Sweet Fortune Cookies

Chilled 9-inch piecrust Cornstarch 3-inch-wide round cookie cutter or drinking glass Rolling pin or glass. Nontoxic marker or simply type up your fortunes and print them out Slips of paper Water Colored sugar Cookie sheet

1. Lay a chilled 9-inch piecrust on a cornstarch-dusted surface. Cut out 3-inch-wide circles with a round cookie cutter or drinking glass. To use all the dough, roll out the scraps with a pin or a cornstarch-dusted glass.

2. Use a nontoxic marker to write fortunes on slips of paper and place one in the center of each dough circle. Fold the circle in half, then pinch and fold the ends together, as shown.

3. Brush the top of each cookie with water, then sprinkle on colored sugar. Place the cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet about an inch apart, sugar side up. Bake them until lightly browned, about 20 minutes, and let them cool before removing them from the pan. Makes about 16 cookies.
