Step 7: Place on Cookie Sheet

The cookies will have to be folded quickly after being removed from the oven, so it is a good idea to try only one cookie the first time and then only 4 or so at a time once you are better at it.

1) Put approximately 1 Tbs of batter onto the cookie sheet.

2) Using the back of the spoon, spread the batter into a circle approximately 3-4 inches in diameter.
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.
