With the addition of crushed pretzels to the cookie dough, these  easy chocolate chip cookies are the perfect balance between salty and sweet. Bake 10 minutes for a soft and chewy cookie or up to 14 minutes for a crisp cookie.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Beat butter and sugars at medium speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer until creamy. Add eggs and 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla, beating until blended.

Step 2

Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl; gradually add to butter mixture, beating just until blended. Beat in morsels and pretzel sticks just until combined. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets.

Step 3

Bake at 350° for 10 to 14 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Remove to wire racks, and cool completely (about 15 minutes).

I recommend these with reservations. The way mine turned out, in the future in would read the recipe as 2 cups pretzels, crushed (not 2 cups crushed pretzels) I would also reduce the flour in the recipe slightly, as my cookies didn't spread very much while while baking. Otherwise a great cookie recipe!

These were great..the cookies had the perfect salty/sweet ratio. I used a rolling pin to crush the pretzels and silpat non-stick liners. Yummy!

this is one of our favorite cookie recipes. We love the sweet and salty taste and the crunch of the big pretzel pieces. I used Pretzel rods crushed with a rolling pin.

These cookies are super ! Chewy and moist. It is easiest to crush the pretzels in a Zip-loc plastic bag (un-sealed). The recipe made almost 6 dozen cookies.

Delicious!! I love chocolate covered pretzel and these cookies rock. They were not as salty as I feared they'd be. It's the perfect balance!
