  • Egg Whites: 2 large
  • Vanilla Extract: 1 teaspoon
  • Almond Extract: 1 teaspoon
  • Sunflower Oil: 3 tablespoons
  • Plain Flour: 3 1/2 ounces
  • Cornflour: 2 teaspoons
  • Salt: a pinch
  • Caster Sugar: 3 1/2 ounces
  • Water: 3 teaspoons
  • Gel Food Coloring (pink, purple, blue, green, yellow): various amounts


  1. Prepare Fortunes:
    • Write fortunes on small strips of paper and cut them out.
  2. Prep:
    • Preheat your oven to 320°F. Line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper.
  3. Make Batter:
    • In a bowl, beat egg whites, vanilla extract, almond extract, and sunflower oil until frothy. Gradually add flour, cornflour, salt, sugar, and water, beating until a thin batter forms.
  4. Coloring:
    • Divide the batter into separate bowls and add a different color of gel food coloring to each.
  5. Bake:
    • Spoon small amounts of the batter onto the baking sheet. Spread into thin circles and bake for about 15 minutes.
  6. Shape:
    • Quickly place a fortune in the center of each cookie, fold in half, and then bend over the rim of a cup to create the fortune cookie shape.


  • Work quickly when shaping the cookies as they harden fast.
  • Use a variety of colors for a more festive look.
  • Make sure the batter is very thin to ensure crispy cookies.


  1. Can I make the fortunes in advance? Yes, you can prepare the fortunes ahead of time and store them in an airtight container until ready to use.
  2. Can I use liquid food coloring instead of gel? Gel food coloring is recommended as it provides vibrant colors without adding extra moisture to the batter, which could affect the texture of the cookies.
