While fortune cookies may seem as commonplace as Chinese restaurants are ubiquitous, they’re actually quite intriguing. No one really knows where they came from, except that wherever it was, it wasn’t China. Some speculate that they are the modern day descendants of the Japanese omikuji cookie, which also contained small slips of paper with fortunes written on them, and though many people have tried to claim that they created the famous treat, an official ruling has never been made. No matter where you think fortune cookies really came from, there’s one thing that most people agree on – they don’t taste very good! That’s why I decided to try my hand at making a homemade version for Valentine’s Day. Not only is this DIY version so much more light, crisp and delicate, it’s also a lovely way to show the people you love how “fortunate” you are to have them. Read on for the recipe!
