I love those.
I have to admit that I tried on the gold ones at American Apparel.
(my school colours are green and gold)

And my mom once sewed through her finger. It was pretty gruesome, just make sure that you clean it out really well. Smiley

okay ive made tons of fortune cookies before... and the trick is: use a griddle on the stove top. you get even golding and have complete control of cooking time. also its a shorter distance to move them for quicker folding. try it!
and using the edge of a cup for the second fold also helps. let them cool in cupcake tins to retain shape.

I would have never thought of using a griddle. I will try that next time.

The recipe suggested using a cup, but I wasn't completely sure what they meant.

Okay so now I have completely changed my stand on fortune cookies.
I have some tricks.

Don't wait until they are brown (that makes the edges WAY too crunchy and therefore too hard to fold)

3 inches in diameter is too big. make smaller and they turn out better.

Don't flip them over they look prettier and don't split as easily because the bottom is harder.

wait until they are slightly brown around the edges and then take them out one by one, leaving the rest in the oven, this guarantees that they won't get too cold to fold. Smiley

my messy oven


many failed attempts


The five that turned out right


My fav. The little one  Cheesy

The little one doesn't have a fortune in it cause it was too small. But the other successful ones do Smiley

okay so I am currently cooking them
first off I think my oven is too hot.
and second I started to fold them the wrong way.

Mine are also REALLY sweet.
and i had the problem of them rising a little in the middle. Did this happen with your recipe?
I think that I have to make them smaller then 3 inches, cause mine grow too.

Okay the oven is calling me back.

The recipe is only for 6. Because where I go it it recomended only making a few so that you would have time to fold them all before they cooled too much. Mine also says to flip them over when you are forming them (curious)

    *   1 egg white
    * 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
    * 1 pinch salt
    * 1/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
    * 1/4 cup white sugar

1. Preheat oven to 400o, Write the fortunes down. Generously grease
    2 cookie sheets.

2.Mix the egg white and vanilla until foamy but not stiff. Sift the flour, salt, and 
   sugar and blend into the egg white mixture.

3.Place teaspoonfuls of the batter at least 4 inches apart on one of the prepared
  cookie sheets. Tilt the sheet to move the batter into round shapes about 3
  inches in diameter. Be careful to make batter as round and even as possible. Do
  not make too many, because the cookie have to be really hot to form them and
  once they cool it is too late. Start with 2 or 3 to a sheet and see how many
  you can do.

4.Bake for 5 minutes or until cookie has turned a golden color 1/2 inch wide
  around the outer edge of the circle. The center will remain pale. While one
  sheet is baking, prepare the other.

5.Remove from oven and quickly move cookie with a wide spatula and place
  upside down on a wooden board. Quickly place the fortune on the cookie, close
  to the middle and fold the cookie in half, then pull the ends together bending in
  half again. quickly place the cookie in a muffin tin and continue with the others.

I think that I am going to try to make them right now.
But what to put as a fortune??

haha in case you screw up on the fortune?? Tongue

That recipe looks a little more complicated then the one that I have.. but may be better.
I think I might try both Smiley
thanks
