In the spirit of the Spring Festival we made Fortune Cookies with my Mom & Tot group.
You may be surprised but Fortune Cookies are not native to China itself. They were made up by the early immigrants from China to the United States. They are usually given at the end of the meal in Chinese restaurants in the USA, the person breaks them and finds a message that contains a prediction or a good luck wish.
To make it more appealing to children we used the basic recipe for sugar cookies . Parents helped children write the wishes and they put them into the cookies.
We baked them and exchanged! They were yummy and we got to read out loud the wishes for the upcoming Spring Festival!
