Sweet and Salty Cookies

Sweet and Salty all at the same bite!  These cookies are a hit at our home.  Perfect recipe to get the kids involved.  I love to have my little boy in the kitchen.  Of course sampling is part of the fun but counting, measuring, and comparing are great kitchen skills.  These cookies are so good that they might become breakfast for some.  (not mentioning names in our house!)
Keep stirring!- AF

Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Pretzels, Oh My!

Sweet and Salty Cookies

1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour

1/2 t salt

1/4 t baking soda

1/2 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed

1/3 cup sugar

1 egg, beaten

1 t vanilla extract

1 cup milk chocolate chips

1/2 cup peanut butter chips

1/2 cup broken up pretzel pieces

Kosher salt

In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugars together on medium speed until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes). On low speed, slowly add the beaten egg and vanilla extract. Beat to combine, scrape down the sides of the bowl.

Add the flour mixture and completely beat ingredients.  Stir in the chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and pretzels.

For best results, cover and refrigerate for an hour.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Create well rounded tablespoonfuls of the dough and sprinkle with kosher salt. Leave about 2 inches between each ball. Bake for 11 minutes. If you want crispy cookies increase the baking time by 1-2 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before removing to wire rack. Makes about 2 dozen.

  1. I’m trying the cookies this afternoon. I’ll have to share my peanut butter brownie recipe that I have finally perfected-they taste as good as the ones from 5th street Cafe!
