Sour Cream Cookies (eggless)

Since a good number of people in my family doesn’t eat eggs, I’m always on the lookout for egg-less dessert recipes.  This one came out well, with a strong spiced flavor.  Usually in egg-less cakes and cookies, I taste baking soda.  In this one, you can’t taste it, which is really nice.  The only other comment I have is that I found them a little dry.  I worked around it by putting an Amaretto Chocolate Glaze on top, which worked out nicely!


1/4 cup butte, room temperature
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 tbsp lemon juice
1/8 cup sour cream
pinches of nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
3 tbsp milk
1 cup all purpose flour


1.  Cream the butter and brown sugar together.

2.  Mix in the vanilla, lemon, sour cream, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, baking soda, and baking powder.

3.  Add 1 tbsp of milk and mix well.  Add 1/3 cup flour and mix well.  Repeat two more time until all of the milk and flour is incorporated.

4.  Place ~1 tsp of dough on a baking tray / cookie sheet, placing them about 2 inches apart, and flatten them slightly.  (You can also use a cookie press, which is what I did)

5.  Bake them for 12-15 mins at 350 F until they are light brown on top.  Wait about 5 mins and then remove them from the baking tray.

6.  Optional: Top with glaze, jam, or anything else!  I used Amaretto Chocolate Glaze.
