Fortune Cookies II8 Reviews
“They are not Chinese in origin, but the innovation of an enterprising baker in Los Angeles in the 1920's. Be sure to have cotton gloves and a muffin pan handy. And, don't forget to have all your 'fortunes' written and ready in 1/2 x 3 inch strips.” - by DeAnn Plaskett

"This is the worst recipie I have ever used. Not only are the measurements confusing (7 tablespoons oil, 1/3 cup egg whites), but the batter is mush and the oil in it seperates. They are difficult to s..." See morepread and once cooked, they are inedible. I made one to test and ended up throwing the whole batch away."
