Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. There’s just something about giving yummy gifts to the people you love with cheesy puns attached. I have been making fortune cookies for Valentine’s Day for a couple years now, they are fun to make and you can personalize the messages you put into them! I even took them up a notch this year and added hearts to make them extra festive!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix ingredients together with a whisk until combined. Add a couple drops of food coloring to make the batter pink. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray or cover with parchment paper. With a cookie scoop, scoop out an even amount of batter onto your cookie sheet. Using a spoon spread the batter into a thin circle about 4 inches wide. Set aside a 1/2 cup of batter for the hearts.
To add the hearts:
With the 1/2 cup of batter you set aside, add a couple more drops of food coloring to make the batter red. Put the batter inside a sandwich bag and cut a small hole in one of the corners of the bag making a small piping bag.
Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. Take them out of the oven and quickly start folding them, they dry quickly. Fold the circles in half once, making sure the heart patterns show on the outside. Push the center of the fold onto the rim of a glass making a fortune cookie shape. Cut strips of paper and write personal messages onto them. Fold the paper and insert the message into the fortune cookie using tweezers.
Go to your local Chinese restaurant and ask them if you can have or buy a couple of take out boxes. Decorate with heart stickers and give them to that special someone! Perfect yummy and sentimental gift! Hope you enjoyed this tutorial, if you try them out let me know how they turn out!
