I do not use eggs and I baked these, I used milk instead of water to make them a bit more rich and used cocoa powder. Amazing results! Me and my husband loved them so much, these are now a staple in the house and need to be stocked at all times! So easy too!

I did a mixture this timv of gluten free flour and normal flour, they were both plain but I added 1+1/2 tsp of baking powder. They did spread but not much, tasted much like shortbread. I have recomended it to many a friend. A thumbs up from me.

I made these cookies with no coco powder and did them plain with almonds on top and I used gluten free self raising flour but they expanded way to much so if u r doing it with gluten free self raising flour then do not add baking powder

I made these but instead of a tablespoon of water & cocoa I added a tablespoon of Nutella which gave them a lovely soft chewy texture like cookies with a hint of nut yum.

Are the cookies soft or crispy?

add milk to make it more rich instead of water and a spoon of nutella for extra chocolaty goodness
