Easy to bake Fortune Cookie Recipes make them in your own kitchen.
Instead of buying, make your own Fortune Cookies at home. With a little practice they will soon look like bought ones.
My husband (Neil) and sister (Tina) have baked all the recipes on this site. Neither of them are professional chefs nor cooks :-) and so we figure, if the recipes worked for them they are sure to work for you too.
Before you begin cooking, make sure you read their Tips on how best to use these fortune cookie recipes.

Cookie Cutter Fortune Cookie Recipe
fortunes, cut up and ready to insert.
1 cup (220g) soft butter
½ cup sugar
2½ tsp vanilla extract
3¼ cup flour (plain flour)
½ tsp baking powder
Pre-heat Oven to moderate 425oF (220oC).
Beat butter, egg and sugar until smooth.
Add other ingredients and mix to form a smooth dough.
Lightly flour a board or flat surface.
Using half the dough (keep other half covered to avoid drying out) roll out with a rolling pin.
Roll out till it is very thin less than 1/8th inch thick.
Use a large circle cookie cutter to cut out circles.
Place a written fortune on top of each cookie.
Fold each cookie in half and then in half again. Pinch to close around edge.
Bake in oven for about 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
Should make about 25 cookies.
Neil - Easier to make than the others, but ...
Tina- Yeah, easier to bake, but ...
Lisa - ... but we all agreed they were no where near as good. They were not a wafer type cookie at all. All three of us we disappointed and agreed we would not make these again.
