Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Pretzel Cookies

Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Pretzel Cookies

1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. of salt
1/4 tsp. of baking soda
1/2 cup of butter at room temperature
1/2 cup of tightly packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup of granulated sugar
1 egg (beaten)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter chips
1/2 cup broken up pretzel pieces
Preztel Salt or Sea Salt (I didn't have this, but the cookies are great)

In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In a larger bowl, beat the butter and two types of sugar together on medium speed until light and fluffy. On low speed, slowly add the beaten egg and vanilla extract. Beat to combine, scrape down the sides of the bowl.

Add the flour mixture and beat just until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and pretzels. Cover and refrigerate for an hour.

Preheat the oven to 350F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Scoop out well rounded tablespoonfuls of the dough and sprinkle with pretzel salt. The cookies don't spread much when baking, so I flattened the cookies with my hand before baking. Bake for about 12-14 minutes. Allow them to cool for a couple minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.
