Bake cookies for about 10 minutes or until they are lightly browned. Serve when cool.
