Hello, I'm Daria Arlem with Lady Fortunes Gourmet Cookie Company. And I'm here to show you how to fold your very own fortune cookies. Folding fortune cookie is really the trickiest part about making this cookie. But, once you get it, once you get the hang of it, it's like riding a bike; you're not going to, you know, it's going to be easy and you're going to think, "Oh, my God, how did I not know how to do this before?" So, what we have is we have a fondant roller, but you can use a rolling pin. I really recommend getting something like that because it's going to help you maneuver the shape of the fortune cookie and just kind of coaxes it in shape to get that traditional fortune cookie look. It's a lot easier also than just cracking it over a bowl which is I know a method that a lot of people use. We've got our fortune already premade here.Your fortune is going to be going along the side of the rolling pin. So, you're going to have the fortune staying right over here, you're going to put your cookie here and you're going to put the fortune. This happens in a blink of an eye; again, this is about practice and you know, practice makes perfect, it's just you know, if at first you don't succeed, try, try again. We've got our fortune cookie that is baking right over here. We're going to go ahead and check it right now, make sure that the other side is brown. Okay. As you can see, it's very pliable and that's exactly what we're looking for. We're going to take that fortune cookie, we're going to put it over the rolling pin and see how it makes a nice. Then, we're going to bring the two edges together. Now, I'm making this one soft on purpose. You can make it more crispy; I'm making this one soft on purpose so I have more, more room to play with. But, there you have it. And there's your beautifully formed fortune cookie. Now, you can pretty much close the legs or open the legs. I like keeping them open so people can see the fortune inside and they can even pull it out after that's done. But, that's pretty much your shape. Now, what we do is we just put your fortune cookie into a little; you, you can use egg cartons, you can use a little, you know, muffin tin or a cupcake tin,; I use silicone here 'cause this gives it a nice place just to rest. And there you have it, your very own fortune cookies. If you want more ideas on making fortune cookies and dipping and decorating them as well, please go to That's lady fortunes, with an s dot com.
