Makes about 3 dozen cookies
2 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chocolate covered pretzels, chopped
36 whole chocolate covered pretzels
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter, peanut butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Mix until smooth (about 3-5 minutes). Add the egg and vanilla. Mix until combined.
With the mixer on low speed, gradually add the flour mixture until just combined. Mix in the chopped chocolate covered pretzels.
Scoop the dough into 1-inch balls and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Lightly flatten each ball to create a disc shape. Bake for 10-11 minutes.
Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool on the baking sheet for 5-8 minutes before removing to a baking rack to finish cooling. Once completely cool, remove them from the rack and top each cookie with a chocolate covered pretzel. Store the cookies in an air-tight container.
