Has anyone ever made the tollhouse cookies and substituted the egg? What would work best for these?
Thanks, Nancy

I use the toll house recipe and use the EnerG egg replacer. I actually like them better than w/ eggs. I use all butter if I am making bars, and 1/2 butter, 1/2 shortening if I am making cookies as they hold their shape together better that way.

The egg replacer that I thought was EnerG had a nut warning on it. Do they? It was at Kroger last week? Maybe it was a different brand. I will check again. Thanks.

The one I use is made by EnerG Foods and has no warning on it.

I just went to Kroger and the Health food store both said that EnerG was made on the same line as treenuts - right under the ingredient list. I did find Orgran egg replacement, but it did not say peanut/tree nut free. Has anyone used this?

If you don't have a commercial egg replacer, you can use the following:

2 Tblsp Water
1.5 tsp Baking Powder

The above equals 1 egg. If your recipie calls for baking powder already, just increase it by this much. Just add the water when creaming the margarine/butter & sugar, then add the baking powder with the other dry ingredients.

It works fairly well.

What does the vinegar do? I never heard of adding this...I'm always looking for new ideas.

Re. the vinegar: My kids said to tell you, "I don't know and I don't care. They're just delicious!" [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I think the vinegar in combo with the baking soda and baking powder helps them rise a little.

Regular white vinegar. You won't be able to taste it in the cookies.
