The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Ever

They are Salty Pretzel Chocolate Chippers.

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.

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.

    These cookies sound so good! I’m totally into sweet & salty combos. My fave holiday cookies are probably my grandma’s no bake chocolate peanut butter oatmeal cookies.

    I made these cookies as soon as you posted them today. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any pretzels so I used chips (potato chips). They were very good but I should have omitted the salt or at least cut back on it. I will try with pretzels next time.
    Thank you for the recipe and for all of your beautiful, yummy recipes that you share everyday.
