Eggless Indeed !!! My second treat for my family in India was Chocolate Chip Cookies. This got to be a bit chewy .... Some of them were chewy... and some were crispy.. Its entirely to do with the time we bake :)
My grandpa made it a point to ring me after he had them with his evening Filter Coffee... coz he really cherished and thoroughly enjoyed the taste.. and more over it was his darling grand daughter who had made it!!!
My standard egg replacer is Yogurt.. Very easy to use and we are bound to get it right in the first attempt. My brother picked up Ener-G , the egg replacer powder.. from US.. Definitely my future try's will have them instead of yogurt!!!
