Cookies without eggs?

Do you know any easy-to-make cookie (or just dessert) recipes that have no eggs? Bonus points if there are no ingredients that would require a trip to the grocery store (no buttermilk, no special chocolate, no fancy egg-substitute, etc.).

I'd like to bake eggy-stink-free biscotti, but how?

Need help from experienced bakers: how do I get rid of the eggy smell that clings to otherwise delicious biscotti (and some other baked goods) after they come out of the oven? The only advice I have found is to add a teaspoon of honey to the batter. (I use your standard eggs, out of the shell) Does this work? What causes the eggy smell anyway? How do industrial biscotti-bakers avoid having the smell?

How do I use up 6 broken eggs quickly?

What can I make today with six unexpectedly broken eggs? The answers "two quiches" or "a huge omelet" aren't great choices for me as I had a frittata for breakfast and am feeling a little egged out. One or more savory dishes would be good, and it would be great if they froze well, although that isn't required. [more inside]

Why eggs? Why now?

In my family we've always said that if you have an intense craving for a food that you don't normally eat, it's because your body really needs something in it (and that all efforts should be made to acquire said food-- this has led to some funny stories). Following this (seeming) logic, I am curious if any nutritionists understand why I get insanely intense cravings (only about once every 6 weeks or so) for egg salad sandwiches. Because, you see, eggs normally make me really nauseated. Scrambled especially (I basically can't eat them, for whatever reason). But when I need egg salad BAD, it's literally the only food that appeals to me in the entire world. (And it's ALWAYS egg salad-- I don't have too many other of these sudden cravings.) It doesn't even need to be good egg salad. It can even be warm (yuck). But nothing else seems to fill the need. Any idea what might be in it that my body is so sorely missing? This is perplexing, since I have the cravings again tonight.

My eggs taste like fish, is this normal?

I usually buy brown cage free eggs and boil them in the morning for breakfast. Yesterday I bought cage free eggs with enhanced Vitamin E and Omega-3 and I tried them this morning and the yolks tasted very fishy and made me want to puke. Did I just get bad eggs or do all of these type eggs (omega3 and vitamin E enhanced eggs) taste this way? [more inside]

Why does only one egg crack in an egg cracking contest?

So every Easter my family has an egg cracking contest using hardboiled eggs. You pair off with a partner, smash your eggs together, and whoever's egg does not crack goes on to the next round until you are left with one winner. My question is, why does only one egg break? They never both crack, no matter how they are smashed together. [more inside]

why can't I peel an egg?

I've lost my ability to peel a hardboiled egg. Are the eggs different, or is my technique? I used to be able to take the shell and the icky membrane off in one fell swoop, but now things have changed, and I seem to mangle every egg I touch. If I eat any more bits of eggshell, I may calcify. Any hints from people who really like their egg salad?

egg substitution

So I'm making a yellow cake from a mix...I added the water and the oil, then reached into the refrigerator for eggs that weren't there. What will happen if I bake this without the eggs? Or is there any normal pantry item that I could substitute for them? All the substitution recommendations I can find online are like substituting whites for whole eggs and using those non-egg egg substitutes. I'm not going to leave the house. Can this cake be saved?
