Chinese Fortune Cookies as American as Apple Pie

Based on my extensive research of Chinese history, tradition and culture (i.e. watching a lot of kung fu movies), I now know that the Chinese fortune cookies are not an Asian invention, but rather an American one. There was a story circulated about rebels in the 13th or 14th century, using them to pass secret messages to each other about their war plans to overthrow the Mongols. Pure fiction. But you must admit that plot sure has the makings of an epic saga.

Alas!  The truth is the Chinese fortune cookie is as American as apple pie; and they make great party favors.

Would you like to make your own homemade fortune cookies?

Well you can. This Sunbeam kitchen accessory is a must have.
