Paul Hollywood’s Fortune Cookies
What better for a dinner party than personalised fortune cookies? These take a bit of time to perfect, but they have definite giggle factor.
For the cookie dough:
For the almond cookies:
150g white chocolate, melted, to decorate
50g chopped hazelnuts, toasted, to decorate
For the orange cookies:
orange food-colouring paste
You will also need:
medium disposable piping bag
baking sheet lined with a silicone mat
12 small pieces of paper, each about 6 x 1cm and written with a fortune
Heat the oven to 150°C/130°C fan/300°F/Gas 2.
Make the dough. Whisk the egg whites and vegetable oil together with 1 tablespoon of water until frothy but not aerated.
Sift together the flour, cornflour and salt in a bowl, then stir in the sugar.
Add the egg white mixture to the bowl and beat to a smooth batter. Try not to incorporate any air during the beating as you don’t want bubbles in the batter. Divide the batter equally into two bowls.
For the almond cookies, add the almond extract to 1 bowl, mix together, then set aside.
For the orange cookies, spoon 2–3 tablespoons of batter from the second bowl into the disposable piping bag and set aside. Add the orange extract to the remaining batter along with some orange food colouring. Mix well together, adding colouring and stirring until the batter is bright orange.
For the almond cookies, place 2 tablespoons of the almond batter on the silicone mat, spaced well apart. Using the back of a metal spoon, swirl the mixture to form 2 circles, each measuring 9–10cm in diameter. Bake for 10–12 minutes, until the outer edge is light golden brown.
Remove the almond cookies from the oven and, working very quickly, lift off 1 cookie, place a fortune in the centre and while the cookie is still soft, fold it in half and pinch the edges together to seal.
Place the middle of the folded edge of the cookie over the rim of the glass tumbler and gently pull the corners down on the inside and outside of the glass, to form the classic fortune-cookie shape.
Place in the muffin tin (this helps to hold the shape) to cool and quickly shape the second fortune cookie. Bake and shape another 2 batches with the remaining almond batter, making a total of 6 almond fortune cookies.
For the orange cookies, place 2 tablespoons of the orange batter on the silicone mat, spaced well apart. Using the back of a metal spoon, swirl the mixture to form 2 circles, each measuring 9–10cm in diameter. Snip the end off the piping bag and pipe 6 dots around each circle, 1cm in from the edge.
Place a cocktail stick in the middle of one of the white dots and drag the cocktail stick to the next dot, and then the next dot (like dot to dot), until you have been through all the dots. Bake and shape as steps 7–10, making 6 orange cookies in total.
To decorate the almond cookies, dip the ends of each cookie in the melted white chocolate, then sprinkle with the toasted chopped hazelnuts.
In 1983, the San Francisco Court of Historical Review held a mock trial to settle the issue for once and for all. (The Court has no legal authority other weighty culinary issues they have settled include whether or not chicken soup deserves its reputation as "Jewish Penicillin.") During the trial, someone provided the judge with a fortune cookie containing the message "S.F. Judge who rules for L.A. not very smart cookie." In fairness to Daniel M. Hanlon, the real-life federal judge who presided over the case, his decision rested on weightier pieces of evidence, including a set of grills. Still, it came as no surprise when the Court sided with Hagiwara and ruled that San Francisco is the birthplace of the fortune cookie.
Not surprisingly, Angelenos ignored the ruling: many sources continue to credit Jung with inventing fortune cookies. But for now, Los Angeles (County) will have to be satisfied with being the official birthplace of the Cobb Salad and the Shirley Temple mocktail.
Print or type up your fortunes and have them cut and ready to place in cookies.
After the cookies are baked, place a fortune in the center of the cookie and then fold in half. I baked up a handful of cookies without red dye, but I didn’t like how they looked. Adding the food coloring gives the cookies a bit of a punch and looks a lot prettier on a plate.
Fold the cookie in half so you have a semi circle and then gently fold them over the edge of a bowl.
Once they are folded over the edge of a bowl they look just like the fortune cookies from the restaurant.
Place the cookies in a mini muffin tin until they are completely cooled. The pan will help the cookies hold their shape.
Melt some white chocolate and dip the edge of the fortune cookie into the chocolate and then dip it into a shallow bowl of red and white nonpareils.
Let the fortune cookies cool completely and then serve at your Valentine’s Day dinner.
These fortune cookies are a fun treat to share on Valentine’s Day or just because. How fun would it be to tuck these into the kid’s lunch box for a fun little surprise at lunch time.

Chocolate Fortune Cookies
Jean-Georges Vongerichten wanted fortune cookies—good ones—for his Chinese restaurant 66. With no staff and only two days to go before the restaurant was to open, I called my colleague Johnny luzzini for help. He showed me how to shape these delicate tuile disks into the iconic Chinese-American treat. That’s right—an Italian kid who grew up in New York showed me, a Chinese-Thai kid who grew up in Asia, how to make fortune cookies.
Notes CHEF’S TIP: If you are inserting fortunes into these cookies, be sure to use inks that will not bleed when heated, as the cookies will be hot when you fold them.
