To celebrate the end of Chinese New Year, mom made me some Fortune Cookies.
First, Where did fortune cookies originate?
I can tell you it did not originate from China but in California, USA.
There’s no official documentation who really invented the fortune cookie.
Many say it started by a Japanese immigrant who placed thank you notes inside a cookie.
What is a fortune cookie?
A cookie served after a Chinese meal and fortune message hidden inside.
What is it made of?
A cookie made with simple ingredients such as flour, sugar, oil and flavoring (vanilla).
Mom made a Doggie Fortune Cookie that I can eat.
Instead of a fortune, she placed a message in each of the cookies.
She made these Fortune Cookies with
1/3 cup of flour, 2 teaspoon of potato flour, 1 tablespoon of oil, for flavoring: blueberry syrup
( heated some fresh blueberries and mixed it with the flour, it also gives color)
From the dough, mom was able to make ~8pieces.
It’s a process, broken into 2 parts.
The 1st part needs to be done in a quick manner …
you have to bake a small flat piece of dough for about 2 minutes.
As soon as you take it our from the oven (its HOT),
place the message inside then fold the dough in half.
Bend it again from the middle. Set it aside.
Repeat the process with the rest of the hot dough. Once the cookies are formed baked it for another 20 to 30 minutes and/or until it is brown and crisp.
Mom asked me to select a cookie to eat … did you see the message inside the cookie,
More TREATS!!! Woof! Woof! For More Tasty Treats!

Oh yum yum. I do believe I would enjoy them very much. And just wanted to let you know I noemally don’t get the Girl Scout cookies. But when MOM took them off my nose two hit the floor and well… I got to them before she did.

This is so thoughtful! What a neat idea. Happy Tuesday, Sugar. xoxo
I’ve made fortune cookies for the dogs before, too. I personally cut out circles and then fold them into a fortune cookie. I stick a little piece of foil into the opening of the cookie so that it doesn’t bake shut. Then I place a fortune into the baked cookie.
They’re a lot of work; your mom must love you lots, Sugar 🙂
Hey Sugar, Jet here.
What a pawesome idea. Mom just shared with LIttle Miss Attentive and I that she made fortune cookies in 8th grade with a friend for history class and it was tricky! Love the blueberry idea, we had a few blueberry tidbits yesterday morning as Mom packed the container for snack at the biscuit earning place!
Brilliant message btw…
Thanks so much for visiting us during and sending so many lovies our way (especially to Mom!)
That is a great idea and recipe…we will have to try it
Madi and Mom says
Sugar your Mom should open a cafe serving both 2 and 4 leggers she is quite creative with her delicious
foods. We love blueberries
Hugs Madi your BFFF
More treats? That’s sounds like a great fortune to me BOL!!!
Mom loved fortune cookies until she became gluten free. I wonder how they would taste with rice flour. Maybe she will make doggie ones instead, Thanks for the treat.

Your mom is very clever, mom has always wanted to make us fortune cookies but is intimidated by the process she will have to try some day though
easy rider says
We are fans of fortune cookies – thanks for the recipe Sugar, now we can make my own cookies and my own fortune ;o)
Yum, Yum, Yum… we had to do a Ten on Tuesday instead of Tasty Tuesday today – we couldn’t resist the topic! lol
Frankie Furter and Ernie says
THAT is a super fortune fur SURE.
Emily @ Adventures of a Dog Mom says

What a creative recipe. I did know that fortune cookies weren’t invented in China but only because my husband is Chinese and he told me. For Chinese New Year, we prepared a huge meal with lots of goodies and invited some friends over. Yes, my dogs Maya & Pierson got some goodies too, but only dog treats (unless someone snuck them some people food under the table). 🙂
Mitch and Molly says
You have the most clever mom, Sugar! Lucky you!
Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly
I’m naughty….I let me guys have a bite of the fortune cookies that come with our take-out food. I figure a tiny bit of sugar won’t hurt them…..
Molly The Wally says
Wow Sugar we are so impressed that mum makes her own Fortune Cookies. We are going to print this off and use it as well as reminding us to make our own fun version when we have Chinky Night. Pawsome. Have a terrific Tuesday.
Best wishes Molly
Super cool idea!
That’s a great idea! You should sell doggy fortune cookies so all doggies can get fun fortunes!
Casey the Boxer says
BOL! I don’t know what you’re talking about, but that’s a grreat fortune!
Ann Paws says
They look super tasty Sugar. Very cute idea!
Now that is the best fortune, the one that say’s “More Treats”!

This is a great idea Sugar…Momz had never thought of making fortune cookies at home, but it doesn’t sound all the hard (except for the hot hot part) so we may try to do this one
I bet my pups would love this, thanks! Happy days to you, Sugar!
They look nommy!
