Our family’s “foodie” pursuits are hindered slightly by Paul’s allergies to eggs and several varieties of tree nuts. Honestly, it doesn’t bother him all that much – he’s lived with it his whole life and doesn’t know what he’s missing – and we’ve become pretty creative at home with egg-free cooking. It’s been fun to adapt and to perfect recipes so that the whole family can enjoy them. In this blog, I thought we could share some of our eggless cooking original compositions for those who maybe have the same allergies or who perhaps would just like to make a tasty treat for Paul!
The first recipe is for Chocolate Crinkle Cookies. I was hoping for a really rich and chocolaty cookie with a nice sugary coating, and this fits the bill. Real dark chocolate makes the difference, I think.
As usual, I had my able and willing sous chefs to assist with the process.
This is a nice cookie to make with children because the rolling and sugaring process is really fun! When we first made these cookies (trial #1 of the recipe), we didn’t have any powdered sugar so we rolled them in granulated sugar prior to baking. This time I had planned on just using powdered sugar, but Joey suggested we do both types of sugar because the granulated sugar gave a nice crunch to the outside. So, we double-rolled these guys! Joey has excellent chef sense sometimes.
The finished product looks beautiful and tastes nice and sweet with good depth of chocolate flavor.
Lately Tommy has been quite interested in sounding out letters, and he worked very hard to write out the recipe for these cookies.
Love the process pics! Sooo cute! They look yummy! Does Joey wear a uniform to school? It looks like he has a sweater with a logo of sorts and a little tie! Loooved Tommy’s recipe ingredients list!
Thanks! Yes, the boys have school uniforms. I finally wrote about school – see today’s post.
So glad you are finding the time to do these blogs, Amy. It has been such fun keeping up with you guys on your big adventure!
Netley, you’ll need to come visit and join the adventure!
I am catching up on your posts. Those cookies look heavenly. How great that your boys are so involved in the process! Joey is so handsome in his uniform.
Thanks, Lisa! I agree that Joey does look smart in his uniform.

Thanks for posting this recipe! These are one of my favorite cookies, but i recently found out I’m allergic to eggs and have since had a serious lack of desserts in my life. They turned out really well, though a bit crunchy for my tastes. Regardless, great eggless recipe! Made my day.
Excellent! I’m so glad the recipe worked out well for you. Makes me want to make them again for our family again soon.
