Hi, can I order cookies for Purim from a woman if she keeps kosher and is shomer shabbos even if she doesn’t have a hechsher? Also, the cookies are vegan. Thank you!
Yes, if you trust the lady you can order cookies from her, just as you would eat at her house.
Although past experience has shown that for shechita and for institutions, there is no substitute for external supervision, home-made cookies are a different story.
