First successful wheat free cookies I’ve ever made, absolutely delicious. Have made a different version each week, for five weeks so far. I’ve varied the flavour - coffee, cinnamon, ginger and the ‘filling’ -raisins, chopped Brazil’s. Favourites are 25g choc chips mixed in the dough and the balls rolled in coconut before flattening. Thanks so much Dove’s farm.

First attempt looked more like rock buns but we're delicious. Second attempt was perfect. Easy to follow recipe and far nicer than shop bought biscuits.

This is a great recipe. I added some lactose free milk because I found the mixture a bit dry. This might be because I cooked it on tin foil instead of greasing the pan though. I also doubled the recipe to make some more cookies. So impressed they are soft and sweet, definitely going to make these again!

I've finally found a good cookie recipe after 2 years of GF baking mishaps. As others have said, the mix was a little dry but I added a splash of soya milk and they turned out fine. I didn't have quite enough chocolate so added peanuts which meant they were a little less sweet than I'd like, but I will definitely be making many more batches.

I made half the mixture but added a small whole egg, so the biscuits did spread. I substituted half the sugar for stevia , they were still a little too sweet for my taste so you could get away with less sugar. Very delicious though!

I tried baking them with my Mum as I wanted to make biscuits to eat with my lunch. They are the perfect example of a biscuit. Nice and crunchy on the outside and quite soft in the middle.

This is a great recipe! The cookies spread out just enough so they don’t merge and it doesn’t just become a layer of thick crumbs. They taste great and haven’t found any other recipe like it! Definitely recommend them and will be making them again soon!

These cookies taste amazing! I think the whole batch was eaten within 2 days! I used 1.5 eggs to reach the perfect consistency and cornstarch instead of Xantham gum as I couldn't find any anywhere. Will definitely be making these again!

Baked these today withy 4 year old and they were a hit! I used two eggs after reading the review on here, but needed to add more flour at the end. Baked for 18mins and they were perfect. Quite cakey in the middle but when you’re gluten free you aren’t that fussy! Added marshmallows to the tops of a few which was nice. Will definitely bake again.

Made these with egg replacer as we have an egg allergy in the family. I also used dark chocolate chunks instead of chocolate chips. They have been a complete hit

Made these cookies and they’re lovely. Great activity for kids too. My only problem was the consistency when I only used one egg. With two it was perfect. I also expected them to flatten out more but not too bothered about that.

Sadly I was really disappointed with these cookies - not because of the taste, but because they didn't flatten out into cookies during the cooking time and just remained as balls of dough, ending up looking more like rock cakes! Whenever I've made cookies in the past its been with butter or a spread rather than oil - this recipe doesn't specify a type of oil so I just used the veg oil I had to hand, so I don't know if it was that that was the problem. I also found that the dough was extremely dry when I mixed it and so had to add extra oil for the dough to bind. I used all Doves other GF ingredients so not really sure why it didn't work, but after 15 mins of the cooking time I just had to take the cookies out and try and flatten them manually before they looked more like rock cakes. I'm a fairly experienced GF baker and always make sure I'm accurate with quantities when following a new recipe so very disappointed these didn't work.

Hi. Sorry to hear of your disappointment.  We are unsure as to what has gone wrong here with your cookies, using vegetable oil is fine and if it helps please see our YouTube video https://youtu.be/BHecroVIzS0 for extra guidance.  Best wishes, Doves Farm.

Very yummy and easy to make. I swapped the bicarb and xanthan for 1tsp baking powder and they tasted very yummy. Made 7 very large cookies with the above quantities, and will try different combinations with fudge, cranberries, etc next time.
