Add a twist to the game and lure your friends in with tasty fortune cookies.
You have to fold your cookies when the dough is at exactly the right temperature. Keep a good eye on them as they cook and when they first start to turn golden at the edges, pull them out and fold them right away.

Dear Ukers...a cup is an actual measurement used mostly in the US and you can find out how many grams are in one by googling it. Tis very confusing when you don't know. You can buy measuring cups over here Happy
