The recipe was easy. I was surprised that it called for melting the butter instead of softening. That was a little different for me with a cookie. I must admit that I'm not the biggest baker, so I'm sure many others have made cookies like this. The flour and salt needed sifted, again, something I haven't done in a while and I don't even own a sifter! I simply used a metal collander to sift with.
For the pretzels, I very lightly crushed them so there would be pretty good size chunks. I cannot tell you how much I LOVED this aspect.
The one change I made was to forego adding dried fruit. I just didn't have any raisin or craisins in the house (which is rare). I should have added more chocolate chips, but instead, I added a few more pretzel chunks. Next time, I'll add more chocolate chips too.
At first, the dough was a little rough to work with after adding the pretzels, but part of that was because I added the pretzels after chilling it because hubby had eaten the pretzels I was going to use for this- resulting in an unexpected trip to the store for more pretzels. (Isn't that the worst?!)
It was also a little annoying to have to rotate the baking pan after 5 minutes of baking, but it made a difference.
This recipe was so delightful! It was tasty- the ultimate for that salty/sweet craving. Everyone who tasted one raved about how delicious they were. Totally amazing. Click here for the recipe.
