Any idea how to veganize springerlies?

I'm trying to figure out a way to veganize a type of cookie called springerlies. These are very dense, heavy anise flavored cookies. The recipe calls for four eggs--they're practically egg cookies. So I'm feeling lost--I know of egg substitutes that will replace one or two eggs, but four?

Here's a nonvegan example recipe -- it's just basically flour, anise oil, sugar, baking soda, and four eggs.

Does anyone have ideas on how to make this vegan?

I don't think Energ-G would work for four eggs. Mashed banana would give it too strong of a flavor. Silken tofu might work, but I think it would probably be too gooey--these cookies are supposed to be really solid and hard, almost like biscotti. I'm out of ideas. :(

(The reason I'm asking is that my dad makes these every year from an old family recipe. He offered to try to make vegan ones with me this year, which is HUGE because he normally mocks my veganism. So I'd really like to be able to make them with him... but I have no idea how!)
