Indiana Fortune Cookies

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 636
Yield: 60 fortune cookies


3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
60 intriguing fortunes written on small strips of paper


In a mixing bowl combine butter and sugar until fluffy. Add vanilla. Then add eggs to mixture, one at a time. Beat well after adding each egg. Then add flour and beat thoroughly. Heat oven to 375°. Grease cookie sheets, then dust lightly with flour. Drop rounded teaspoons of dough at least 2 inches apart on each sheet. Bake 20 minutes and remove. With a wide spatula, loosen each cookie from sheet. Place a folded fortune on each cookie. Gently fold cookies in half with fortune inside. Pinch edges together, then twist in the centers.

Note: While putting a fortune inside each cookie, keep the cookie sheet warm. This will make the cookies easier to work with.
