jewish cookies

my mom gave me a recipe for my favorite christmas cookies that i'm going to attempt to veganise. it calls for baking ammonia (ammonium carbonate), something that supposedly is used in scandinavian cooking to make cookies crisp. i have no idea where to find this stuff. any ideas? below is the original recipe. any advice on what kind of egg replacers i should use would be greatly appreciated. these are very thin, hard, crisp cookies.

200 g or 7 oz butter or margarine
3 dl or 1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cardamom seeds
2 eggs
1 tsp baking ammonia
barely 7 dl or 3 cups flour
a little water
1/3 pearl sugar (raw sugar would probably work too)
1 stick cinnamon (crushed)

put margarine and sugar in a bowl. work together until smooth. add cinnamon, cardamom and eggs. mix the baking ammonia with the flour. when throughly mixed in, pour in the flour/baking ammonia mix into the bowl and work together. put the dough in the fridge over night. roll out very thin with a rolling pin. use cookie cutters to cut out cookies. brush the top of each cookie with water and decorate with pearl sugar (or raw sugar) and the crushed cinnamon stick. bake each cookie sheet for about 5 minutes on 200 degrees celsius or 390 degrees farenheit.
