Chubby Hubby Cookies

I've mentioned before that How Sweet It Is is taking over my cooking world, and I should point out my baking as well.  This amazing recipe is thanks to her, and I'll be more than happy to work it into my cookie rotation.

  • 2 cups + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter, melted and cooled (really!)
  • 1 cup loosely packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg + 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups pretzel sticks, crushed (seriously- make sure they're crushed or you get a big pretzel javelin like the one you see in my top cookie!)
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Mix the flour, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl and set aside.
  3. In a stand mixer, mix the butter, peanut butter, and sugars until combined.  Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and mix until combined.  Gradually add flour mixture until dough forms (it will be crumbly at first, but will come together).  Fold in the crushed pretzels and chocolate chips.  
  4. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and place about 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.
  5. Bake 8-10 minutes or until slightly golden and set.  Let sit for 2 minutes, and then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.

 Om nom nom nom.
