    That depends on what you used to substitute the eggs for in your cookie recipe.  One thing I love to substitute eggs with in my baking recipes is arrowroot powder.  It's full of B vitamins and gives baked goods that nice chew everyone loves.  Basically you use 1 tbs. of arrowroot mixed with 1 tbs. of room temp. or cold water for each egg you are substituting for. You can find arrowroot powder/flour at any health food store, some local grocery chains, and on the internet on websites such as amazon.  Hope this helps!

    I believe they need the fat from the eggs for moisture. Try put in mayonnaise or more oil.  (you won't taste the mayo)

    My wife and I use applesauce in place of eggs for baking. Certain things tend to be a bit denser than their egg-counterparts, but they're moist and delicious.
