Homemade Fortune Cookies & Free Printable

Do you like to celebrate the Chinese New Year??  Did you know that it’s the year of the horse for 2014? Are you born in the year of the horse?  I’m actually the year of the Dragon – so this is not my year.  But that isn’t keeping me from having a little fun & celebrating anyway.  I decided to try my hand at making fortune cookies from scratch.  That was so much fun.

    How FUN!! I would love to make these. Some years ago when I was teaching English, I used this idea several times as a writing assignment for Chinese New Year: I gave each student three fortune cookies and asked them to enjoy the cookies, then choose their favorite one and expand on it in an essay, using a particular essay form — either descriptive, cause & effect, classification, narrative, compare/contrast, persuasive, etc. They loved it! Now, if I had just been able to make the cookies!

    I have thought to try this but didn’t think there would be a real recipe to follow I thought I’d be winging it. We like Chinese takeout and we always read our fortune cookies with a laugh(we’re not superstitious) I made a joke on April Fool’s Day that it would be funny to have fortune cookies with really crappy stuff printed in them..I think your uplifting quotes are much better..lol. Thanks for sharing.

    Adorable! I love Chinese food, and we enjoyed celebrating Chinese New Year when we lived in Thailand…as many of the Thais are Chinese descendants. We loved going out for Dim Sum on weekends, and the interesting big Chinese meals other times. I miss those days, so much!
