The answer is YES! The other night I started to make a batch of cookies for my family when I realized I had no eggs. It was already late and I was already in my jammies, so I quickly googled this question.
There were a lot of sugar cookies, but my family really likes chocolate chip when I came upon this recipe (from www.allrecipes.com) for cookies with no eggs. How did they taste? Awesome! I made them really small, using a melon baller to measure the dough. They were moist and yummy!
2 sticks butter or margarine (I used margarine)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1.5 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 cup hot water
2 cups oats
In a small bowl, mix the 1/4 hot water and add the baking soda, set aside.
Meanwhile, in a big mixing bowl add the sugars and butter and mix until creamy. Add the rest of the ingredients (including the water) until the dough is mixed well. Place on a cookie sheet – they do not spread out, so I fit 16 cookies per cookie sheet and was fine. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes.
Now onto Claire’s birthday school snack! My daughter Claire is turning 9 on Sunday. So she gets to bring a snack to school. I asked her what she wanted me to make and she immediately said “Chocolate drizzled pretzels with sprinkles!” I only had white chocolate, and she was fine with that. *Use Almond Bark which is a candy chocolate because it dries really fast. You can buy it right where the chocolate chips are and it looks like this:
On a piece of parchment paper, lay out the pretzels. Melt the chocolate in the microwave in just drizzle over the pretzels and add the sprinkles. I had these cute little boxes I bought at the dollar store (12 boxes for a dollar!) so I placed the pretzels in there and wrapped it with the bows. She was super excited!!
Do you get to make treats for your kids at school, or does it have to be store bought?
