Valentine Fortune Cookies


1/2 C flour- If you have bread flour, use it.
1/2 C sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 egg whites

Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend to combine. Place in a container and chill 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 400°.

Spoon 1 teaspoon batter onto a greased baking sheet; spread evenly to make about a 3" circle. (You can also use parchment paper and draw your circles so you know how big to make them.) Bake at 400° for 5-6 minutes or until the cookies are brown just around the edges and a little toward the centers. Remove from the oven. Let sit for a few seconds before removing from pan. Working quickly, loosen edges of cookies with a spatula, and turn over.

Place fortune along the center of 1 cookie. Fold cookie over so the edges meet; press edges together.

Gently pull the ends of the cookie down over the rim of a small bowl (or jar); hold for a few seconds or until set. Repeat procedure with remaining cookies.

I found these were hot to work with so if you have latex gloves to wear while folding over the cookie and placing it on a bowl, I would recommend it.

Once cookies are cooled (a minute or so), you can dip them in chocolate and decorate with sprinkles!

I used semi-sweet chocolate chips and white chocolate chips for contrast-

with pink and red sprinkles for Valentine's Day-

I found it was easiest to spoon the chocolate over the cookie and then sprinkle the sprinkles on top (as opposed to dipping them in the sprinkles - too messy).

Packaging these yummy cookies might have been my favorite part. There were so many cute "take-out" boxes at Michael's to choose from.

I found the recipe for these over at Our Best Bites. Check them out for other great food ideas.



  1. What a fun idea, Ashlee :)
    I love your blog!

  2. These were a great idea. I didn't even know it was possible to make them homemade. Delicious too!
