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!

(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. 🙂
