My son, Alex (22) was diagnosed with severe allergies to eggs as a toddler. So I had to learn to cook and bake food without eggs. (Remember that egg beaters is egg whites with yellow food coloring so you can not use this as a substitute for eggs.) This cookie recipe is so easy and better yet; so tasty! After decorating I place these cookies into individual cellophane bags adorned with ribbons and have as take home gifts for guest.
