Do all cookies have dairy in them?
Luckily, there are lots of options for dairy free cookies! You can substitute dairy free butter, like with my Dairy-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies, or use coconut oil or another vegetable oil.
Why are my gluten-free cookies so dry?
There can be several reasons why your gluten-free cookies are coming out dry:
- Overmixing the dough: Overmixing the dough can cause gluten-free baked goods to become dry and crumbly.
- Using the wrong flour: Not all gluten-free flours are created equal. Some flours absorb more liquid than others, which can result in dry baked goods.
- Not using enough fat: Gluten-free flours typically need more fat to help create a moist and tender cookie. If you don't use enough fat in your recipe, your cookies will be dry.
- Overbaking: Baking the cookies for too long can cause them to become dry. A gluten-free cookie recipe can often bake faster than traditional cookies, so keep an eye on them in the oven.
- Not using enough liquid: Gluten-free doughs can be dry and crumbly, so it is important to add enough liquid to create a smooth and cohesive dough with the perfect texture.
Try adjusting the recipe to see if one of these issues is the cause of your dry cookies. You'll be well on your way to making an amazing gluten free cookies recipe!
Can celiacs eat gluten-free cookies?
If cookies or their ingredients are labeled as gluten-free, it means that they do not contain gluten and should be safe for celiacs to eat. However, it's always important for celiacs to check the ingredients list and make sure the cookie has been produced in a dedicated gluten-free facility to minimize the risk of cross-contamination.
