Yes, these peanut butter cookies also freeze well! For the most delicious results, freeze the dough balls before baking. When you're ready to enjoy them, remove the balls from the freezer and bake. Already baked cookies are best frozen in a sealed freezer-safe bag or container, where they keep fresh for up to 3-6 months when stored properly.

Peanut Butter Cookies
- Mix peanut butter and sugar with a hand mixer until creamy. Mix in vegetable milk and vanilla. Once creamy, add flour, baking powder, and salt. Optionally fold in chopped nuts such as walnuts or peanuts.
- Preheat your oven to 455°F / 180°C. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
- Use about 1 heaping tablespoon of dough per peanut butter cookie. For even cookie dough balls I like to scoop the dough with an ice cream scoop. Shape the dough into balls with your hands.
- Place balls on a baking sheet, spacing each a few inches apart. Flatten crosswise with a fork.
- Bake in preheated oven for about 10 to 15 minutes until golden brown. Depending on the oven, baking time may vary, so better keep an eye on the peanut butter cookies after 8 minutes. Then remove and let cool on a cooling rack.
- Sprinkle with sea salt, and/or drizzle with chocolate syrup if wished. Enjoy!
