Making fortune cookies is waay easier than you think it might be. It all starts with a batter. (I quartered this recipe.)
Spoon said batter onto a well greased cookie sheet one tablespoon at a time and then smooth it out into circles roughly 3 inches in circumference.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 5-8 minutes. While you're waiting, make some fortunes on small slips of paper.
Once the circles are golden brown, place a fortune on the bottom half and fold the cookies into a semicircle. (You remembered to take them out of the oven first, right?) Then bend into a fortune cookie shape. Work quickly. Place them into muffin cups to dry.
Look clueless and uncouth as you place the cookies in a Japanese style soup bowl for a photograph but then slightly redeem yourself by reminding everyone that fortune cookies are American in origin. Claim that it's a "melting pot", blah blah blah. You will not fool anyone, you berk. Just admit that you used the wrong bowl.
Then break open your cookie and read your fortune.
