My family and I really liked the flavor and while they may not be simple to shape, it is doable. I used to have a great fortune cookie stovetop recipe and tried making these on the stove- nope! They turn out like pancakes. So my tips would be that you need a very hot oven, make sure your baking sheet has some oil or pam because these things are so thin, they will STICK. Also, keep a close eye while baking because they can turn from just done to dark brown/black in a second. When smoothing in the pan before baking, make sure they are almost see-through thin and try to make them as perfectly round as possible and that will help you when shaping the cookie after baking. My reason for not giving 5 stars is the color. They never turn out a nice, even golden color. They are either dark brown OR pale in the center w/ dark brown edges. I know ovens can be to blame, but most any other recipe turns out perfectly in mine, so I wanna say something is lacking in the original recipe. It is a tricky recipe, mostly the shaping part. And yes, work with maximum 3 at a time because they set fast. If the cookies are coming out bad enough to be a Pinterest Fail, I recommend rolling them up like little taquitos, they can still hold the fortune paper well and still look nice.
