The dreamy cookies I thought I was making.
My pantry and fridge ingredients are sorely limited due to my upcoming departure for France (2 and a half weeks!), so I settled upon a fortune cookie recipe that I had pinned several months ago. It only called for five ingredients and a little creativity. The instructions didn't appear very hard, and the results looked fun and delicious. (For my full review of the recipe, check out my guest post on my mom's blog Me and Pinterest.)
For the fortunes, I found inspiration on my "Truths!" board (basically motivational quotes that I like). I copied the "fortunes" onto little strips of paper using a purple pen. The tiny detail of the purple ink is important.

My favorite one is at the very top:
"Keep calm and sing Soft Kitty."
I flattened small circles of batter onto the cookie sheet and put then in the oven for 5 minutes.
I promptly fortuned, folded, and pinched in the allotted 30 seconds.

|If you can't read the fortune, it says, "life is to important to be taken seriously."|
Very fitting for this culinary failure! :)
I'm counting this as Pinterest recipe number 5 for my [25 before 25] list. Go check out my Food board on Pinterest and let me know what I should make next! Also, if you have a fortune cookie recipe that actually works, send it my way!
