These 9 amazing cookie recipes without butter or margarine will amaze you!
It’s pretty impressive how much times have changed. In the nearly four years since I started my blog, margarine (the old go-to sub for butter in non-dairy cookie recipes) has gone from totally-acceptable to something that people avoid as much as possible. Yes, I still use margarine – but only in recipes where you simply can’t avoid it – like pie crust, frosting, etc. But lately, because I listen to my readers, I’ve been minimizing my use of margarine as much as possible. In fact, almost all of the cookie (and all!) recipes in my upcoming cookbook call for oil, not margarine, unless I simply couldn’t find a way to make it work.
So I decided to gather my cookies without butter or margarine together into one handy post for y’all. I know you keep asking for it, plus I want to make sure you don’t miss any of these delicious options!

Useful tools for cookies:
It’s important to use the correct tools in your kitchen, in general, and especially for cookies. Here are my three must-haves:
Parchment paper: Spraying your cookie sheets can cause your cookies to spread too much – I always use parchment paper instead
Cookie sheets: Good quality cookie sheets are important for cookie baking. Don’t use the dark kind – they can cause the bottoms of your cookies to stick.
