A fortune cookie was a type of cookie from Earth that contained a piece of paper with a "fortune" inside. They were often served in Chinese restaurants.
Gabriel Lorca's family made fortune cookies in the 22nd century, and Lorca kept a bowl of them in his ready room on the USS Discovery. In 2256, he offered one to Michael Burnham as a symbol for the possibilities of working on his ship. (DIS: "Context Is for Kings")
In a deleted scene from "The Expanse", Becky broke a fortune cookie and told Jonathan Archer that he was in luck regarding his previous question about joining Becky in her apartment.
