Cooking With Egg - Is This Ok?


Recommended Posts

Hi just a quick question to a kind and helpful person out there. We want to make some biscuits next week but can only find recipes with raw egg. Is it ok to use raw egg with the children as long as they do not eat the raw mixture (some hope!) and we cook the biscuits thoroughly? Failing that - does anyone have a recipe for short bread or biscuits that don't need egg but also that don't fall apart?


Thank you.

we also cook with eggs but have a really simple biscuit recipe that doesn't need eggs. The children love it and yummy biscuits every time!


4 oz (100g) soft butter or marg

2 oz (50g) castor sugar

5 oz (150g) self raising flour



Pre heat oven to 180 C and lightly grease two baking trays

Beat marg and gradually beat in sugar.

Mix in the flour


Bring mixture together with your hands to form a dough

Form dough into balls about the size of a walnut and place well apart on the baking trays.


Dip a fork in a little water and use this to flatten the biscuits.


Bake for 15-20 mins until pale golden, leave to cool.



The above ingredients makes about 16 biscuits
