Like it or not—and, really, READY or not—the holidays are coming up fast and furious, my friends. I’ve already seen “save the date” and “next meeting is a cookie swap” emails going around. I do love traditional holiday foods and baking, but sometimes I like to have a little fun and change things up a bit. We often use Ritz Crackers as part of holiday planning, but we haven’t really used them as part of our holiday baking before. But then my friend Jill was like, “What if you put Ritz Crackers and pretzels crushed up in chocolate-chip cookies and then baked them?” Don’t I have amazingly smart friends? All the sweet of a chocolate-chip cookie with salty, crunchy pretzels AND Ritz Crackers! Seriously! It’s the holidays—let’s have a little sweet salty chocolate party in our mouths for a while!
Sweet Salty Chocolate Chip Cookies
3/4 C. crushed Ritz crackers
1 C. unsalted butter softened (using salted butter will make the cookies too salty)
3/4 C. sugar
3/4 C. packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 C. flour
3/4 C. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 C. crushed pretzels
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine the sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, eggs and unsalted butter and vanilla, mixing well.
*Makes approximately 2 dozen cookies
