Getting Ready For The New Year

According to Steph's Justin Bieber calendar, Monday is the Chinese New Year.

"Oh my God can we make fortune cookies?"

Sure. What better way to bring on the Chinese New Year than to make a cookie characterized as "introduced by the Japanese, popularized by the Chinese, and consumed by Americans."

Pouring a circle of batter.

Adding the fortune before folding.

A glass is useful for the final fold.

Voila! Notice the cookie in the top right. Steph calls it the platypus cookie. When you remove the cookie from the sheet, it's very hot. You have to fold it quickly before it cools. I managed to fold it in half all the while feeling like my fingertips were burning off so it didn't make it to the final fold. By the way, these homemade cookies are very tasty, far better than the ones served in a restaurant.
