They are basically a chocolate chip cookie (or bar) that you add some peanut butter chips and broken pretzels to...next time I will be adding even more than the 1 1/2cups of pretzels and a little more sea salt.
They were amazing. I may have had one for breakfast. Protein? Eggs? Done.
To make these I basically adapted my long favorite PERFECT chocolate chip cookie recipe and here's you do it...
Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
(adapted to make pretzel/peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies)
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup mini semisweet
- 1 cup peanut butter chips
- 1 1/2 cups broken pretzels
- sea salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter with both sugars; beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low; add the salt, vanilla, and eggs. Beat until well mixed, about 1 minute. Add flour mixture; mix until just combined. Stir in the chips and pretzels.
- Drop heaping tablespoon-size balls of dough about 2 inches apart on baking sheets (or make them into bars by baking them in a 9 by 14 pan). Sprinkle with sea salt.
- Bake until cookies are golden around the edges, but still soft in the center, 8 to 10 minutes (if doing bars baking will take 25-30 minutes). Remove from oven, and let cool on baking sheet 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely. Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.
And I JUST finished my last custom costume order for the year. (I kinda hope). I feel so blessed to do what I do...and I am so thankful for each and every one of my LOVELY customers who push me and beg me and believe in me to do things.
I can't help but think of an email I got in Sept of last year asking me to make a Halloween costume for them...in the nicest way possible I told them that costume making was WAY over my skill set. And this year I made dozens. God is good. My customers are good. Life is good. I can't wait to see where I am next year.
And just a PSA...I will be cutting off custom orders for the rest of the year starting early November. So if you have one for me...please get it to me so I don't have to say no to later. :)
Thanks again for being lovely!
