I liked these but I didn't follow the recipe down to a tee. I took on other peoples comments about using milk so instead of water I used Milk (about 4tbsp). I also replaced caster sugar with brown sugar, marg with olive spread and vanilla essence with vanilla coffee syrup. I also added mini chocolate eggs into the mix. (before baking I also added an extra ingredient that helps with my husbands' arthritis *go figure*). I also rolled into balls and pressed down with a fork. the mixture was quite wet at this stage so I just dipped my hands in flour - worked a treat. These turned out yummy, crumbly but soft in the middle. Husband says they were perfect and wants more.

It’s a very dry mixture which needed much more milk to bring together. I didn’t love them.

My husband and I have been in isolation for almost two weeks and our snacks ran out a couple of days ago. I started googling egg free baking recipes and this came up. Made them with the bits and pieces that I had in my cupboard and they turned out really well!! Didn't have any vanilla extract so didn't add that. I found that I need three times the water that the recipe says to get it to the right consistency for rolling out and cutting shapes from. Recipe was really easy to follow and makes really good cookies.

I used green and blacks chocolate for chips and added the cocoa and they came out great. Little bit soft in the middle still but more biscuity than a regular squishy cookie. Like the person before I rolled them into balls which I then flattened (with my fingers). I tried a few rolling them out and cutting them but these ones didn't come out as well.

These are great and very quick and easy. I made these into Daim Bar cookies by chopping up 3 Daim bars! I used milk as suggested. If, like me you like things to be less faffy, then don’t bother rolling out the dough. I just rolled the mixture into small balls by hand then flattened a bit with a damp fork. Worked fine. Space them out on the trays as they do spread when baking.

It depends on how long you cook them and how thin you make them, mostly soft though

add milk to make it more rich instead of water and a spoon of nutella for extra chocolaty goodness
