Homemade Fortune Cookie Favors

Fortune cookie wedding favors - how seriously do we take these popular words of wealth and wisdom? Approximately 3 billion fortune cookies are made each year, and the vast majority of them ready to be served at your favorite Chinese restaurant here in the United States. Americans love good news, especially if it sounds like “You will inherit a large sum of money.” And how about the one that would have come in handy during my teenaged years, "Reach for the high apples (boys) first you can get the low ones any time." You may not believe the magic in these lovely little messages but I've never seen one left unopened. Here's a helpful tutorial on how to make your own fortune cookies.
