A few weeks ago, I attempted to make fortune cookies from scratch. Lets just say they didn't turn out...not even remotely close :-(. It's always a bummer when your ideas don't pan out the way you imagined. THEN I decided to take an easier route, and instead of making them from scratch...I used pre-made pie crust!!! (always my saving grace haha)
You will need:
-pre-made pie crust
-red food coloring
-cup of water
-small strips of paper with your fortunes typed or written
First, spread a little flour on the surface of your cutting board, just so the crust doesn't stick...
Next, lay out your crust and take your cup to cut out as many circles as you'd like.
Then lay them all onto your 11x17 pan, (if you're wanting them to be colorful, skip down a few steps)
Then you simply seal them up and close the edges nice and tight...
For the red cookies, I placed two drops of food coloring onto the dough and spread it with the brush. I let it dry for about five minutes...then put the fortune inside, and sealed them like I did the others. If you don't want any color, then just brush on some water and add your sprinkles!
I then placed them on the edge of a cup so that they would fold nicely. :-)

p.s. I've gotten a few emails from people who mentioned that they're having trouble entering the giveaway. Thanks to my friend Ashley (who figured it out!) you have to go down to the bottom of the entry page and click "load more" and than you will be able to find your comment. For some reason it just doesn't display ALL of the comments at once... Sorry about that...I'll admit it's slightly annoying?!
