cholesterol free cookies recipes?

My mum and dad have to watch what they eat because of their cholesterol level. At the moment its ok but if they dont watch what they eat it can raise their level of cholesterol.

I baked some cookies over the weekend and they contained eggs which I know they are not allow to have. So is there a egg free cookie recipe out there that someone could tell me, so I can bake it for my mum and dad when they come and visit me! thanks

    Comments: Who says peanut butter's off-limits on a diet? Our

    freezer cookies are such a treat, they'll easily become a family


    Flavor Booster: Browned margarine has a nutty flavor that enhances a

    peanut butter cookie. Melt the margarine in a small skillet until it

    sizzles and just begins to brown. Remove from heat and freeze for 20

    minutes, or until firm, before using in recipe.

    It is very easy to bake cookies, cakes, muffins without eggs as other people mentioned:

    Ennergy egg replacer works great. You can also replace the butter with vegetable base margarine. This will work in every recipe you like.

    Oatmeat cookies

    * 1 c. instant oats

    * 1.5 c. spelt flour or whole wheat flour

    * 1 tsp. baking soda

    * 1 tsp. baking powder

    * 1/2 tsp. salt

    * 1 tsp. cinnamon

    * 1/2 c. applesauce

    * 1/2 c. blackstrap molasses

    * 1/2 c. maple syrup, Grade B

    * 1 tsp. vanilla extract

    * 1 c. raisins

    Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and stir until "just mixed." Scoop dough onto a cookie sheet (about 2 tbsp per cookie) and bake at 350 F for 12 min.

    Makes 20 cookies.

    Cranberry Hermits

    * 1/3 cup butter

    * 1 cup packed brown sugar

    * 2 tablespoons sour cream

    * 1 teaspoon orange essence

    * 1 teaspoon grated orange rind/zest

    * 1 3/4 cups plain/all purpose flour

    * 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

    * 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

    * 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

    * 1/2 teaspoon allspice

    * 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

    * 2 cups dried cranberries

    * ICING:

    * 1 3/4 cups icing sugar/confectioner's sugar

    * 3 tablespoons orange juice

    Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas mark 4

    Cream together the butter and sugar; beat in the cream, essence and rind/zest until light.

    Sift together the flour, soda, baking powder and spices. Stir into butter mixture. Mix in the cranberries.

    Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls, about 2 inches apart, onto lightly greased baking sheets; flatten tops with back of spoon. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden. Let cool slightly, then remove to racks and cool completely.

    Blend the icing sugar/confectioner's sugar with the orange juice. Drop a teaspoonful onto the centre of each cookie.

    It's the egg yolk that has the cholestrol. Also, butter, shortening, etc. will have added cholestrol usually. Try the meringue cookies. Look up different recipes. You can make them flavored with different oils or finely shredded citrus peel, or crushed peppermint, or finely crushed nuts (which have a little cholestrol but not much if you crush them up and just use a little)...but the meringue cookies are crisp and tasty and just right for your folks!

    What a thougthful daughter!

    Keep in mind they are not low sugar so they should still go easy on them!

    Also, here is a good recipe that my sister makes. It it totally fat free and low sugar.

    At the store you can buy a pre-baked sugar free angel food cake. Most grocery stores have them.

    Also buy fat free frozen whipped topping like Cool Whip (a medium tub)

    1 large sized box of fat free/sugar free vanilla pudding

    1 regular sized can of crushed pineapple with the juice. Do not drain the juice.

    Dump the pudding and the can of pineapple in a big bowl and stir it up. Let it sit 2 or 3 minutes. Then carefully fold in the whipped topping.

    Slice the cake in 3 making a regular layer cake. Put the first layer on a plate and spoon on some of the filling, then put the second layer on and put on more filling. Put the top layer on and use the rest of the filling to "frost" the whole cake.

    I top mine iwht chopped up berries and it's SO GOOD. Nobody believes it is fat free and cholestrol free but it is.


    Plus, after you do it once, you see how easy it is and it takes all of 5 minutes to make it.

    Dear Dreamange; I happen to be a Chef. There is a basic but very versatile Cookie recipe developed many moons ago by the Germans (Where I live now!). It's called the 1,2,3, Cookie dough. It's very simple. 1 part sugar, 2 parts Cholesterol free Butter or Shortening, (Check your Diabetes aisle). 3 parts Flour. The part (of course is up to you, always use the same measure and measure exactly. Baking IS an ART!)

    Please check this out; if it works for you, please let me know.

    There are many types of Cookies to make with this. Simply but a good cook book about the WAY of making designer cookies!

    Sweetie,the only way to eliminate eggs is to use an egg substitute.I do not eat eggs,I use Ener- G Egg replacer.You would use about 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons of the egg replacer.

    However,in cookies if they only require a few eggs,thats not necessarily for the rise it gives,but the binding agent.In this case,you can eliminate the egg and use another form of liquid(Water,juice,or soy milk)to keep it moist.If it calls for one or two eggs you would use one-two teaspoons for every egg.

    Also,You can use a half of a ripe banana mashed.

    Or,the most easiest way to replace the egg is to use 2 tablespoons of cornstarch beaten with 2 tablespoons of water.

    The last few are for more than one or two eggs.

    Good luck hun and have a good day!

    Any recipes that require egg... you can replace that by using cornstarch 1 tblsp& 1tsp for each

    egg U replace.. add a little baking powder too if U want what your cooking to rise.. this is in addition to what the recipe already calls for.

    If the recipe calls for milk... Use coconut milk

    or rice milk or soya milk cause regular milk contains cholesterol!
