I'm looking for a piece of cooking equipment to make fortune cookies.
Searches for "fortune cookie maker" "fortune cookie oven" and a few
others turned up nothing. Perhaps you'll do better.
The answer must point to a piece of equipment specifically used to
make fortune cookies. I've found lots of recipes that call for
flattening with spoons, etc, and I've found crepe makers, etc. None of

It seems that fortune cookies are not baked in an oven. They're
grilled. Check this out and let me know if this is the equipment
you're looking for so I can post an official answer. I look forward to

Sci Tech has recently developed a "mini" fortune cookie machine that
is fully-automated and produces up to 600 cookies per hour. This
machine is a great way to get into the booming low-carb food industry
and to draw customers into your restaurant by showing them how fortune
cookies are made.

OPERATION OF MACHINE
The delicious batter is pumped to the machine that precisely pours it
onto small hot grills, where it starts baking. A few short moments
later, a fortune message printed on a slip of paper - fed from rolls
containing thousands of fortunes - is laid onto the soft golden brown
batter. Clamps close the cookies and formed the shape of fortune
cookie. The cookies are then allowed to sit and cool before packed in
a box or individually wrapped.

CZH, and PinkFreud: thank you so much for the research! What I'm
looking for is a home fortune cookie maker, something to have in my
kitchen. BUT - that wasn't in my original question, though it should
have been, so if you want to claim the fee due to the research you've
done, I don't have a problem with that.
Of course, if you can find a home fortune cookie maker, that'd be
ideal. But at this point, I'm pretty convinced there's no such thing.
