As I said yesterday, I am no cookie expert, and Heidi from Foodie Crush is, and I always have such great success with her cookie recipes I decided to go back for more, and I knew the Chocolate Covered cookie recipe was THE ONE.
My brother didn't love the Autumn Pies I brought to Thanksgiving, I really have my work cut out for me here kiddies. I told him his palette wasn't sophisticated enough, he told me to leave veggies out of dessert. He better love these cookies! White Chocolate and Pretzels IN COOKIES. DONE AND DONE.
2 ⅓ cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
½ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup dark brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups chopped white chocolate covered pretzels
1 cup white chocolate chips
⅓ cup holiday sprinkles
1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
3. In a separate bowl beat butter and sugars together until creamy and smooth, about 3 minutes. Add in the eggs and vanilla extract and mix until combined.
4. Slowly beat in the dry ingredients. Stir in the chocolate covered pretzels and chocolate chips. Gently stir in the sprinkles.
5. Drop tablespoon-sized dough balls onto prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.
6. Bake for 10 minutes, or until cookies are set but still soft in the center. Cool cookies on baking sheet for 2 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire cooling rack and cool completely.
The mix of salty and sweet is de-lish in these cookies. Again, I should mention that I don't love to bake cookies, but for Christmas you just have to! These were really easy to make, I guess I prefer drop cookies to cookies you roll out!
Two cookies down! I should probably start my Christmas shopping soon, but there's so much baking to do! There's more cookies coming your way this week....
