I'm pretty sure there's some breakfast-y kinds of ingredients here...
That makes them suitable for breakfast!
Now this recipe is from
Sally's Baking Addiction website.
Check her website out, there's yummy recipes there!
Now let's not waste any time,
chop up those pretzels...
Straight outta www.sallysbakingaddiction.com
Makes 3 dozen cookies. Cookies stay soft and fresh at room temperature for up to 7 days. Cookie dough balls may be frozen up to three months and baked at a later time.
- 2 cups + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 3/4 cup (1.5 sticks) salted butter, softened
- 1 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 egg, at room temperature
- 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup chopped pretzels
- 1/2 cup butterscotch chips
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325F degrees.
Mix the flour and baking soda in a bowl and set aside. With an electric mixer or stand mixer with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugars together. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and mix well. Gradually add the flour mixture and stir until a dough forms (may take a couple minutes of stirring). Fold in the pretzels, butterscotch chips, and chocolate chips. Do not overmix the dough at any point in this process.
Chill dough for at least 30 minutes (or up to 5 days) in the refrigerator. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet. Press a few more pretzels (or butterscotch chips or chocolate chips) onto the tops for decoration. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are slightly browned. The centers should appear very soft and puffy. Let cool completely and enjoy!
Sally's Tip: *Make sure to keep dough cold at all times while the batches are baking. I kept my dough in the refrigerator in between batches.
Okay, I'm trying to think why I would showcase such a super exciting picture as the flour and baking soda here.
T'ant pretty to be my brain.
Anyhoo, moving along.....
And apparently moving along rather quickly
because this was the next picture on my camera...everything all mixed in together, the wet and dry ingredients.
So I actually doubled the recipe.
The two batters look good enough to eat, don't they!
And another gratuitous batter picture just to
whet your appetite.
By the way, I did eat some of this batter, MOM, and I did not take ill or die of botulism or potato famine disease or whatever it was you always scared us with about raw eggs and cookie batter.
This bowl has just the chocolate chips and the pretzels added in.
This bowl has the chocolate chips. pretzels AND the butterscotch morsels!
So anyhoo, I baked these babies at 325 degrees,
according to the directions.
They took a bit longer than the 8-10 minutes. More like 14 minutes, but I made sure NOT to overcook them.
OOPS! I forgot! I was supposed to add extra chips and pretzels on top just before baking so that's what I did with this next batch, like this.
They came out of the oven looking yummy.
And the cookies came out of the oven looking just a little bit funner like here!
Now look how cute these baked goodies are with that extra topping.
Here's the difference between the batch that had extra topping put on and the batch that didn't.
and salty pretzely
The perfect combination!
The outside is slightly crispy...
And the inside is soft and gooey!
Well, I sure hope you try out this recipe sometime!
Oh! They freeze wonderfully, too!

I promise the cookies will taste better than my plant is looking out on the back deck today.
This plant used to be gorgeous, now it's barely getting by.
This pot of succulents has done great though!
I don't even know what succulents are, but it looks cool.
Most of summer, mine have been yellowish with few blooms.
And the blooms that are there,
And lastly, I have no idea how the last remnant of this scrawny tabletop plant got removed and tossed to the side overnight.
Howwwwwwww??? Who does that???
Okay kiddos, tis all I gots for today!!
Gotta get to the grocery store for some lasagna ingredients!
