View Full Version : Baking Powder in vegan cookies?

February 28th, 2012, 08:11 PM
I just found a vegan(non dairy, no eggs) sugar cookie recipe that I love but it has baking powder in the recipe. So the cookies rise and spread just a little and flatten after cooled. They still taste good and still look good just not as good as I would like. I am used to my cookies not changing at all when baked. I do freeze these cookies before baking for about 15 minutes.

So my question is do I need the baking powder in my cookies? What does it actually do for the cookies as in taste and texture wise? Thanks! Tanisha

Baking powder will rinse your sugar cookie because if you don't put one on it it will just look flat.
