We all try to look into the future - in jest or in earnest. If you like to guess, then you and your friends will surely love the unique recipe - cookies with predictions. It is a simple pastry, inside which is placed a piece of paper with recorded wishes. What prediction will fall out, such an event and awaits ahead - will we know our future?
Take care of the future
First you need to decide what to write on the paper with the wishes. Take a piece of paper and cut it into 48 thin strips. Of course, you may not have as many cookies, so do not rush to fill all the strips. The inscription should be a printer printout: after baking products, ink of a ballpoint pen often turns into unreadable.
Now sit down and write down any wishes that come to your mind. But this should be done in a veiled, implicit form, for example: "Do wonders yourself", "Behind the turn you will prosper", etc. Do not write anything bad: you are preparing cookies for your loved ones, so do not put obstacles in their life even as a joke.
When the labels are ready, you can proceed to the preparation of baking.
