Delicious! I got close to 60 cookies out of this recipe. I can’t wait to share this at Bible study tonight!

I made these tonight for dinner. Yummy! You do have to flatten them slightly before baking because they do not spread. Delicious! I think I’ll make them on Superbowl Sunday too! Thanks for sharing.

Mmmmmm……I made these last night and thought they were yummy. Peanut butter and chocolate cookies are a regular in our house and I loved the addition of pretzels. After reading the above comments I did flatten the cookies before baking them and they came out PERFECT!! Thanks

These were awesome. The pretzels were a great salty addition to my sweet addiction. My only word of caution is I froze half the batter because it made a TON of cookies. When I made the second batch the batter was very crumbly and though they still tasted delicious they were very hard to handle and store. Wound up with a bag of crumbs towards the end. Not to say that I didn’t eat each and every one of those crubms with a spoon!

I have been wanting to make these for a while and finally got around to it the other night. The rave reviews fueled my need to see what the fuss was about. I followed the recipe and just did not care for the pretzel pieces. The cookie itself was moist and soft and tasted pretty good. The pretzels didn’t really add much, other than a chewy texture.

I just gained approximately 10 lbs and I haven’t even tried a BAKED cookie yet. I used only one extra large egg, and the dough had a hard time sticking together, so to anyone who only has jumbo eggs in the fridge, you might want to either do two, or measure out a tablespoon of the second egg and add it to the first.

I made these exactly as specified (the first time), and waited too long to remove them from the oven. I was looking for golden brown tops, so I keep them in the oven until I saw golden brown tops (about 12-13 minutes). Although they were good straight from the oven, this batch became hard pretty quickly. I also didn’t feel that the pretzel added too much flavor to the cookie.

So… I made these again. Instead of pretzels, I added peanut butter chips. I removed them from the oven right at 10 minutes. The result? My boyfriend’s new favorite cookie! This version tasted amazing and stayed soft for days. Although they appeared slightly un-done at 10 minutes, I put them on a cookie rack to cool. So soft and moist. Perfect!
