Sweet and Salty Peanut Butter Cookies

Sweet and Salty Peanut Butter Cookies

Sometimes I see a recipe and rather than wait for it to gather dust on my Pinterest, I need to make it right away. Such was the case with these awesome cookies I discovered on Food Porn Daily a week ago. The next day, I was loading my cart at Whole Foods with peanut butter and chocolate chips so I could make these. The dough is simple and comes together quickly in a stand mixer, but it would be just as simple by hand. As promised, these cookies are giant, chewy, sweet, and salty. Creamy peanut butter is the perfect compliment to the dark chocolate chips and pretzels add saltiness and crunch. With the size of these, one is more than enough per person and the perfect thing to share at an impromptu barbeque/movie night with friends.

Sweet and Salty Peanut Butter Cookies

I followed this recipe as posted on the website Keep It Sweet Desserts. The only slight changes I made were using large eggs instead of extra large and a scant 3/4 cup granulated sugar.

One year ago: Bacon, Tomato, and Cheddar Breakfast Bake with Eggs
Two years ago: Blueberry Pomegranate Doughnuts
Three years ago: Apple Soju Cocktail
Four years ago: Strawberry Buttermilk Cake
Five years ago: Greek Orzo with Shrimp and Mustard-Dill Vinaigrette

Love the sweet and salty combination, especially when it involves peanut butter!

Hah, yeah I'm DEFINITELY guilty of letting recipes collect Pinterest dust. But this one sounds like a total winner. Possibly because it involves chocolate, peanut butter and pretzels? Yep, pretty much.

I love pretty much everything Lauren makes (and have been privileged enough to taste some of her treats in real life) so I'm sure these are AMAZING. I bookmarked them also and hope to try them soon!

This sounds like my kind of cookie! I love the size and thinness, and sweet and salty is the best.

Don't care what the flavour it is, until it's a cookie.
