Just wondering if anyone has been successful at modifying a pfeffernusse recipe? We are only egg-free, not dairy/soy free, but having subbed for dairy/soy for a long time, I haven't found a significant difference between dairy/soy and their substitutes, so if your experience has been with more than egg-free, I'd like your insights too.<br><br>
The recipe my friend shared has eggs in it, and is supposed to be refrigerated for up to a week before making the cookies. I have modified recipes using the flax/oil egg substitution, and do have Ener-G egg replacer too. I'm just uncertain whether *any* egg substitute will work right after a week mixed with the other ingredients anyway .... don't want to waste all that dough. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Hoping someone else has experience with this and can give me encouragement or guidance. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Chia into a gel is supposed to be an egg replacer and can alone sit in the fridge. I bet it would work. I love thoe kind of cookies. My great great grandmother always made then in Germany, ways back.<br>
We are egg free. Let me know how it goes.

I get bulk chia seeds on ebay. I have requested my local health foor store to carry some and it is way to pricey there for my daily use.<br><br>
I have never used it in baking though. I just got a book on using it. It does alotof the same things that flax does, so it may be just as good to as the flax? I will read up on it since I am needing to bake with the chia some time.
