"Terrific! Love that this recipe makes just over a dozen cookies. I cracked 1 large egg in a Pyrex liquid measuring cup and beat it with a fork. It came to about 2 Tbs. 1/4 of a cup is 4 Tbs so 2 Tbs was easy to read in the liquid measuring cup as it is half way up to the 1/4 cup mark. I do believe the recipe is correct calling for 2 Tbs beaten egg. Beat the egg ( or be it eggs if they are smaller) and measure out 2 Tbs. That is what I tried. I do believe you could use 2 Tbs of egg substitute like Egg Beaters as one reviewer suggested. I know mine came out great. :)"

"These are great. The recipe is cut way down so that you only end up with 14 cookies, (which I love) so I used an egg white and it worked great. The 2 T is most likely egg beaters or similar product."
