Valentine Fortune Cookies

Surprise your valentine with these personalized fortune cookies!  Or wrap them up in Chinese take out boxes and give them as gifts :)


  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 drops of red food coloring
  • small strips of paper for fortunes
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line baking sheet with parchment paper.  Write out fortunes on small strips of paper no larger than 3 inches long.  Beat the egg whites until foamy but not until they have become stiff.   Gently mix in the other ingredients until combined.  Drop a teaspoon of batter onto the cookie sheet and spread in a thin circle until about 3 inches in diameter.  Continue for remaining cookies but work in small batches so you will have time to form the cookie before cooling once it is removed from the oven (start with 3 or 4 cookies at a time).  Bake for 5 minutes.

Remove from oven and place the fortune into the center of the cookie.  Gently remove cookie with a spatula and fold in half.  Finally crimp the cookie bringing the 2 sides of the cookie together to form your fortune cookie.  Allow to cool and set (takes about 30 seconds).  Package them in cute Chinese take out boxes :)
