..Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Cookies

December 12, 2011

It's recipe day for the "Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap!

I can't wait to check out my swappers recipes because they were SO good!  I have another cookie exchange this Wednesday and I am definitely going to be trying out one or two to bring to the party :)  Below you will find the recipe for the chocolate chip-peanut butter-pretzel cookies I made.  I had seen pictures of cookies like this floating around and they seemed simple enough (basic choc-chip cookie recipe with pb chips and crushed pretzels thrown in there).

The following blogs were my cookie recipients:

Aislinn from The Toasted Sprinkle
Shannon from Family Bites
Liz from Southern Charm

My cookies came from:
Georgie at Georgie Cakes (you can also see her amazing cookies here)
Erin from Erin's Food Files (her's were so cutely wrapped I almost didn't open the package!)
Kristen from A Healthy Balance (her oatmeal chocolate chunk's didn't stand a chance against Mike.  They were gone in about 5 minutes). 

1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. of salt
1/4 tsp. of baking soda
1/2 cup of butter at room temperature
1/2 cup of tightly packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup of granulated sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup milk chocolate chips
3/4 cup peanut butter chips
3/4 cup crushed pretzel pieces (I used "snaps")
Sea Salt

  1. In a one bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl, beat the butter and sugars together then slowly add the egg and vanilla extract.  Slowly add in the flour mixture and mix until they are completely combined.
  3. Stir in the chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and crushed pretzels then cover and refrigerate for until the dough is firm enough to work with (1 hour or less).
  4. Preheat the oven to 350. Scoop tablespoon size balls of dough onto baking sheet and sprinkle with salt. Bake for 10 minutes.
