It’s been awhile since I posted a Baking for Bros Recipe- so Cricket decided to help me with this one. You know when you are… uh… PMSing pretty hard, and you want something chocolaty, crunchy, chewy and salty- all at the same time? Well, this is the cookie for you. And they are so damn easy to make, you have no excuse to get up off that couch and stop watching Tanked. We get it, you are Italian and make fish tanks. Jeez.
Ingredients: (Makes about 3 Dozen.)
3 1/2 Cups Flour
1 Tsp Baking Soda
1 Tsp Salt
1 1/3 Cups Butter
1 3/4 Cups Brown Sugar
3/4 Cups and 2 Tbs and 1 Tsp White Sugar
1 Tbs and 2 1/4 Tsp Vanilla
1 Egg Yolk
3 Cups Peanut Butter Chips
1 Cup Chocolate Chips
1 Cup Broken Pretzels
*Tips: (Ant’s tips. Not Cricket’s. Because he sucks at baking.)
Make sure you melt your butter beforehand, so that it isn’t hot.
Room temperature eggs only! Cold eggs will ruin this up, man.
6 on 1 cookie sheet, or else they will stick to one another.
What to Do:
Pre-Heat oven to 325 Degrees. If you play a little music, this helps. Maybe get it some roses, a little wine. Treat her nice.
Sift together flour, baking soda and salt. Whisk them together to remove any clumps that may have snuck by while you were distracted by internet hunks.
Cream together butter, brown sugar and white sugar. Nice and fluffy!
Beat in vanilla, egg and egg yolk. Look how easy this is, you are on your way to cookie goodness.
Mix in sifted mixture. Slowly, you don’t want this all over the place. This isn’t a teen comedy.
Stir in both chocolate and peanut butter chips. Stir in crushed pieces of pretzel. Cricket says you can smash ‘em with your hands, but since we aren’t Vikings use a knife and chop them into small pieces. Or whatever size you want. I don’t care.
Drop onto greased sheet with ice cream scoop. These are bakery-style cookies, so they will be pretty big. Just the way we like it, uh-huh. Use break and bake method, if preferred. (It sounds complicated but ohmygosh it’s not at all. Google that mess.)
Place about 3 inches apart. Top with crushed pieces of pretzel.
Bake for 15-17 minutes per sheet. Cool on trays for 1 minute, and then place on wire racks. Or burly up yo’ mouth and eat that suckah’ hot as hell. We bleed once a month, I think we can handle a little hot cookie.
While these were Crick’s idea, the man has no idea how to bake so I helped him out. They hit all the right spots, lemme’ tell ya’. Salty, sweet, chewy and crunchy. They are the perfect treat for when everything and everyone is annoying.
