Crispy, chewy, sweet, and salty cookies with crunchy chunks of peanut butter pretzels and chocolate chips!




1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Sift flours, baking soda, baking powder and salt into a bowl an set aside.

2. Using a mixer fitted with paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugars together until pale yellow, about 5 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add the vanilla. Reduce speed to low, add dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Stir in crushed peanut butter pretzels and chocolate chips, or whatever you are using, by hand until just combined.

3. Drop scoops of cookie dough onto prepared baking sheets (I used a #50 scoop). Bake for about 12 minutes, rotating baking sheets halfway through. Remove from the oven, sprinkle very lightly with sea salt, and cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
