Chocolate Chip Pretzel Cookies

Ultra-thick bakery-style cookies are loaded with sweet and salty flavors everyone craves! A delicious combination of melty chocolate and crunchy pretzels.

Equipment

  • Baking sheets
  • Parchment paper
  • Two mixing bowls (one for dry ingredients and a larger one for wet ingredients)
  • Electric handheld mixer
  • Spoon

Ingredients
  

  • cups flour
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup cold butter (1 stick of butter is usually 1/2 cup)
  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips. About 10-11 oz (or 1/2 a bag if you want less chocolate)
  • ¼ cup crushed walnuts (optional)
  • ½ cup pretzels, broken in to bite size pieces

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 475°
  • Prepare baking sheets with parchment paper to prevent sticking
  • In the smaller mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, corn starch, salt, and baking soda
  • Cut the stick of butter into smaller pieces
  • In the larger mixing bowl, combine the butter, sugar, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla extract
  • Gently stir the dry ingredients (flour, corn starch, salt, etc.) into the larger bowl with the butter/egg/sugar mixture
  • Add in chocolate chips, pretzel pieces, and optional walnuts. Mix gently until fully combined
  • Using a full size spoon (tablespoon), make cookie dough balls and place them on the baking sheet
  • Bake for 6-7 minutes or until the tops of the cookies get golden/brown (keep you eye on them:)
  • Remove from the oven and let them cool. They’ll continue to cook on the inside while they cool

Notes

TIP: To make EXTRA LARGE cookies, double the size of the cookie dough balls using 2 tablespoon scoops and increase the baking time to 9-10 minutes. Makes 9 cookies if made larger.
