Cookies are delicious; everybody knows that. Honestly though, there are tons of people that can’t eat dairy and therefore cannot eat the majority of cookies put in front of their face. This is a travesty. With this recipe, you can brighten the day of someone who is lactose intolerant/vegan/picky with very little effort. Be nice, but not too nice, you know. That’s what Gandhi would say.

Step 7

Form into balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. The dough will be thick and that’s fine!

#SpoonTip: If you want less cake-like cookies, mash down the dough balls a bit with you palm to get flatter, mushier cookies.
