I made 3 dozen cookies earlier this week and Sam has declared them the best cookies I've ever made! That is high praise around here. Now it's Saturday afternoon and there are just 4 cookies left. So...would you like to have the recipe? I thought so.
M & M Pretzel Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 9 oz package of Pretzel M & Ms
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy; beat in egg and vanilla. In medium bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt; blend into butter/sugar mixture a little bit at a time. Stir in Pretzel M & Ms. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls (I used a cookie scoop) 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Sprinkle a small pinch of sea salt on the top of each cookie (trust me...it really makes the cookies taste fantastic). Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and centers are soft. Cool 2 minutes on the cookie sheet and then cook completely on wire racks. Makes approx. 3 dozen.
