What can you use in place of eggs when making cookies?

I was wanting to make some peanut butter cookies but I have no eggs, I have a really simple recipe and have everything but the egg. The recipe I have calls for brown sugar, peanut butter and 1 egg. What can I use instead of the one egg? I read somewhere that 2 TBS. of vegetable oil will substitute for the egg but I don't know how true that is?

I have used bananas or applesauce as a substitute-- about a half a banana or 1/4 cup applesauce=1 egg.  These do not let the mixture rise however, so you may need to add a little baking soda in addition.  Hope this helps!

I FOUND THIS ON LINE:

Use any ONE of the following recipes to substitute for eggs in baked foods.

For each egg, use:

1 tsp. baking powder, 1 Tbl. liquid, 1 Tbl. vinegar•

1 tsp. yeast dissolved in 1/4 cup warm water•

1 Tbl. apricot puree•

1 1/2 Tbl. water, 1 1/2 Tbl. oil, 1 tsp. baking powder•

1 packet plain gelatin, 2 Tbl. warm water. Do not mix until ready to use.•
