We have many friends with food allergies. We were looking for a good dessert recipe that we could share at potlucks that was gluten free, egg free and dairy free. These are simple cookies to make and they taste great!
Andrea commented that she really wanted tiramisu for dessert. We looked in three stores before finding lady finger cookies. We did not find gluten free ones at all. So we decided to try to make our own.
The recipe we tried was very easy. The cookies crisped up and are wonderful for dunking in hot drinks or just eating plain.
I discovered some date sugar at a discount store and really wanted to try it. I had read that you could interchange it with brown sugar, but it did not mix in as well as regular sugar did.
We decided to start with our favorite cookies and experiment. The cookies are soft and cake like, but very good! I thought they were a little to sweet, so next time I will reduce the sugars. But everyone else thought they were perfect.
These cookies work well with regular flour if you do not want them gluten free.
