You might not need them and that's totally fine, but one of the best things about having these dairy free cookie recipes on hand is that they can be enjoyed by everyone.
I try and make sure that I have options that are safe for everyone to enjoy when I'm sharing desserts or treats at parties, family gatherings, and events.

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!
