Your fortune in a Cookie~

Many fortunate individuals were given these pretty fortune cookies as an invite to Artem and I's joint 21st Birthday party this weekend. We decided to throw a party in between our original birth dates to ease sky-high party costs and many dreadful days of planning an extravagant party on our own. I got him over to help make these fortune cookies as they were pretty complicated and impossible to make with just 2 hands! Here's the recipe for the cookies and a short video on how they were done. Remember to handle them when they're piping hot; they need to be shaped straight out of the oven! They become brittle and crack when they cool -- takes them about 2 seconds to do that *sigh* It'll probably take you a couple of broken cookies and burning fingertips; but practice makes perfect ;) so preservere! *laughs* Wear thin cotton gloves if you must....I personally feel the material just gets in the way *shrug*

haha thanks xenia
helen: my friends were amused with the idea...the only issue was the length of the "fortune" I didn't have enough space for my address/phone number; jsut the main details of the party. I guess I should have made a larger cookie
