I am so looking forward to trying these. I need a good cookie for the tea room menu.

BEING DAIRY FREE, WHAT WOULD YOU SUBSTITUTE FOR THE WHIPPING CREAM????? THANK YOU.

I’m not dairy free, so I haven’t tried it, but I think any kind of dairy free milk should work in place of the cream. Just be sure to start with only 2 Tbsp before adding more.

Most non dairy milks will not work as they are not thick enough to “whip up”. The best option is canned coconut milk.
You place a 14 ox can of coconut milk (ususally found in the asian foods section) in the refrigerator overnight. Also place bowl and beaters of the mixer in the refridgerator. The thick cream of the coconut milk wil float to the top of the can. Open the can and scoop the cream out into the refrigerated bowl (about 2/3 of the can) beat on high until whipped to perfection. 🙂 This does no led a coconut flavor as coconut milk generally has a very mild flavor.
follow all other recipe directions as specified.

Thanks, Kendra! For this recipe you don’t actually whip the cream though, so I think a non-dairy milk would work, it’s just for the icing. I have wanted to try the dairy-free whipped ‘cream’ for a while though, so thanks for the instructions. 🙂

Ahhhhh I should have read the steps for the filling also. oops. That’s what happens when I assume. I make a whipped filling for our oatmeal cream pies form canned coconut milk and it is dairy free, and gluten free, and soy free, and peanut free. LOL

No problem, it’s a great tip!! 🙂

Just made these with chocolate chips in the cookies. Yummy! Thanks for the great recipe!

The last time I made them I thought of adding mini chocolate chips, or using a chocolate filling, but decided to stick with the plan. 😉 I bet they are fantastic with chocolate chips in them though!

My son is also dairy free. Any ideas on whipping cream substitutes?

Sara……..Kendra had posted a method for making non dairy whipped topping a few comments back 🙂

Thanks, Gerry! Sara, you can also just use your favorite dairy-free milk, just may have to use a little less, just enough for a good consistency (a little thick is better).

A bit late, I realize, I thought I posted my review. These taste wonderful. Tried on non GF family members. My brother in law said they tasted better than the famous filled peanut butter cookies. I have never cared much for pbutter cookies but i could not quit eating these.

I agree, they are addicting, aren’t they? 🙂

Just made these. Wonderful. Made these for our lunch at church tomorrow for those of us that are gf. I think others will want our cookies, these are exceptional. Thanks for the great recipe!
February 3, 2014 at 2:12 pm
Haha, that’s when you hope that by saying “These are Gluten-Free” that no one else will want them. 😉 They really are a great cookie, glad that you think so too. 🙂

the non gfer’s did want my cookies, I had made cream puffs as well.

Can you leave out the peanut butter to make GF Oatmeal Cream Pies?
February 27, 2014 at 10:53 am
Leave the PB out of the cookies? I don’t think that would work…you’d have to add something in it’s place. You’re welcome to use a different filling though!

It made me think of Oatmeal Cream Pies which I miss and thought I could make them based on this recipe.
March 7, 2014 at 11:29 am
It might work, I’ve never had those cookies. If you try it, please let us know!

Wonder if almond butter would work. It has such a mild flavor. It tends to be just a tiny bit thinner than pbutter. I use it to make a paleo cookie and is very nice. Sun butter might work too since it is mild flavored as well. They just cost more. A number of stores have a grind your own almond butter spot.

I can’t begin to tell you how well received these cookies were!No one. No one knew they were GF! I even liked them and even though I’m GF,I mostly hate GF stuff! If you have a bread recipe this good, I will never eat anything else!!!!!! So good. I didn’t need to bring APF into to my house to impress my friends Thank you so much!!!

I am not a sweets person but I love to bake and I must say these cookies created a sensation at work. Everyone loves them even though they are GF. No one could tell. I have made these at least 7 times in the last year. Perfect every time. thanks for the awesome recipe.
July 20, 2015 at 7:49 am
Yeah!! These are seriously the most addicting cookie I’ve ever made. Glad to hear that they are always a hit with you too! 😀
