Fortune cookies

Homemade fortune cookies in honor of the upcoming chinese new year.
I consider cooking to be a daily creation, so it makes the blog cut.
I find cooking to be a creative outlet. It fits the parameters of creating something from a few basic elements into something beautiful (sometimes!) and tasty.

We are having a dinner party on sunday for chinese new year/valentines day. Six friends are coming over for a full on asian multi course meal. To some, cooking is a chore. But to us, it is fun.

When we planned this dinner, we thought it would be a blast to make fortune cookies and stuff them with funny fortunes. here is the result. they are not perfect, but they taste really good--way better than your average take out. These have ground almonds--actually more ground almonds than flour. so, surely they are healthy:)
We have some extras here, so that guests will get the luck of the draw.
These are not for the faint hearted. Afterall, it is going to be the year of the Tiger...
