Recipe Tips & Notes

  • This recipe specifies measuring out the flour packed. I know the generally accepted method of correctly measuring flour is to “spoon and sweep,” many of my own cookie recipes call for using that method. However, this recipe requires that you pack the flour against the side of the container as you measure it out. It WILL make a difference if you don’t do this.
  • You can use any chocolate chips that you have on hand in this recipe, but I personally prefer a really dark chocolate to pair with butterscotch and with the saltiness of the pretzels. I used 60% cacao chocolate chips.
  • Your personal preference totally determines how finely you crush the pretzels. Personally, I really like the pretzels to be finely crushed. But if you like big chunks of pretzels in your cookies, go for it!
