Peanut Butter-Pretzel-Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut Butter-Pretzel-Chocolate Chip Cookies(1)What better combination than salty and sweet? Today’s recipe is for just that – cookies that combine the salt of pretzels and peanut butter with the sweet of chocolate. And added bonus, I dropped one of these into a bowl of vanilla ice cream and it did not disappoint.

Peanut Butter-Pretzel-Chocolate Chip Cookies(3)
Ingredients

1 ¼ c all-purpose flour
1 c quick oats
1 t baking soda
¼ t salt
12 T unsalted butter, room temperature
1 ¼ c packed light brown sugar
2/3 c crunchy peanut butter
1 large egg
1 t vanilla extract
1 c chocolate chips
1 ½ oz thin pretzel sticks, coarsely crushed

Instructions

  • Combine flour, oats, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.  Set aside.
  • Using a stand mixer, combine butter and brown sugar until smooth.  Add peanut butter, egg, and vanilla and mix until well-incorporated.
  • Reduce mixer speed and add flour gradually until just combined.  Add chocolate chips and pretzels, again until just combined.
  • Cover mixture with plastic wrap and refrigerate for one hour.
  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees while cookie dough is chilling.
  • Line baking sheets with Silpat or parchment paper.  Drop dough on the cookie trays, about 1-1 ½ inch size balls.  Gently press to flatten to about ¾-inch thick.  While you don’t want the cookies to be too close, they will not expand too much so you can fit quite a few on a sheet.
  • Bake for 11-13 minutes.  Cool on cookie sheet for about 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
