Eggless fortune cookies

Eggless fortune cookies,
Fortune cookies are served in most of the Chinese restaurants, they are usually made with egg whites. These cookies are on my to-do list for a long time but recently I came across the eggless version of it. The recipe really inspired me to make the cookies, the actual recipe is given below. These cookies are really adorable and perfect way to surprise your friends and family with the hidden message inside the cookies.

[recipe title=”Eggless fortune cookies” servings=”4-5″ time=”30mins” difficulty=”easy”]


Corn flour 2 tbsp
Water 6 tbsp
Vanilla essence 1 tsp
Oil 3 tbsp
Maida / all-purpose flour 8 tbsp
Corn flour 1 ½  tsp
Salt ¼th tsp
Sugar 8 tbsp
Water 3 tsp


Add the first four ingredients in the above table in a bowl and whisk it well. In another bowl add the remaining ingredients except for 3 tsp of water( I powdered the sugar in the food processor) and whisk it well. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and add the 3 tsp of water and whisk it well. Place a silicon mat over the baking tray and using a tablespoon add the prepared batter on it and using the spoon spread them gently around 4″ inch diameter ( you can make them small as well).

Make two at a time because you should fold them while they are hot once it cools they become crispy, if that happens, place the crispy once in the oven and bake for 1 or 2 minutes and fold them while they are hot. Wear cooking mittens just in case. Place them into the preheated oven at 180 ° C for 10 minutes or the edges are slightly brown.

Take them out of the oven, using butter knife/ offset spatula gently lift the cookie and flip it on the workspace, place the message and fold it in half, hold it for 2 seconds and press it in the middle as shown below. Place the prepared cookies in a small bowl to retain its shape. After few minutes transfer them into an airtight container, the cookies are soft when they are hot and crispy when the are at room temperature. Your eggless fortune cookies are ready to serve.

  1. Oh my!! These look so yumm! I love fortune cookies; a perfect end to any Chinese meal; and yours are eggless too.. must try this soon 🙂

  2. You don’t have the baking instructions listed and it’s corn starch, not corn flour! OMG I just wasted so much time. UGH!!!

    1. In India it’s commonly referred as corn flour. Baking instructions are there in the second paragraph.

    1. Thanks for trying the recipe! It’s soft when it’s warm. Fold it to desired shape and let it come to room temperature.

      If this doesn’t work, next time reduce oven temperature a little and bake for little longer till the edges are golden.
