Salted Pretzel & Choc Chunk Cookies

Makes 20-24 Prep Time 10 minutes   Cook Time 10 minutes   Rated:

I have an American daughter in law (well two American DIL's now) who provided me with massive amounts of pretzels, and so that is my excuse for this indulgence….not quite same, but amazing! (No bacon involved, you will be glad to know!) The yumminess will have you standing at the fridge during the 4 hour wait before cooking, spoon in hand, yelling ‘Hurry, hurry!’ like a demented baker. You should consider a second batch quite soon. They do seem to disappear quickly.

I like them big...big American salty sweet, yin yang cookies! DONE. Cue the cold milk.
