The Back Story

Like chop suey, fortune cookies are a uniquely American invention. Originating in California around the turn of the 20th century, and based on the recipe for a traditional Japanese cracker, Chinese fortune cookies are virtually unknown in mainland China.

As early as the 1800’s a cookie very similar to the American fortune cookie was made in Japan, however these Japanese temple cookies were larger and made with miso and sesame rather than vanilla and butter. Like their American counterparts, they too contained random fortunes – only these were wedged into the bend of the cookie rather than placed inside the cookie itself. Crispy and delicious, these whimsical cookies are usually served in Chinese restaurants at the end of a meal.
