In my previous post I had mentioned that I had to bake cookies for my son’s class. This was the other cookie I baked for his friends. I used this recipe, but instead of using silken tofu as the egg replacement, I used EnerG egg replacer powder. The instructions in the EnerG box mention that it does not work well with store bought mixes. I took a chance anyway and was surprised that the cookies came out so well. These cookies were also chewy and did not spread as much as the silken tofu ones. Last time I had used Duncan Hines cake mix and this time I used Betty Crocker’s german chocolate cake mix and I felt that the latter ones had a smell which I didn’t relish. I think the flavorings in the Betty Crocker cake mix gave that smell. Nobody else could really feel it. I’m known for my exceptional “nose-power”. So the next time I bake these cookies I’m definitely going to use Duncan Hines. Also this time I used dried cranberries instead of raisins, reduced the amount of chocolate chips and increased the quantity of dried fruit.
