Cookie recipe with NO eggs, flour, or milk?

I know, it's a crazy idea, but I'm trying to bake cookies for someone who is allergic to eggs, flour, and milk. Anyone out there have a recipe that works with good substitutes? Or can you suggest any dessert that omits these ingredients?

  1. can they eat rice flour? you could make shortbread with butter, sugar, pinch of salt and rice flour

    macaroons?

    I do not know of any recipes off hand, but you can bake with amaranth, etc.

    dessert - dark chocolate almond bark, crustless apple or pear crumble, mango lassi (with yogurt or soy milk)

      1. My roommate used to use a teaspoon of lecithin (thick gooey stuff you can from a health food store) as a binder for her oatmeal cookies, instead of egg. Beware it will not wash up easily if you let it dry out on your tools.

        1. For cookies, macaroons. For non-egg, dairy or flour or desserts, nut brittle or pears poached in wine.

          1. re: sidwich

            Traditional macaroons are almost always made with egg whites.

          2. I used to run a mailing list for special-needs recipes and I gathered up a few which were basically no-anything. There's a recipe for sesame raisin cookies on allrecipes.com that uses apple juice and rice flour...
