Pie Crust Fortune Cookies

Piecrust coverI know that I haven’t been posting for a LONG time but this next post (Pie Crust Fortune Cookies) is really cool!Fortune-Cookies-01First thing, before you start the recipe, what are fortune cookies without fortunes? What you need is to cut paper into 2 inch strips and write special fortunes for the people you’re giving them to or just write happy fortunes if it’s random picking. One more thing you can do if you can’t think of fortunes, just write symbols like hearts, suns, moons, flowers, etc.Fortune-Cookies-07What you also need is: colored sprinkles, (the crunchy kind) pie dough or any other flat dough, a circle cookie cutter, fortunes (you just made), and instructions if you printed them out.

Fortune-Cookies-11First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.Then you sift some flour onto your working space.Fortune-Cookies-12Next, you put your dough on the sifted flour and sprinkle flour on top.Fortune-Cookies-16Then, you use your circle cookie cutter and make as many (reusing the dough scraps) as you can.

Tip: If you can’t cut the dough, try pushing harder.

Fortune-Cookies-17Next, you put a fortune in a circle and fold it in half.Fortune-Cookies-18Fold again into a quarter.Fortune-Cookies-20Repeat the last two steps with all your circles.

Fortune-Cookies-21 Fortune-Cookies-22Then, you put the dough on a cookie sheet. brush each cookie with a bit of water and sprinkle 1 color on each cookie.

Tip: Try to put on the sprinkles fast before the water dries. If it does, keep the water out and brush it again.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until light brown. Carefully take them out of the oven and let them cool for 5 minutes before taking them off the pan.Fortune-Cookies-27And there you have it!  Your very own fortune cookies!  Give them to your friends or have a party!

I got this recipe from a book at Barnes & Noble and it’s called Pink Princess Cookbook by Barbara Beery.
