Has anyone ever made fortune cookies and if so do you have a recipe to share or any tips that might be helpful for a novice?

Yes Id love to know too, I buy them as they are a really cute and fun thing to have but how cool would it be to customise whats in them...

My mum used to make a cheat's version using pre-rolled short sweet pastry - not really fortune cookies at all but they were yummy, easy and fun.

Not really a proper answer but a good shortcut for certain audiences! :-)

I have! They are such fun. The recipe is basically a tuille mixture - egg white, icing sugar and a little flour etc. You fold them in half (with typed fortune inside) then bend them over the edge of a glass. Leave to cool. They do go soft though and when I made them once as part of an icebreaker with clues inside, I noticed heaps of uneaten cookies on the tables, A little disappointing as they take ages to make.

I could pull out some storage boxes and find the exact recipe if you like - it came from the Australian Women's weekly a lot of years ago!

twist into tortellini style shape
put individually into muffin tins

Ahh good idea Lynley.

Mine were actually pretty good although they didn't cope with the February humidity and lost their crunch by the next day.
