The fortune cookie is a thin, crispy cookie folded around a small strip of paper with a philosophical message or corny joke on it. They are usually served at the end of a Chinese meal but were actually invented in Japan where the fortune was tucked neatly on the outside of the cookie. The cookie made its way to America in the 1800’s and exploded in popularity during World War 2. Celebrate the fortune cookie by learning how to make your own! If cooking isn’t your thing, you can try making some out of origami paper.
