  8. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes on baking sheets before transferring cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • To make a flax egg: To a small mixing bowl combine 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed with 2 ½ tablespoons water. Stir until smooth and let thicken for 5 minutes before using.
