Fortune Cookies Recipe

As the Chinese New Year is here, we’ve got an easy fortune cookie recipe you can make with the family at home! 🥠 🥠 🥠

They may not look like the ones you normally see, but they’re homemade and taste delicious! The darker colour that you see is from using whole grain flour and vanilla powder.

Ingredients (for 10 cookies):

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of water
  • 10 pieces of paper with a fortune written on them


  1. Preheat oven to 220 degrees.
  2. Combine egg whites and vanilla extract in a medium bowl and whisk until the mixture is frothy.
  3. Sift in the flour, sugar and salt. Then gently mix together using a spatula.
  4. Add 1 tablespoon of water at a time and mix together.
  5. Place 1 tablespoon of the batter onto a tray with a silicone mat or baking sheet.
  6. Repeat with another tablespoon of batter, making sure to only leave two circles on the tray.
  7. Bake for 8 minutes or until the edges become golden brown.
  8. Quickly remove each cookie from the tray, add a fortune in the middle, fold the cookies in half, then place flat side on the lip of a cup, folding the edges down into a fortune cookie shape. Then, place the cookie in a muffin tin until cooled to retain its shape.
  9. Repeat with the remaining batter.
