Thanks a lot for all your support. I never thought eggless bakes would become this popular. Thanks for all your comments, likes and messages. Lot of new friends via this baking event too. I don’t know why I didn’t post them earlier. Better late than never. For me this event is a learning process. Next week I will be posting some interesting stuff which I learnt from the BM group.

Ok now coming back to the post, I think all of us are enjoying the spring break. :-) If you are planning any baking activity with kids, this would be your perfect choice. A simple cookie where in the kids can help you with creating thumb impression and fill the holes with jam. This time I am using apple sauce as an egg replacer. I took the base recipe from food network website. But I replaced the egg though and also I didn’t bake along with jam. I baked the cookies first and then filled it with hot jam.

  • Let it cool. Meanwhile microwave the jam for a minute and add the jam in the middle of the cookie where we did the thumb impression.
