Frequently asked questions
Which butter do you use for the cookies?
I use the Stork ‘perfect for baking’ 250g gold packet butter which is naturally dairy free and available in most major UK supermarkets. If you can’t get hold of this butter, it’s always best to use a hard dairy free butter block instead of a soft spread for the perfect cookie texture. Note: This is the only Stork butter that doesn’t contain milk so be careful to pick up the right packet.
Which dairy free mini eggs do you use?
I use the Doisy and Dam Dark Chocolate Eggs which are vegan and do not contain any gluten.
How long will these cookies last?
These cookies will last in an airtight container for up to 3 days however, are always best served on the day you make them.
Which dairy free chocolate do you use in the cookies?
Any dairy free chocolate will work for this recipe. I prefer to use larger chunks of broken up dairy free chocolate instead of chocolate chips and my favourite is the Nomo Chocolate.
Can I freeze the cookie dough?
This cookie dough recipe is suitable for freezing. Just freeze the dough in balls and cook from frozen for a few minutes longer than the recipe states.
