Using a spoon, place small dollops of the batter onto your cookie sheet and spread them into 3″ or 4″ circles. The thinner and more round you make the circles, the better your cookies will turn out. Make sure your cookies don’t touch one another. You can probably do about 3 cookies per batch but they cook really fast.
When your oven hits 400 degrees place your first batch in the oven and bake for about 6 minutes, watching them through your oven window to make sure they don’t burn.
Take your cookies out and, using a spatula, place one on a non-stick surface. As quickly as you can, place a fortune in the center and fold your cookie in half but don’t press it flat. Leaving a little bit of air in the middle, bend your already folded cookie in half the other way to create the classic fortune cookie shape. Place your folded cookie into a cup or a small bowl to help it keep its shape until it hardens.
