Gallery: DIY: How to Make Homemade Valentine’s Day Fortune Cookies for ...

This Valentine's Day, show your loved ones how "fortunate" you are to have them by making them a batch of scrumptious homemade fortune cookies! You can write personalized predictions and sweet nothings on strips of recycled paper and tuck them right into each cookie for a sweet surprise. Read on to see the full DIY - there are only a few ingredients so you can whip these up in a snap!


- 1/4 cup of unbleached all-purpose flour - 1/4 cup of regular sugar - 1 egg white (you can substitute in 1 Tbsp. plain agar powder dissolved in 1 Tbsp. water, whipped, chilled, and whipped again if you want to make your cookies vegan) - 3 Tbsp. of water - 1/8 teaspoon of vanilla extract - A pinch of salt

Helpful tips: These cookies admittedly take a bit of practice to get perfect, but there are a few tricks to getting them to come out as nicely as possible:

- The less cookies you do on one sheet, the easier it is. - If you find that your cookies are too mushy in consistency, add a bit more water. That may sound counter-intuitive, but the water makes the batter easier to spread thin which helps dry the cookies out properly. - Don’t use too much batter for each cookie. A little more than a teaspoon of batter should do the trick.
