Hard Boiled Egg Chocolate Chip Cookies

With summer here, I've been on a tuna salad kick. I like lots of hard boilded eggs in my tuna salad, so why not in cookies! This recipe is courtesy of Cookie Madness. The original recipe is below. I made a few changes- just eyeballed the extra 2 tablespoons of flour and sugar. I also used two hard boiled egg whites instead of one whole egg. The cookies turned out great! I will be making these again for sure after Easter when I have lots of leftover eggs.

1 1/3 cups plus 2 tablespoon (180 grams) all purpose flour
4 ounces (114 grams) cold unsalted butter – unsalted European style works well
1/2 (.5 ml) teaspoon salt
1/4 (1 ml) teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (70 gram) granulated sugar
1/4 cup (56 grams) brown sugar
1 hard boiled egg, shell removed
1/4 teaspoon (1 ml) vanilla extract
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 vanilla and pulse until mixture just begins to come together.
Dump mixture into a bowl, add chocolate chips and shape into two balls. You will see egg whites in dough – they’ll disappear as the cookies bake.
Bake on a parchment lined cookie sheet at 350 degrees F. for 20 minutes or until cookies appear lightly browned around edges. Let cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes then transfer to rack to finish cooling.
Yields 10 cookies.


  1. This is NEW to me using hard boiled in cookies. They are always found in my salads and sandwich...I wonder how it will taste.
