I'm looking for some non-dairy dessert tips for a synagogue potluck coming up. The meal is kosher meat, so it has to be dairy, although not necessarily with all kosher-certified ingredients.)
I'm thinking of baking chocolate chip cookies (with bittersweet, not milk chocolate chips) and an apple cake. I'm pretty sure I can substitute margarine for butter, but am I wrong about that? Am I missing hidden dairy anywhere here? Do I need to rethink and come up with other things to bring? If so, any suggestions? Easy recipes only - I'm not the world's greatest baker!
I also need to make sure whatever I make will either keep for a week or freeze well, because I'll have to do the baking the weekend prior to the potluck.
(I figured this post belonged in Home Cooking, not Kosher, because lots of non-kosher-keeping folks like vegans and the lactose-intolerant would have non-dairy expertise.)
