Expert Tips

Make your own fortunes using vellum paper on your computer, then cut into strips, or save fortunes from Chinese takeout to reuse.

Simple syrup can be substituted for the vanilla-water mixture.

For a sweeter fortune cookie, sprinkle the dough rounds with sugar before shaping.

When cutting the dough rounds, use a measuring cup for measuring dry ingredients, rather than one for measuring liquids.
