Making Fortunes

Fortune Cookies

Brought a few dozen of these to an antiChristmas party last week. Followed a great Martha Stewart fortune/tuile cookie recipe (I LOVE YOU MARTHA! XO) and filled the cookies with subversive and snarky messages like “Santa isn’t real” and “Happy fucking holidays.” One of my favorites read something like “May your holidays be filled with greed, gluttony, and sloth!

I derived some guilty pleasure watching them uneasily decode the messages, but left the party before they were all eaten. Then I got to thinking… what have I done? Will those people understand the humor? You know, because some people take the holidays VERY seriously…
