Sweet and Salty!

My daughters and I were having an after school snack the other day of pretzels and marshmallows.  Although I generally only crave sweet things, the combination of sweet and salty tasted so good.  So I had an idea! What would happen if you combined a salty pretzel with the most classic sweet around…chocolate chip cookies. Something wonderful…that’s what! They are yummy! Try them and let me know what you think!

JUMBO CHOCOLATE CHIP
PRETZEL COOKIES
(adapted from a recipe in Cookies Unlimited by Nick Malgieri)
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
8 Tbsp (1 stick) butter, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup broken pretzel pieces

In an electric mixer cream butter and sugars. Add egg and vanilla. In a small bowl combine flour, salt and baking soda.  Whisk to combine evenly.  Add to mixer and beat until combined.  Add chocolate chips and pretzel pieces.  Use an extra-large cookie scoop (or ice cream scoop) to drop cookies on a greased cookie sheet or one lined with Silpat.  Bake at 360 degrees for 15-16 minutes. Makes 12 jumbo cookies!

    yum, these sound AWESOME!! once steve and i made some cookie dough and put it on saltine crackers. i know it sounds horribly disgusting and we did feel sick-ish afterwards but in the moment it was really yummy. this sounds like a much better way to achieve the sweet/salt thing. 🙂
