Hard -Boiled Egg Chocolate Cookies

Lately i have been seeing recipes which use ingredients which are not the usual - making cookies or linzetorte with hard-boiled eggs!!!Although i am traditionally sorting comfort foods of yesteryears, i too am game to give new pairing of ingredients a go. The cookies were accepted well, they were chewy and fluffy. This recipe will come in very handy especially for Malaysians who have just attended a Malay Wedding, coming home with hard-boiled eggs.


2 3/4 cups all purpose bleached flour
8 ounces cold unsalted butter, cut into small chunks (16 tablespoons)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 hard boiled egg, cut into big chunks
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Large handful of chocolate chips


Combine flour and butter in food processor.
Pulse until mixture is mealy and coarse.
Add the salt and baking soda and pulse to mix.
Add both sugars and hard boiled egg. Pulse again until mixture is mealy looking.
Add in the raw egg and vanilla and pulse until mixture just begins to come together.

Dump mixture into a bowl, add chocolate chips and using a 1 1/2 oz ice-cream scoop, scoop mixture onto lined baking sheets, spacing them 2 inches apart.
(Egg whites will be visible in dough and will disappear as the cookies bake)

Bake at preheated 350 degrees F. (convection) for 12 - 15 minutes or until cookies appear lightly browned around edges.
Let cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes then transfer to rack to finish cooling.

Important: Let cool completely before serving. The texture gets better as the cookies cool. It’s even better if you cool the cookies, freeze them, then thaw them.

Makes 20 cookies

Perhaps it would be polite and ethical to always credit your recipe source (I notice you never do this)... especially when you copy word for word ; )
I mean we would like people to return the courtesy with your own recipes right?

Just a thought...

that's a really unusual ingredient to bake cookies... quite surprise i must say.

lilyng said...


I do not claim recipes are mine, as i have often mentioned that i can cook up something with whatever ingredients i have but i can never bake without a recipe. I am sharing my experience with recipes i have found, from cookbooks or the internet, and if it is a good recipe, i will share it and if the recipe does not turn out, do i discredit? Just a thought.

Karen said...

Such is the case, then why so afraid to give due credit to original author, who experimented and worked on the recipe? Not discrediting does make it right not to credit. Just another thought...

Is it really so difficult to simply mention, I saw this recipe from "here", tried it... liked / not liked it...

lilyng said...


you must be one of those loose cannons. In fact, i should not even bother to respond to your comments.

I am not afraid to give credit when credit is due but there are many factors which i think i need not explain to you.

I am too old to be go back to school to get a lesson on how and what to write. yes, it is difficult to write as my blog is not a food blog but a blog of recipes actually meant for my own reference.

Hi Lily,

I check your posting almost everyday and have cooked many wonderful dishes from the recipes you posted. Thank you for putting these recipes together, I really appreciate that you take the time to do it, out of your passion in cooking. I, too, love to cook.
I feel that you have been unfairly critisized by Karen. In fact, I want to back you up by saying that you did give credit to people who share recipes with you, I have read it multiple times in your posting. Keep up the good work!


lilyng said...


i thank you to come to support me. i was very disturbed by these unfounded comments and you make my day.

thank you

I also agree with LK. I do not understand why Karen likes to makes these negative statements. Karen should send it via a personal messege. We should be grateful that Lily shares tips and recipies with us. Most people will omit the special ingredients.

lilyng said...


thanks for having positive vibes for me. i too agree with you that there are recipes which are not complete and special ingredients are intentionally left out.

Dear Lily,

You are most generous to share your recipes with us. Thanks a million!! I have used many of your recipes and received many compliments. Please ignore all the nuisance comments from Karen. She's getting a kick out of seeing your reactions. She obviously has too much time on her hands. Don't upset yourself with the negative energy she's giving out. Keep up the good work. You're wonderful.

Angie said...

Keep the nice recipes coming! And don't worry about the negative comments. Your hard work posting all the yummy recipes is greatly appreciated. Thank you for all the great tips!

Hi Lily,

Thank you for posting your recipes. I have enjoyed them through my girlfriend's cooking.

As a side note to Karen: please post negative comments elsewhere, as this is not the point of this website. There is really no reason to follow APA citation guidelines for a recipe blog. Please consider applying your education to something of greater significance. Maybe you could teach a course on culinary writing?

If we can all agree to leave the cooking to Lily, we can agree to leave the writing to Karen.

Best to you all.

Please don't be discouraged by some negative comments. I absolutely LOVE your blog and check in everyday. Also I learned my first Pandan Chiffon Cake from you. Thank you again!!!

Hi Lily,
I gave you the churros recipe. As you have found out there are a lot of recipes on the internet that just DO NOT WORK. There are people claiming that their recipe is the correct one for such and such a dish when it is not traditional at all and/or DOES NOT WORK. I think it is about time that food chroniclers like yourself, (I do not call you a blogger) tell the truth about recipes which are failures.

That is called 'fair comment'; because if someone posts a recipe on the internet they should be prepared for it to be tested by others, and commented upon.

lilyng said...

I would like to give credit to Karen for her comment. Now, i know that i have many nice friends who believe in me although i might not have good manners.

I thank all bloggers and friends who shared their recipes.

Ube said...

I totally support and appreciate your hard work you put forth in your blog. Lots of work involved indeed! Sometimes you cannot ignore negative comments and have to do something about them. You have been such an inspiration to me. Keep up the good work and do not take negative comments personally. That’s all I can say. I cannot thank you enough for sharing all the innovative work you shared with us just to name a few the use of a microwave in baking cake and candied peanuts and sesame seeds. More power to you.

Hi Lily,
I am one of your fans, don't listen to negative comment, I remember Yochana cake delight always get negative comment also, I hope this negative comment from Karen does not discouraged you to post a recipe. May be you can used comment moderation to filter crazy people , jealous people, loony people,......
Good luck.....

Akau said...

Hi Lily

You have put in tremendous amount of effort to ensure that the recipes posted could be easily followed and the end result is the desired outcome.

If Karen is interested in an academic pursuit where a biliography of all the references used is listed, she can do it on her blog.

I believe your blog is to share your unselfish experience on culinary delights so that we could benefit from your hardwork and passion for cooking.

Hey Lily!
Thanks for posting this recipe on here! I really appreciate it, i've never thought boiled eggs would ever be used in cookies. I'm going to try and make this tommorow. Thanks again!

I think either one are right. Karen is too harsh and offensive. Lily would have oblige if Karen has put it in a graceful manner. But lily should not run away from karen's comments either, its really not difficult to give credit to the source you get your recipe from, it a respect.

Just a passerby.

I happen to stumble on this recipe, though I've been visiting Lily's blog for some other recipes. I know it's an old post but I still wants to say something.
Yes, it's good to give credits to others but hey, not everyone's has so much free time to write down everything! i think Lily's doing an awesome job sharing the recipes she has and I am eternally grateful to her for sharing such fantastic recipes. Kudos Lily and regardless of what others might say, please keep up the good work. You're an inspiration for me to cook despite my busy work schedule. Really, thank you.
