I'm not much into baking cookies(I know I've told you that before), thankfully I have older kids who love to make cookies. I don't have the patience to scoop out the individual cookies. Usually I will bake bar cookies or brownies. I have seen a lot of brownie and cookie recipes on Pinterest that add pretzel bits. If you're on pinterest I'd love for you to follow me, you can find me here. This brownie recipe with peanut butter and chocolate chips is a favorite at our house. One day when I was on pinterest, the little light bulb went off and I decided to make a batch and add pretzel pieces. We were mighty pleased with the result!
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup pretzel sticks, broken
In the bowl of your mixer, beat together the butter, peanut butter and brown sugar. Beat until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in the vanilla extract.
In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add to the mixer a little at a time, mixing until just combined.
Fold in the chocolate chips and pretzel pieces.
Spread batter in a lightly greased 9" baking dish.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
