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 possibly the worst cookie recipe I've ever tried to make. I felt a strong responsiblity to review this. I followed the directions PRECISELY, and what I got was a sizzling pile of smokey molasses junk in my oven that nearly ruined my pan! For the first time in my 25 years of baking, I actually threw away the remainder of my batter. My house stinks and all I can say is that this is the biggest waste of ingredients because there MUST be something missing. I realize that eggless recipes don't always come out perfectly, but this is ridiculous. This is awful!
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.
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.
Made these tonight for a function where a child is allergic to milk and eggs and they came out GREAT! We used cookie cutters and followed the recipe to a T and they taste wonderful. Will be using this recipe again and again!
The revised recipe with flour works great! just let dough chill in the refridgerator for half hour before you roll out and cut into shapes!
These are actually very good. I followed the recipe with the exception of the following: 1. I made half a batch 2. I used 1 cup spelt/ 1 cup white flour 3. I used becel olive oil spread instead of shortening. 4. I dropped from teaspoon and flattened as suggested by another reviewer. 5. And I added a pinch of seasalt. The result was awesome & vegan. Bonus: house smells so yummy!! Thanks!
If it were possible to give this recipe a negative star rating, I would. Two minutes into the oven and my house was filled with smoke. I almost had to throw away my pan. I followed the directions exactly. Maybe there are some ingredients missing or the measurements are way off. These are horrible...
