I am all about the sweet and salty mix. When I found this recipe I had to make these ASAP. They were perfect, I would even add a little more crushed pretzels next time. I loved these. Super yummy.
1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup of butter at room temperature
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup crushed pretzel pieces
Sea salt for sprinkling (optional)
In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a larger bowl, beat the butter and sugars together on medium speed until light and fluffy. On low speed, slowly add the beaten egg and vanilla. Beat to combine, scrape down sides of the bowl.
Add the flour mixture and beat just until there are no more streaks of flour. Stir in the chocolate chips, and pretzels.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Scoop out well rounded tablespoons of dough and sprinkle with sea salt if desired. Bake for 10 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on a backing sheet for a few minutes before removing.
