The downside is, that these cookies do not last that long in our house. They are probably my children’s favorite cookie and the most requested baked goodies around here.

Here’s an idea ~

You know, cookies in general (especially these Chocolate Chip Pretzel Cookies) make a great gift from the kitchen. Wrap them up in a cute little tin or box with a simple bow and you’ll have a homemade treat to give at Christmas, birthdays or just because. So go bake a batch or two, keep one for yourself and give some away to your friends, family, co-workers and your children’s teachers.

Don’t forget those bake sales coming up, these would be great and so would my other favorite baked treat, an Apple Pound Cake!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 sticks butter (3/4 cup) Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 3/4 cup Light Brown Sugar, firmly packed (can also use Dark Brown Sugar for a deeper flavor)

  • 2 cups Pretzels, crushed (about 3 cups not crushed)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, using a mixer, beat the softened Butter with the Sugars until creamy.
  3. Add the Eggs and blend until well combined. Mix in the Vanilla.
  4. Mix in the Flour, Baking Soda and Salt and blend until well combined (using the mixer up to this point).
  5. Fold in the Chocolate Chips and crushed Pretzels and combine to mix in well.
  6. Using a 1 inch cookie scoop or by the tablespoon, drop the cookie dough about 2 inches apart on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  7. Bake in a 350°F preheated oven for about 12 - 15 minutes or until cookies are just starting to color.
  8. Bake in batches.

Notes

For a soft cookie, check at 10 minutes, for a crispier cookie, it can take up to 18 minutes. Times vary according to oven temperatures. Always start checking at the earliest time and adjust accordingly.Adapted from The Southern Cookie Book

    1. I hope y’all enjoy them! P.S. if you really want to go crazy, you could add in some Peanut Butter chips too 😉

  1. Ummm I wish I could eat these through the screen right now! They look amazing! And great job with the photography ????

    1. Ah, thank you Amanda! If you want to eat them through the screen, then I suppose I’ve done my job well 😉

  2. What a good idea! I love the concept of putting the salty pretzel with the sweetness of the chocolate. The only problem is it would probably make me eat more in one sitting because I wouldn’t get so sugar overloaded! I suppose there could be worse problems. 🙂
