Looking for a unique way to "Pop the Question"? Then you have to try this foolproof fortune cookie recipe. (cookie recipe inspired by mom's who think.com)  While I can't guarantee you'll get a "yes", I can guarantee you'll put a smile on your partner's face. 

This recipe make 8-10 cookies so you'll have plenty of opportunity to make the perfect one. 

I opted to bake the ring into the cookie but you can also present the ring separately.

Good Luck!

Is the canola oil for the batter or greasing the sheet?

This is a great idea... as long as your future fiance doesn't just bite in to fortune cookies like I do!

How funny! I always go straight for the fortune. I didn't even think about someone biting into the cookie first.

Nice. I did this about 10 years ago. Just a plain cookie. I brought it with us to our favorite Thai restaurant and switched it with the real one when she wasn't looking. It worked :)

Neat idea for a romantic proposal..

While a mans hand delivers the goods,
it is a female hand making the cookies :-)

Thanks!

Women proposals aren't so unheard of these days, but my goal is definitely to have some men give it a whirl. ;)
