Amazing Egg Chocolate Chip Cookies


Have you heard of the amazing egg chocolate chip cookies? The recipe comes from Anna of Cookie Madness and Rita of Clumbsy Cookie

It calls for hard-boiled egg, rather than raw egg, in the dough. It's sort of an old fashioned technique you don't hear about anymore. I tried researching the topic, but I couldn't find any information or history. It sounds kind of gross, doesn't it?

I had never heard of using hard-boiled egg in a cookie, so I had to try it.


These were very good cookies, and oh-so crumbly. Mine look more rugged than their cookies, and I think it's because I didn't process everything enough.

Give them a try and let me (or them) know what you think!

This is a great way to use up all of those leftover Easter eggs. Also, don't worry; you can't see the egg bits in the cookie.

Mmm, Ghiradelli bittersweet chocolate chips...


Sorry, that's all I have for now.

  8. So, I haven't heard of this before, but I did see it here and on Clumbsy Cookie. I doesn't sound appealing! I have to tell you I substituted some butter with pumkin in some chocolate chip cookies and it was actually okay. I don't eat cookies but I tried one and it was really good. I put one stick of unsalted butter and two heaping teaspoons of pumpkin in the batter and they were fabulous! I am getting to become more fearless. Yes, as for you comment, I have a diva on my hands!

  9. Hey I know that cookie! Glad you liked it. Also this wasn't just me and Anna, Katrina helped too (http://kevnkoi.blogspot.com/2008/10/amazing-hard-boiled-egg-chocolate-chip.html).
    The hard boiled egg thing usually scares people at first, but if you think about it, when you're eating cookies you're eating cookied eggs as well, lol. These are just a little bit more cooked.
    I've used cooked eggs not only on this cookie, but in some other recipes and in a bakery I was we used to even do a pie crust with them, it was really crunchy!
    Can't wait to see the last one, they were 3, weren't they?

  10. I have a recipe for scones that uses hard-boiled eggs, and I've always wanted to try it! How do these cookies compare to your other recipes?

  11. Anna was making these like crazy!! They look really good. I used to eat hard boiled eggs all the time before I was vegan. Maybe 4-5 eggs a day haha These would be good to send to Iraq. I bake for the soldiers every month, so I'll give these a shot.

  17. I saw that recipe before, I think, and was... curious. Heh. Those look really good though, I might just give them a shot.

  18. I've been meaning to try this..Are you sure you can't see the hard boiled egg because that would freak my family out?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Rita, yes, I have one more.

    Dana, I like the Ultimate ones better.

    Anna, can't wait!

    Candy, just make sure the eggs are processed enough. If you didn't tell your family, would they notice?

  22. Sorry, Em, but no, no, NO. There are all kinds of things that you could put in cookies that you could manage to camouflage, but WHY?

    The only possible reason for this is for those people who are terrified of salmonella from eating the raw egg in unbaked cookie dough. I love ya madly, but NO!

  23. I saw this one, but I just don't think I'm up for trying it. It sounds icky to me. Brave you!
