I struggle with cookies.
I bake them. I eat twelve-ish with milk. I feel ashamed.
Not really ashamed.
Mostly full and happy really.
Cookies are the reason I run a mile every morning.
These cookies in particular are totally worth the treadmill tradeoff. Yes, they look like ordinary cookies but they taste incredible. These ones are not to be missed.
In case you're wondering the pretzels stay crunchy and they are *delish* in cookies. I don't really see any reason to ever make a normal chocolate chip cookie again.
Sub your favorite chocolate chip cookie base recipe if you wish, and just add the milk chocolate chip/pb chip/pretzel combo to the dough. It's the mix-ins that really make this cookie magical.
You can omit the sprinkle of salt on top if you don't have it, and they will still be delicious. I doubled the recipe for you because, welp, you're gonna want that many.
