Substituting Xanthan Gum And Guar Gum?

Recommended Posts

Okay so I'm not sure if this has been posted elsewhere but is anyone able to tell me if I can use xanthan gum instead of guar gum in a cookie recipe? The recipe calls for guar but I've never seen it where I live and only have xanthan. Do I just put in the same amount?

Thanks

Thanks!! I didn't see the reply until I had put the dough in the fridge but went ahead and just substituted it hoping for the best. Haven't rolled the cookies out yet or anything but the dough was fantastic! Pretty sure I now love xanthan gum!!!
