François de La Rochefoucauld
Fortune Cookies were invented by Makoto Hagiwara, right back in 1909.

Fortune Cookies are fun to open, but also to make! And this is why Ching Oracle gives you the real recipe for your homemade Fortune Cookies, to open with your friends!
Here are the ingredients:
- 50 g of butter
- 3 egg whites
- 70 g of caster sugar
- 100 g of flour
- vanilla extract
- a pinch of salt
Making time: 20 minutes
After softening the butter, whisk the egg whites and gradually add the caster sugar, the sifted flour and the vanilla extract.
Place the mixture onto a baking tray, using a spoon to swirl out the mixture into small circles. (Bake for 3 minutes in a 180C oven).
Take the biscuits out and place the fortunes you have prepared in the centre of each cookie, close them, put them back in the oven for a further 30 seconds, take them out and form the classic fortune cookie shape.
Finally, set aside to cool.
