My kids thought the chocolate cookies on their own were a bit plain….so we jazzed them up a bit and made them Sandwich Cookies. Delicious!

I adapted this recipe from the Everyday Food Magazine.

Dairy, Egg, and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
3/4 cup dairy-free cocoa
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 sticks of Earth Balance (dairy-free margarine)
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tbsp water

In a large bowl, cream dairy-free margarine and sugar until lightened in colour.
Beat in water until well combined.

creamed sugar, dairy free margarine and water

In another bowl, combine flour, dairy-free cocoa, salt and baking soda.
Slowly add dry to wet until combined.

dairy free cocoa, flour, salt, baking soda mixed into creamed sugar, dairy free  margarine and waterDivide dough in half and form into two disks.
Wrap each disk in plastic wrap.

When completely cooled, ice one side of cookie with Dairy Free Vanilla Icing, and press a similar cookie to make a Sandwich Cookie.
Put a spoonful of Dairy Free Vanilla Icing in a small plastic ziplock bag. Snip a tiny piece of one corner off. Squeeze icing out of hole to make small dots for the eyes or any other details on the cookies.

  1. These look great!! I bet they were a huge hit! I need to find a dairy & soy free margarine to bake with… oh the joys of food allergies. :/ Honestly, I don’t do much baking for myself, I find it’s so much work.. After taking care of my family & doing all their baking & cooking, I just don’t bother. *blush*

    • Hi Carla- Earth Balance makes a dairy and soy free margarine. It comes in a tub. I have seen it at Foodland. (Actually, I enquired if they could get Earth Balance in for me and they did. Now most grocery stores sell it.) Just ask your local grocery store to get it in for you. Hope that gets you baking! ~Susan H.
