Homemade Fortune Cookies

This past weekend was a major convergence of holidays and celebrations: Valentine's Day; Chinese New Year; President's Day. Today is my husband's birthday. How do you roll all those celebrations in to one? Homemade fortune cookies!

I followed the directions posted by Brandy at The Prudent Homemaker. My messages included love notes, birthday greetings, New Year wishes, and quotes from past Presidents. Brandy's directions are great. Make sure to spread the batter out thin and don't let the edges get too brown or they won't stick together. I definitely recommend working only 2 at a time! Do not cut down on the sugar -- that is what makes them stick!

This was super easy (just a tad repetitive, but I find repetition somewhat soothing) and I made them with two small kids underfoot.

Homemade fortune cookies definitely work for me!
