20--- Twisted Peanut Butter Cookies

Salty and sweet together.........a favorite of mine! These savory peanut butter cookies have sweet little dark chocolate chips and ................ PRETZELS! When you eat one, you don't notice the pretzels right away. And then you get a crunchy bite of one. People say "Are there pretzels in these?". Why yes there are. So worth a 20!

Twisted Peanut Butter Cookies

Makes 40 cookies

1 cup creamy peanut butter

1 cup softened butter

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

8-10 salted pretzel rods, broken into small pieces but not crushed (do your best), to equal 1 1/2 cups

11 ounces dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugars. Add eggs and beat well. Add flour, baking soda, and baking powder and mix until well-combined.

Fold in pretzel pieces and chocolate chips. Place spoonfuls of batter onto an ungreased cookie sheet, separating them by 2".

Bake for 8 minutes and remove from oven. Allow to cool and set for ~ 2 minutes before removing from sheet and transferring to wax paper to cool fully. Store in an airtight container.


  1. Mmm, this looks like a sweet salty combo that I could sink my teeth into. I'd have trouble resisting the temptation to eat a ton of these too. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog and I'd like to invite you to stop by and link your cookies up.
