Fortune Cookies


  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Cook Time : 14 min
  • Ready Time : 29 min



  • 2 egg whites 2
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 2 mL
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract 2 mL
  • 3 Tbsp canola oil 45 mL
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour 125 mL
  • 1 1/2 tsp cornstrach 7 mL
  • 1/4 tsp salt 1 mL
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar 125 mL
  • 1 Tbsp water 15 mL



1 Preheat oven to 350F (180C). Spray canola oil onto two small 9 x 13 inch (23 x 23 cm) baking sheets. Before preparing cookies, cut out 12 to 14 paper pieces, 3 1/2 x 1/2 inch (9 x 1 cm), and write fortunes on each piece of paper.
2 In a medium bowl, whisk together egg whites, vanilla, almond extract and canola oil until mixture is frothy.
3 In separate small bowl, sift together flour, cornstarch, salt and sugar. Stir in water. Add flour mixture to canola oil mixture and whisk until ingredients are combined and mixture is very smooth.
4 Drop cookie dough, by tablespoons, onto one of the prepared baking sheets. Then spread dough with a small spatula until the dough is about 3 1/2 inches (9 cm) in diameter.
5 Bake for about 14 minutes or until outer edge of each cookie turns golden brown and the cookies are easy to remove from the pan with a spatula.
6 Remove one cookie at a time and flip it over in your hand. Place one of the fortunes in the middle of the cookie. The cookies are hot to handle. Be careful.
7 Quickly fold the cookie in half and then holding the outer edges of the folded half, gently press folded edge (browned edge facing up) over the edge of a glass to form the characteristic shape of the fortune cookie.
8 Quickly place into a muffin cup so the cookie will cool in this shape.

    Hi, I’d love to make these as a personalized anniversary gift for my boyfriend; He has a nut allergy, and so I was wondering if I could just omit the almond extract, but double the amount of vanilla extract?

    • I would think that would be fine, it will obviously change the flavor a bit, but should still be good. Happy Anniversary.

    Any way to make this kosher for Passover? Flavor is not as important as shape. Thx.

    • Are you trying my Chinese Seder? I don’t know how to make these for passover, but maybe using cakemeal instead of flour and potato starch instead of cornstarch, but I have no idea if that will work.
