Valentine's Fortune Cookies

Last year I posted here about these felt fortune cookies from Martha:

They are very cute and pretty easy (and you can make them with tan felt for the Chinese New Year!!) but you can't eat them. And that is just a bummer.

But these you can! And they are pretty easy! You make them with pie crust!

image from Family Fun

What you need:
Chilled 9-inch pie crust
3-inch-wide round cookie cutter or drinking glass
Rolling pin or glass.
Nontoxic marker
Slips of paper
Colored sugar
Cookie sheet

Lay a chilled 9-inch pie crust on a cornstarch-dusted surface. Cut out 3-inch-wide circles with a round cookie cutter or drinking glass. To use all the dough, roll out the scraps with a pin or a cornstarch-dusted glass.

2. Use a nontoxic marker to write fortunes on slips of paper and place one in the center of each dough circle. Fold the circle in half, then pinch and fold the ends together, as shown.

3. Brush the top of each cookie with water, then sprinkle on colored sugar. Place the cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet about an inch apart, sugar side up. Bake them until lightly browned, about 20 minutes, and let them cool before removing them from the pan. Makes about 16 cookies.

If you want to make them even yummier, instead of the sprinkles, dip them in chocolate after they have been baked! Mmmmmmmmmmm

What a good idea! This would be so as dessert with an asian meal. You could sprinkle with powdered sugar too.

Hey, two questions:

1. Where do you get the cute little take-out boxes shown in the picture?

and 2. Have you ever made the felt slippers Martha has on her site? I just put them on my blog and was curious.
