Tasty Tuesday: Sweet Pretzel Cookies

I've been working my way through the PW cookbook, but also through my list of goodies I've pinned on the joy/addiction that is Pinterest. This past week was my birthday and we had a meeting at work on my birthday. Since I knew I wanted to bring in a treat to share and celebrate with, I decided I would try the sweet pretzel cookies.

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.
