Step 2: Get Prepared!

Preheat the oven to 350° and line a sheet tray with a silicon baking paper or parchment paper.

Step 3: Mix it Up!

Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl, mixing with a whisk. The cookie batter will be loose, that is alright.

Step 4: Scoop it Up!

Using a teaspoon, scoop cookie batter onto the cookie sheet, and flatten with a spatula. Make only 2 cookies at a time because they harden quickly – and you won’t have time to fold them if you make more than 2 at a time.

Step 5: Bake it!

Bake the cookies for 5 minutes, or as soon as the edges are starting to brown.

Step 6: Add the Fortune!

As soon as you remove the cookies from the oven, place a fortune in the center of each.

Step 7: Fold it!

Quickly fold the cookie circle in half. Be very careful, this part is for an adult only – the cookies are hot and they will burn your fingers a little bit, unfortunately this can’t be avoided.

Step 8: Fold it Again!

Then, grab the cookie by each end and fold together in the fortune cookie shape – hold it in this position for 20 seconds until it is hard.
