3. Add vanilla, eggs, soda, and salt, and beat another 2-3 minutes.
4. Stir in flour until almost combined, then with mixer running, pour in pretzels and both chips until just combined.
5. Drop dough by tablespoon onto prepared cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until light golden brown. Allow to cool, and enjoy!
The pretzels stay surprising crunchy in the cookies for a couple days, and it's a nice change from regular chocolate chip cookies. The dough is also highly addictive, so beware! I'm not suggesting you eat it, with the raw eggs and all, but I can't ever help myself . . . I think pregnancy has been the hardest 18-20 months of my life since I couldn't eat the dough and make cookies out of it. ;) If you're looking for a safe alternative, just substitute about 1/2 c. of milk for the eggs and have at it!
|Highly addictive - I'm warning you again!|
|You can see mine are a little underdone in the middles, but that's |
how I like them - leave yours in a few minutes longer if you don't.
