My Personal Craze Over Chinese Fortune Cookies

I have always loved Chinese fortune cookies ever since I was a child. I think this personal craze I have developed has to do more with the associations I have with them than with their actual flavor. My parents used to bring me to Chinese restaurants then and how I love everything about it. Oh how I loved the little ornamental lamps, the murals with dragons and warriors on them as well as the Buddhist statues decorated around the place! Above all, I loved the food. I loved everything from cashew chicken, almond boneless chicken to sweet and sour pork dishes. In fact, I would virtually eat everything that’s on the Chinese restaurant menu.

Another thing that I love about when dining in Chinese restaurants is the Chinese fortune cookies they usually served. For me, it’s a perfect end to a perfect dining experience. There’s just something that’s so satisfying about them. It is made in bite-sized and though it wasn’t really especially delicious, there was at least some sort of fortune that comes with it. Every Chinese fortune cookie basically comes with a message stuffed inside it. Sometimes the messages it brings may seem oddly prescient. Overall, it was all in good fun, and perhaps much tastier than an astrology reading!

I didn’t realized until later that Chinese fortune cookies comes in a variety of alternatives. Only then when I was already an adult that I get to occasionally discover Chinese cookies in some restaurants that are quite disappointing. At times, they are stale and at other times, they are mediocre at best. Searching further, I found chocolate-dipped fortune cookies. There is even a store where you can get your fortune own personalized cookies printed. Now, this makes a good present to your loved ones. I have even come across one website that sells giant fortune cookies. I think that’s enough to get even the most jaded and cynical consumers interested about Chinese food.

One of my friends presented to me a make-your-own Chinese fortune cookies website. There, one can get some innovative ways in making Chinese fortune cookies with your own personal touch. From this, I have come up with a plan to try it myself. I took a look at the recipe, and found myself astounded at how easy it is to make. I actually had assumed it would be difficult, since somehow you have to bake the cookies and manage to stuff the fortunes inside. Now, it doesn’t look like it is going to be nearly as hard as I had anticipated, and I’m excited to serving the outcomes up to some of my good friends and perhaps to my family as well.
