Tips

Diamond Shaped Cookies

Diamond Shaped Cookies

For diamond-shaped cookies, first make straight parallel cuts [1 to 1 1/2 inches:4 cm] apart down the length of the pan. Then, make diagonal cuts across the straight cuts [1 to 1 1/2 inches:4 cm] apart, forming a diamond pattern.


Egg Allergy - Flax seed meal eggs

Egg Allergy - Flax seed meal eggs

My son is allergic to eggs and we have found that flax seed meal can be used as a substitute. One egg equals 1 tablespoon flax meal plus 3 tablespoons water. It is best to grind the flax seed right before you plan to use it. Mix the flax seed meal with the water and then refrigerate for 15 minutes to let it set. Then use in the recipe. You can use the ratio to make as many "flax eggs" as you will need.
