The other day, I took a shot at creating my own takeout from home. I think I executed it flawlessly, but there was one challenge that I had to overcome to fully execute my plan – how to make fortune cookies! That’s when I learned how easy they are to make them and surprisingly use some pretty basic ingredients that I already had around the house.
Before you actually make the cookies, you’ll need to print out some custom fortunes. I made some fun ones for my husband and kids and couldn’t wait to see their faces when they opened them. Here were some examples:

wife will bring you good fortune.”[/ezcol_1half_end]
[ezcol_1half]”Always listen to your mother.”[/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end]”Always listen to your wife.”[/ezcol_1half_end]
[ezcol_1half]”Your wife thinks you’re hot.”[/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end]”Your mother thinks you’re awesome”[/ezcol_1half_end]
