Would not make this again.
I do not recommend this recipe!! My daughter's class is studying China. She had to make Chinese Fortune Cookies from scratch. It was a disaster. After 20 minutes at 300, you will have 6 hard brown frizbees. After 10 minutes at 300, you will have soft cookies that crack in half as soon as you fold them. At 5 mintes (can you tell, I tried my best to figure out the right timing?) the cookies still broke when being folded. After wasting my time and raw materials, at 8:45pm at night, I had to go to a Chinese restaurant to buy them. For $3.60, it was a much better value than making from scratch and I actually had 3 dozen, nicely wrapped, perfect cookies when I got back home. Something is wrong with this recipe. 1 star
