Step 5: Separate Eggs

If this is the first time you are separating eggs, practice while making scrambled eggs (so it doesn't matter if you mess up).

1) Gently crack the egg down the middle and pull it apart over your bowl while keeping the egg yolk in one half.

2) Pour the yolk back and forth between the eggshell halves, letting the egg whites fall into the bowl.
3) Save the egg yolks if you will use them in another recipe, if not you can throw them away.
I just made a batch of these to pass out to family members to announce my pregnancy. On the back of the fortunes announcing a baby is on it's way, I put Lucky Numbers like they do on the manufactured ones but only I put the numbers that make up the baby's due date.<br> <br> I can't wait to pass these out tonight. :) I recommend you make these one by one unless you will have someone helping you fold them asap. It helps to have the fortunes already folded in half, when I didn't fold the fortunes in half, some of the messages were visible in a few of them.<br> <br> I tried one and they taste even better than the packaged manufactured ones you get at the restaurants. I will most definitely makes these again to reveal the baby's gender rather than a gender reveal cake.
I just realized National Fortune Cookie Day was yesterday. Rats! I will be ready for next year, anyway. <br> <br>Very nice explanation on the folding. That part is very tricky for us spatially-challenged folks.
