    I have a cousin whose youngest son is allergic to eggs. I want to make cookies for the family and have finally found some eggless cookie recipes that sound good. I'm posting them in case there are others out there with this problem too...

    Reader's Digest Chocolate Chip Cookies

    1 cup soft butter
    1 cup brown sugar
    1 tsp. baking soda
    1/4 cup boiling water
    1 tsp vanilla
    1 1/4 cups flour
    1/2 tsp. salt
    2 cups quick oats
    12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips

    Cream butter and sugar together. Dissolve the baking soda in the boiling water and stir into butter/sugar mixture. Add vanilla, then dry ingredients and chocolate chips. Drop small balls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees.

    Chocolate Chip Yummies

    2 c. powdered sugar
    4 tsp. vanilla
    3 c. flour
    1 tsp. baking soda
    2 c. quick oats
    1 pkg. (12 oz.)semi-sweet choc. chips

    Cream the butter and powdered sugar and add the vanilla. Add the flour and baking soda, mix well. Finally add the quick oats and the choc. chips; mix well. Form into small balls and press with a fork. Bake at 325° for 12-15 minutes.
    Makes about 11 doz.cookies.

    Brown Sugar Shortbread

    1 cup butter (no substitutes) -- softened
    1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

    In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Gradually stir in the flour. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 3 minutes. Pat into a 1/3-in.-thick rectangle measuring 11-in. x 8-in. Cut into 2-in. x 1-in. strips. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Prick with a fork. Bake at 300' for 25 minutes or until bottom begins to brown. Cool for 5 minutes; remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Yield: "3 1/2 dozen"

    My cousin's son is allergic to nuts too, so I can't make the next couple of recipes for them, but I'll include them for those who can...


    1 c. Crisco
    1 c. brown sugar
    1 tsp. soda
    1 c. flour
    1/4 c. boiling water
    3 c. oatmeal
    1/2 c. pecans
    1 c. chocolate chips
    Mix all ingredients except nuts and chips. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes on ungreased cookie sheet


    1 c. tub butter
    1 c. sugar
    1 c. brown sugar, firmly packed
    5 tbsp. skim milk
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1 c. peanut butter

    I'll add another, if you don't mind.

    I tried this recipe this weekend. I found it on a blog, but I can't remember where. The cookies were pretty tasty.

    Festive Cream Cheese Cookies
    • 1 c. butter, softened
    • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
    • 1 c. sugar
    • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
    • 2 1/2 c. flour
    • 1/2 tsp. salt
    • 1/2 c. pecans, finely chopped
    • red and green sugar crystals
    Cream together butter and cream cheese in large mixing bowl. Add sugar and vanilla, beating until light and fluffy. Combine flour and salt; add gradually to creamed mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in pecans. Shape dough into four 6-inch rolls, 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Mold a sheet of foil to each roll, press out the air, fold short ends up, crimp to seal. Chill overnight. Coat roll with red or green sugar crystals before slicing into 1/4 inch slices. Bake in 325 oven on ungreased cookie sheet 15-18 minutes or until bottom of cookie is lightly browned.
