Would not make this again.
I tried this as well as several other fortune cookie recipes on the web and found none of them any good. I am an experienced baker and found the batter to be a total mess. I finally found an excellent recipe in "The Good Cookie" by Tish Boyle that called for refrigerating the dough for 8 hours and then spreading with a spatula onto parchment paper. This recipe worked beautifully and I didn't have a single lost cookie. 1 star
