I followed the directions exactly and these cookies were delicious. For me 1/2" thickness was easier to cut and made cleaner cut cookies. Great recipe! Read More

This was the first time I ever made a vegan cookie! I thought the consistency was great but I will add more spices next time. I couldn t taste the difference between this and a cookie made with butter. Also the 2 hours of chilling time didn t do much in my opinion so next time I will probably only chill if I m having trouble rolling it out. Read More

I'm not vegan, but my husband's grandparents are. I found this recipe to make for them, and they are so good! I didn't have time to cool them, so I rolled them out in balls, rolled the balls in sugar, and then pressed them flat with the bottom of a glass before baking them. Read More

Wonderful! Super easy and tasty. I used daiya soy-free dairy-free "butter" instead of coconut oil. Read More

Really good wasn't expecting much but ended up loving the cookies (and the dough??) The third time I made them I forgot to pick up molasses and so substituted it with maple syrup and a few ground cloves still good. Glad this recipe is so wonderful Read More

So I made quite a few substitutions for my dietary needs. First I used bob's mill 1 to 1 flour coconut sugar and blackstrap molasses. The result while making them was a very crumbly dough. But working it with my hands helped soften the coconut oil and make it a very firm dough. Chilling did not help as I couldn't roll it out without it breaking apart so I rolled them into individual balls pressed flat and cookie cut out. The result was a very dark only light sweet and kinda dry cookie. Next time I will add a little more wet ingredient. But for a first try it wasn't bad Read More

We cooked at 9 minutes because I prefer a chewier cookie and they were amazing. Be sure not to roll the dough too thin my men became amputees when I pulled them up from the cut out so I rolled them again and left them chubbier and they kept all their limbs. Read More

This dough was a bit challenging to work with as it broke/cracked easily. This recipe only made 10 cookies for me as I needed to leave the dough on the thicker side to keep it from cracking. I would agree with another reviewer who said they might try not chilling the dough at all next time. I love the aftertaste more than the cookie itself but I’m grateful for a vegan recipe! Read More
