We have completely rewritten this recipe for clarity and we have also added flour to it. It should work well now. We always appreciate comments about bad recipes from users so that we may correct them immediately.


I saw the bad reviews on this recipe and I almost didn't try it, but I am so glad that I did! These gingerbread cookies taste so much like the real thing it's uncanny. My daughter has an egg allergy, so anytime we can do holiday baking together it is such a treat. Thanks for submitting this great recipe!


This is a great eggless cookie. I didn't even bother to roll them out. Just used a small ice cream scoop, rolled them in additional white sugar and pushed them down with the bottom of a glass. Mmmmm.
