Cookie help! We made them without eggs and used applesauce and now...

They are just MELTING into puddles in the oven

Any ideas for the rest of the dough?

We have a 4 year old expecting cookies

  • you substituted eggs with applesauce? Applesauce can be used in place of oil,not eggs
    Sorry,your dough is toast

  • Yeah toss it, go buy eggs and start over.
    Applesauce replaces oil not eggs.

  • What recipe did you use? I've heard of some no egg recipes but there has to be a substitute used that will bind the dough. So, you couldn't use applesauce for both the eggs and the oil.

  • Applesauce (or milk, juice, or another pureed fruit) can only be substituted for eggs if it the called for egg is being used for added moisture. In the case of cookies, they are being used for binding.

  • Opps...that would be 1T of cornstarch to 2 T of water then add oil

    Answer by Michigan-Mom74 at 11:28 PM on Dec. 19, 2013

  • Ok I found the applesauce method..." To substitute one egg, use one fourth of a cup of pureed applesauce. As with bananas, applesauce also lends great balance ad binding properties to your dish. Your cookies become lighter, crisper, and browner. Before using the applesauce, make sure you have pureed it completely, or it will form lumps."

  • For someone who has a S/O as a chef you sure don't know much about cooking.
