Everyone Gather ‘Round the Cookie Table

Do you have a favorite cookie in mind, but you just recently became vegan or realized you’re gluten-free? No one should have to sacrifice their sweet tooth for their dietary restrictions.

Making a Recipe Vegan

When it comes to transforming a traditional holiday cookie into vegan-friendly, you’ll likely only be looking for alternatives to the butter and eggs in the recipe. The butter acts as a helpful fat that keeps the cookie thick and causes the cookie to rise while the eggs hold everything together and create that familiar chewiness we love.

Every recipe will call for different types of fats, so finding the right alternative will sometimes involve a bit of trial and error.

Here are a few ways to vegan-ize your cookie recipe:

  • Utilize Crisco instead of butter when possible.
  • Mixing a tablespoon of flaxseed oil with three tablespoons of water and letting it sit can replace eggs.
  • Use less oil in place of butter because of its water content.
  • Blending around 33% coconut oil with about 67% canola oil could give you the right fatty ratio.
  • Make your batter thicker by using less water if you’re taking out eggs.

Taking Care of That Gluten

Beyond Celiac found that around 1% of the world has been diagnosed with celiac disease, and this number could be higher in the U.S. As you approach the holiday season with the best cookies this town has ever seen, you could also bake for a friend and family member whose body reacts adversely to the gluten protein.

To help the gluten-free person in your life in making their world a little more sweet, the best way to replace all-purpose flour in your cookies is to add an extra egg or egg yolk to the mixture. In addition to brown rice flour or almond flour, an extra egg or yolk can add the leavening you need.

If you’ve had a gluten-free cookie in the past and all that comes to your mind now is a chalky texture, try letting your batter sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. This can help the liquids soak in so when you bite down, you still get to enjoy that moist, creamy finish.
