Combine vegan butter (shortening), brown sugar, vegan milk, PB, and vanilla in electric mixer, beat at medium speed until blended. Add in your egg substitute and beat in. 


Combine flour, salt, and baking soda in separate bowl. Once your ingredients are all in separate bowl, add and beat into the vegan butter mixture until blended but not over beaten.


Stir in vegan chocolate chips and/or nuts (optional). 


Drop rounded measured cookie dough 3 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheet. For measuring I used a ice cream scoop, depending on your desired cookie size you can use a small or regular size scoop. If you don't have an ice cream scoop use a tablespoon measure or spoon. 


Bake 15 minutes for a chewy cookies, 20 minutes for a crisp cookie. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet and then remove cookies to a rack to cool completely. 



Serve hot off the cookie sheet or cool and serve for dessert, snacks, and/or topped or sandwiched with vegan ice cream. Nothing is wrong when serving this cookie, enjoy!
