To celebrate the end of Chinese New Year, mom made me some Fortune Cookies.
First, Where did fortune cookies originate?
I can tell you it did not originate from China but in California, USA.
There’s no official documentation who really invented the fortune cookie.
Many say it started by a Japanese immigrant who placed thank you notes inside a cookie.
What is a fortune cookie?
A cookie served after a Chinese meal and fortune message hidden inside.
What is it made of?
A cookie made with simple ingredients such as flour, sugar, oil and flavoring (vanilla).
Mom made a Doggie Fortune Cookie that I can eat.
Instead of a fortune, she placed a message in each of the cookies.
She made these Fortune Cookies with
1/3 cup of flour, 2 teaspoon of potato flour, 1 tablespoon of oil, for flavoring: blueberry syrup
( heated some fresh blueberries and mixed it with the flour, it also gives color)
From the dough, mom was able to make ~8pieces.
It’s a process, broken into 2 parts.
The 1st part needs to be done in a quick manner …
you have to bake a small flat piece of dough for about 2 minutes.
As soon as you take it our from the oven (its HOT),
place the message inside then fold the dough in half.
Bend it again from the middle. Set it aside.
Repeat the process with the rest of the hot dough. Once the cookies are formed baked it for another 20 to 30 minutes and/or until it is brown and crisp.
Mom asked me to select a cookie to eat … did you see the message inside the cookie,
