Fortune Cookies

posted in Food & Drink > Recipes

    8 tablespoons flour

    2 egg whites

    1½ teaspoons cornstarch

    8 tablespoons sugar

    3 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • ¾ teaspoon vanilla extract

    2 teaspoons water

    ½ teaspoon almond extract (optional)

    ¾ teaspoon salt


    Before making the cookies, write out fortunes on a paper, and cut out strips which are about 7 cm long and 1.25 cm wide. You can write 10 to 15 fortunes one on each strip.

    In a mixing bowl, beat the egg whites, vanilla and almond extract and vegetable oil together.

  • Then add the cornstarch, flour, salt, sugar and water, to another bowl and beat it vigorously to get a smooth batter. Mix the two mixtures in one common bowl and beat once again, so all the ingredients blend well.

    Grease a baking dish with a little bit oil so that the cookies don't stick to the sheet. With a spoon drop circular patches (8 to 10 cm in diameter) of batter on the sheet, and move the spoon over them to flatten the cookies (they look like small pancakes). Bake these in a preheated oven at 300 degrees F for about 15 minutes, till they are slightly golden brown at the edges.

  • Now, pull out the dish, remove one cookie on a plate, flip it over and place the fortune slip in the middle of the cookie.

    Fold the cookie in half and then hold the center of this half on the rim of a glass, and bend it over.

    A depression is created after which you are supposed to cool the cookies, so that the shape is hardened.

    Your delicious fortune cookies are ready to be served!


    1.) Colored paper

    2.) Scissors

    3.) Matching Ribbon

    4.) Glue

    5.) Colored marker

    6.) Bowl


    On one side of the colored paper, draw perfect circles with colored makers, so that they could be cut out neatly.

    On the ribbons, write fortunes with the marker and make sure the ribbons are longer so they can be seen outside the cookies.

    Cut out the circles, and place the ribbons on the white side of the paper, so that the colored part will be on the visible side, when you fold the circle.

  • Fold it into half, and bend it over a spoon to get the depression.

    In order to hold this bend, fold the edges of the circle and glue them close to the bend.

    The ribbons can be adjusted at equal lengths to make them visible.

    Prepare about 30 to 40 such paper fortune cookies and place them in a large bowl.

  • Let the guests pick out their fortune at the entrance, enjoy reading and sharing it with others!!!😄
