The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Ever

Let’s talk about the cookies…

They are Salty Pretzel Chocolate Chippers.

I know.

The base is a flippin’ amazing browned butter cookie dough, loaded with salty pretzel crumbs and chocolate chips.

It doesn’t get any better.

How to Make Salty Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies:

The steps are pretty basic and there is no chilling the dough!  Can I get an amen-hallelujah?

Just brown your butter in a saucepan and let it cool slightly.

 

Mix that in with some brown sugar.

Of course I used my favorite KitchenAid® mixer.

I crushed up some small twist pretzels.  About a cup and a half…

Once you have that all set, go ahead and use a large cookies scoop to portion them out.  (Here’s the link to my favorite cookie scoop)

Bake them up.  DO NOT OVERBAKE…if anything take them out when you think they aren’t quite done.  Trust me on this.

And don’t bother waiting until they are cooled.

Hey there!
After many tries with different kinds of cookies’ recipes i have just decided to try to get better and better at particular recipes! So my question is (and i believe is applied at the majority of cookies’ recipes). The butter should be melted firstly?????

Thanks a lot!

I need to use margarine instead of butter. Does one brown it the same way? Will it have the same effect?

Do you use salted or unsalted butter? I’ve just tried it with salted and it wouldn’t brown. Of course, I am cooking on a hot plate so that might have something to do with it!
