  5. Pour or spoon 1 TBS. of batter onto prepared silpat and spread with the back of a spoon into a very thin 4" circle. Repeat on the other half of the sheet , making only 2 cookies per sheet tray.
  6. Bake the on the middle rack of oven until golden brown around the edges , about 8 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and work VERY QUICKLY , with an offset spatula , remove cookie from baking sheet and place a fortune in the center of the round , Fold to create a half circle. Bend pointed edges of cookie toward each.
