I am very happy as I attempted to bake Ginger Cookies! My sis loves them whenever she is out she will buy ginger cookies. So I thought of making these Eggless Ginger Cookies for her :)…. She is not here but when I meet her next I will carry these Ginger Cookies as goodies for her!…… Well to be honest the ginger cookies turned out soft, neat and full of ginger aroma and flavor. Loved them will surely try them again.
My dad loved these Ginger Cookies. He almost ate half of them. I haven’t used egg but if you wish you could add egg. I have added 4 tbsp cranberry juice instead of egg. The secret of making cookies are please don’t overbake them unless you want hard cookies.
The best part of this Ginger Cookies are they are sugar free. I have utilized jaggery instead of sugar. Hence these are more healthier cookies. So lets proceed in making yum yum Ginger Cookies 🙂
Eggless Ginger Cookies Recipe and the printable version below:
