We made fortune cookies today.
Thanks to Mrs. Longland for the recipe.
She makes them with her grade 2 class every year.
The children are becoming familiar with cooking at the
They wait their turn and are starting to be able to predict
when their turn is next.
Their patience is growing.
Once the batter was mixed the children and their grown ups wrote fortunes
– good wishes –
on the little pieces of paper.
Time to cook.
Scoop the batter with a tablespoon.
Use the back of the spoon to spread it thin in the pan.
When the edges are brown flip it.
As soon as you remove the cookie from the heat,
place the fortune on it and fold in half then half again.
They will become crispy as they cool.
It may take some adjustment of the heat to get it right
but once you do they don’t take long to cook.
Thanks to my volunteers for cooking.
Time to crack them open, read the fortune and enjoy the cookie.
Happy thoughts your way.
The recipe for you to try.
