Ally's Sweet & Savory Eats: Brown Butter Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies

Brown Butter Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies

Have I got a cookie for ya!

I baked these little beauties up the night before our Iowa Food & Lifestyle Blogger Meet-up.  Each attendee got one in their swag bag and I heard compliments throughout the day, so they must have liked them!

The texture of this cookie is a bit different, unique, yet crazy good.  They are dense, yet filled with a nutty flavor topped with a ton of crushed pretzels and chocolate chips.  Quite the mouthful, but a delicious one indeed.  The perfect salty/sweet combo.

I will say though....I did have a certain someone in the house {I won't name names} who asked "why, don't you ever just make a regular chocolate chip cookie?"

Good question.  I think for my next batch I might go back to the basics.  Some people just don't like change.

The little man was stealing these left and right the night I made them and the little miss wouldn't touch them. Let me remind you, she will eat anything we put in front of her.....but when I give her a cookie she usually hands it back.

Clearly, she is not my child.

You see I craved sweets so BAD while carrying her, that I think I messed her up for life.

But if you like sweets {and salt!} try these cookies.  They are a fun twist on the original!

Brown Butter Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 sticks softened unsalted butter
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 T. vanilla
3 1/2 c. flour

1 c. crushed pretzels
1 t. baking soda
1 10 oz. bag semi-sweet chocolate chips

In a small saucepan, melt one stick of butter.  Do not bring it to a boil, but a hard simmer, stirring constantly until it turns slightly brown with a nutty smell.  Remove from the heat and cool.

In a stand-up mixer or large bowl combine the other stick of  butter and sugars, beating well until light and fluffy.  Add in the melted, cooled brown butter.  Add the eggs and vanilla, beating until combined.  Add in flour and baking soda mixing to combine.  Fold in the pretzels and chocolate chips.  Cover and place this dough in the fridge for at least one hour.

When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place parchment paper on a large baking sheet or simply spray with cooking spray.  Using a large cookie scoop, scoop out a good amount of dough, roll and press down a bit to flatten.

Bake for 8-10 minutes or until slightly golden.  Do not over bake.