Occasion Buffet, Casual Dinner Party, Cocktail Party
Dietary Consideration Lactose-free, Peanut Free, Soy Free, Tree Nut Free
Taste and Texture Chocolatey, Crunchy, Sweet
Type of Dish Chocolate Dessert, Cookie
- ¾ cup (4 ounces/115 grams) all-purpose flour
- ¾ cup (3 1/8 ounces) confectioners sugar
- ¼ cup plus 3 tablespoons (1 1/8 ounces/32 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder
- ½ cup (4 ounces/113 grams) unsalted butter , at room temperature
- 3 tablespoons corn syrup
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 4 large egg whites
- 36 fortunes written on 3 × ¼-inch strips of paper, optional
Sift together the flour, confectioners’ sugar, and cocoa powder and set aside.
Put the butter, corn syrup, and salt into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and beat on medium speed just until well combined, about 3 minutes. Turn the speed to low and add the flour mixture, then the egg whites, mixing until the dough comes together, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a large sheet of plastic wrap, flatten into a 1-inch-thick disk, and wrap tightly in the plastic. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 3 days.
When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350°F. Set out a tuile cookie pan or empty egg carton to use as a cooling rack for the cookies. You will also need a 4-inch round cookie stencil. To make your own, take the plastic lid of a large yogurt or similar container and cut off the rimmed edge. Using a razor blade or similar instrument, cut a 4-inch circle out of the center of the lid, taking care not to cut through the edge of the lid.
Set the cookie stencil on a nonstick baking mat and use a small offset spatula or a table knife to spread 2 teaspoons of dough evenly inside the stencil, spreading the dough into a very thin, smooth circle, about 1/16 inch thick. Continue making the circles, setting them 1 inch apart, until the mat is full.
Transfer the mat to a baking sheet and bake until the tops of the cookies are dry, about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and, working very quickly, shape the cookies: one at a time, set a paper fortune, if desired, in the center of the cookie, fold the cookie in half, and, holding the cookie with the folded edge facing up, bring the 2 pointed ends upward so that they come together above the folded edge. The cookies should still be hot to the touch as you work if they cool too much before you fold them, they will break. If necessary, you can reheat them in the oven for about 30 seconds to make them pliable again. Set the cookies in the tuile pan or egg carton to cool, so that they will hold their shape, and cool completely. Repeat with the remaining batter. The cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
DIY Felt Fortune Cookies
Hey, friends! Chelsea here from Lovely Indeed, with a DIY project that you can use to jazz up your next round of Chinese take-out. It&rsquos easy and sweet, and you can make it for everyone from your sweetheart to your kiddos. Today, it&rsquos DIY felt fortune cookies.
- tan felt
- craft wire
- narrow-width ribbon (1/8&Prime shown)
Start by cutting circles out of your felt, about 3 1/2&Prime in diameter. Cut lengths of craft wire to 3&Prime and glue one down in the center of each circle. Set aside to dry.
Cut a length of ribbon to 3 1/2&Prime. Cut a strip of paper to approximately 3&Prime by 1/4&Prime and fold in half. Sandwich the ribbon between the folded paper and glue down. Write a fortune or a sweet message on the paper!
To assemble your cookie, place the fortune over the wire on your felt. Fold in half (like a taco!) so that the wire is hidden in the fold. Then, keeping the open edges together, bend the wire in half, away from the open edges so that a fortune cookie shape is created. You may need to arrange the felt a bit to get your ideal shape.
When you give your fortune cookies out, tell folks to just tug on the ribbon to find their fortune! You can use these over and over, and give them as gifts, party favors, or just let them spice up your take-out. Have a ball and good luck! xoxo
Peyton Evans and Joe Lang only dated for two years before he proposed in Aspen, Colorado, in 2019, but their relationship goes back much further. "We met in our third grade class back in 2001," says Peyton. "We went to the same elementary school, middle school, and high school, we dated for a brief moment in eighth grade, [and] we were really close friends all through high school." They went to different colleges but returned to their hometown of Dallas after graduation, picking up where they left off as friends, until they officially began dating in August 2017.
Joe's proposal in Aspen was a perfect fit for Peyton, who had always envisioned getting married there the couple began planning their wedding for fall 2020. "Everything shut down due to the pandemic in March 2020 and we thought that our plans would be unaffected, as COVID would definitely be a thing of the past in the fall-think again!" says Peyton. "Aspen was out of the question for our September wedding, but we knew that we still wanted our celebration to be there the following year. We also knew that we did not want to wait an entire year to get married-we had already waited 10 months and that was long enough! So we decided to have our intimate ceremony in our backyard and save the larger event for next year."
The couple kept their original date-September 26, 2020-and invited 20 friends and family members to an intimate service and dinner, followed by a gathering that included other loved ones (but stayed within the parameters of social distancing guidelines). Peyton's vision for the backyard nuptials included many choices made while thinking of her mother, who passed away when she was 13 years old. "I had her in my mind for every decision I made in regards to the planning and décor," says Peyton, including a color palette based on her mother's favorite shade, orange playing her mother's favorite song while Peyton's father walked her down the aisle and wrapping a piece of her mother's wedding dress around her bouquet.
And though Peyton and Joe look forward to hosting their original guest list at their rescheduled Aspen muptials in 2021, "We were so happy with our decision to get married instead of waiting another year," says Peyton. "While it wasn't what we originally envisioned, our new plan ended up being so much more special. We got to really soak in the magnitude of what we were promising each other that day and what the true meaning of marriage is. The whole day truly reflected Joe and I and we felt like it was just the two of us."
Create your own romantic, nice or naughty fortunes. I typed mine up on Word and trimmed the paper into strips. ‘Only you can make my heart crumble’ is my favorite! Fold fortunes and slip inside your cookies.
