How can I make regular cookie recipes without dairy?
These days you have a lot of options on how to cut out the dairy products from your regular cookie recipes. If you have a recipe that you really just love and don't want to stop making, don't worry, you can swap out the ingredients!
A lot of dairy free butters, cheeses, milk alternatives, and chocolate chips will tell you how much to use on the packaging if there is a difference when substituting for regular dairy products.
When baking you can use things like shortening as well instead of butter. Non-dairy milk alternatives are plentiful so there's no issue there when swapping out a bit of milk in baked goods like cookies!
