I've always wondered how this was done. Now, we have an answer!

It's actually quite simple. The cookies start out flat. Then the fortune is placed into the still hot cookie that is immediately folded using a special piece of metal. Once it dries, you have the fortune cookie we all know and love!

At least that's how this company does it. They actually make them ALL by hand! Amazing.

Then there's this company that has machines that do all of the work, allowing them to make millions of fortune cookies a day.
