Now I’m going to have to pull out my Saturday Night Fever album and get busy dancing with that disco pretzel. I have the three piece white suit, too. Oh yes I do!
These Loaded-Up Pretzel Cookies didn’t last more than 4 hours in my house. Packed with pretzels, coconut and M & M’s, they are a tantalizing mix of sweet and salty. A huge hit.
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2-1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups miniature pretzels, broken
1-1/2 cups flaked coconut
1-1/2 cups milk chocolate M & M’s
1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
3. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Stir in remaining ingredients.
4. Shape 1/4 cupfuls of dough into balls; place 3 inches apart on parchment lined (or ungreased) baking sheets.
5. Bake 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
Yield: 2 dozen
