Can you really go wrong with sweet and salty? Pretzels and chocolate chip cookies? That is right, you really can't. Nick, being a sweet lover, said these might have been the best cookies he has ever had. SInce I can't really find good flours here at a brick and mortar store, I used the Betty Crocker GF cookie mix, and it was perfect. Enjoy.
CHOCOLATE CHIP PRETZEL COOKIES
1 Box GF cookie mix ( I used Betty Crocker)
1/2 cup smashed GF pretzels ( I used Glutano)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup softened vegan butter
2 tsp vanilla extract
Course sea salt
In a medium bowl mix all the dry ingredients together. In a larger bowl, whip together the sugars and butter. Add egg and vanilla. Mix the dry into the wet turning with a spatula. Once well mixed, cover and refrigerate for an hour. ( It is going to be a bit dry and crumbly. That is okay). Clean up your mess, line your cookie sheets with parchment paper or those cool silicone thingies if you got one.
Heat oven to 350 F. Take a spoonful of batter, and squeeze together in your hand and place on sheet about two inches apart. ( They WILL spread!) Sprinkle the sea salt on top and bake for about 10-12 minutes. I have found to go past the gooey stage and wait until they are browner, they hold together much better. Let them cool for a few minutes before you take them off the sheet, that also helps them hold their shape.
You can always add about a 1/4 cup of peanut butter to the egg mixture, that is divine as well :)
