A fortune cookie is a crisp and sugary folded cookie made from flour, sugar, vanilla, and sesame seed oil. Tucked inside will be a small strip of paper with your secret message “fortune.” This message may be sage advice, lottery number series, a funny saying or another tidbit. Sailors give and receive plenty of advice, so it makes sense that today we see these cookies.
The origin of fortune cookies is still debated. There are immigrant groups in California that lay claim to having made these snacks popular in the early 20th century. Other rumors state that the cookie originated with Japanese immigrants to the United States in the late 19th or early 20th century.
