Oh cookies, I did it again. Yup, I sure did. This time when I received my box of goodies from H-E-B for their Primo Picks, I got a bunch of things, some fun sparkling water, a great seasoning rub and even an artichoke spread and a pre-made cake mix. I decided to go with the gluten free pretzels from Gratify. First of all, I taste tested the little suckers and I was surprised that they actually tasted…exactly like regular pretzels. Funny huh? I’m usually not one for all the gluten-free products but these actually stood up to the taste test. I decided to satisfy my sweet and salty tooth with some Chocolate Chip Pretzel Cookies! I only wanted a few cookies though, so I found this great recipe for only a dozen cookies on Dessert for Two. After much research and consulting with my Granny, I found out that basically if you want cookies that are chewy and delicious and not too cakey, you gotta use a little shortening. If anyone has a great recipe that achieves chewy deliciousness without the shortening, please do let me know :). In the meantime, I thought that this recipe really hit the spot! I switched a few things, and of course, added pretzels!
For this recipe, you’ll need:
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
Begin by creaming the butter, shortening and sugar together. Next add the egg. Whip until just combined. Next add the dry ingredients one half at a time. Whip until just combined. Try not to over mix.
Next, fold in the chocolate chips and pretzel pieces.
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Spoon into golf ball sized scoops and place onto a greased pan or silicon baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
And that’s it! A super simple recipe, just add your own twist. What are your favorite cookie add-ins? Salty? More sweet? M&M’s? Peanut Butter?
This post was sponsored by H-E-B and I received free products in exchange for this post. But no worries y’all, opinions are all my own. It wouldn’t be cool if posted about things that didn’t taste delicious on this blog.
Let’s talk about cookies and their importance in life. There’s something about them that are so comforting and well delicious. My favorite of all time happen to be snickerdoodles with my Granny’s recipe. I’ve recently been a really big fan of salted chocolate chip, because yeah, just yeah. Or what about these with potato chips? I see those in my near future fo sho. I remember my mom would always hide oreos from me… and my Dad, probably more him, ha. They would be in a pink glass jar, waaaaay in the back of the tallest cabinet. I think this is where my monkey tendencies in the kitchen began. I could pull up a chair then climb the cabinet like a ladder, pull half my body into the cabinet to find that jar. An entire package of oreos fit perfectly into that jar, minus one, because you always had to eat one while putting them away. I still remember that jar. Really wish I could find it now. I loved sinking oreos into the bottom of a glass of milk, then drinking all the milk and eating the oreo mush with a spoon. I still think about this every time I eat cookies ‘n cream ice cream haha. So this post isn’t about oreos, but the classic chocolate chip cookie. And just in time for summer, let’s cool it down with some ice cream and call it a day, eh?
This post was sponsored by H-E-B and their #PrimoPicks. This months box came with a big red bag of cookies and you betcha I dove into those. While I was making the cookie sandwiches I literally had to pull the bag from my friends little paws because they were so good on their own. I had to lay down the law and no more ruining your dessert ladies!
Nothing complicated here, you’ll need some ice cream, a bag of The Big Chip Cookie from H-E-B and sprinkles… because sprinkles.
Scoop the ice cream and put it on a cookie, duh.
Yup, just like that.
Make it a sandwich, cookie sandwich that is.
Dip the sides into a bowl of sprinkles, roll it around a little.
And that’s it y’all. What are some of your favorite childhood desserts? I wanna hear about ’em!
