I loved peanut butter, honey and banana sandwiches as a kid and I still occasionally enjoy them as an adult. I saw these Peanut Butter Banana and Honey Cookies a while back and I knew I had to give them a try. I thought the turned out pretty good. Yes, they were yummy, and yes they tasted just like a PB&H sandwich. I think these are great to treat the kids to or just to change things up a bit.
Can Cookie Dough Be Frozen?

Form the dough into a ball and place in an airtight container or a heavy duty freezer bag.

When frozen, transfer to a heavy duty freezer bag.
This method allows you to take out the desired number of cookies and bake without thawing the whole batch.
