Baking is a Science!

A few customers have asked me if I have a cookie recipe that mimick the Famous Amos Chocolate Chip cookies. Well, I don't. But it didn't stop me to make my own crunchy cookie.

This cookie was initially created for a Hindu lady. She told me she's Vegetarian. And I thought it meant "No eggs" so I had to improvised a recipe I had just for her. I did this No Eggs Chocolate Chip cookies for her. Only to find out later when she came to pick up her cookies "We can eat eggs, dear!"

So I baked a bit more, left it in the store for others to try. Many ask for the recipe as they say it tastes like the Famous Amos extra crunchy cookies.

I had a regular customer, R, while paying for her items at the counter, she couldn't stop munching the cookies..a box of the cookies was almost gone ! She simply loved it.

Here's the cookie for you to try at home. For this recipe, I INSIST that you use the 'branded' ingredients stated below for that maximum taste factor.

Enjoy! I think I will make another batch today for people to try.

Thank for the no-egg chocolate chip cookies - I am going to make it for our Kindergarten Sunday Class in which one little boy cannot have eggs. I will update you with the comment from my kindergarten class. God Bless.

Hi Christine, I have a few recipes for cookies which doesn't use eggs at all. :) these were created for my mother in law who is a staunch Buddhist vegetarian. And I don't use any chemicals too..like baking soda, baking powder, sponge gel so its healthier for the very young and also the very old.
