  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ⅔ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 12 oz pkg of white chocolate chips
  • 1½ cups broken pretzels or more if desired
  • sea salt to sprinkle on top
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In mixer bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs, vanilla, salt, baking soda. Mix in flour on a low speed. Add in pretzels and chocolate chips at the end.
  3. Original recipe calls for refrigerating 1 hour, but I didn't need to do that. Just refrigerate between batches.
  4. Scoop rounded tablespoons full of dough and place on cookie sheet. Flatten slightly and sprinkle lightly with sea salt.
  5. Bake 12 -15 mins and place cookie sheet on cooling rack.
  6. ** Original recipe called for regular chocolate chips, but I prefer white chocolate with the taste of pretzels. Use whatever you prefer. Also original recipe called for half of all the amounts listed here, but I doubled the recipe since I desired more than 24 cookies. I used all organic white sugar instead of using the brown sugar. I also tripled the amount of pretzels instead of just doubling. I wanted extra pretzels and extra chips.
