Pretzel Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Unsalted Butter Softened
  • 1 cup White Sugar
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 3/4 cups Peanut Butter
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup Crushed Pretzels
  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 8 Slices of Bacon Cooked and Chopped

Note

This recipe makes about 20-24 cookies so make sure to share.

Directions

Step 1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a food processor, grind the pretzels pretty fine. Process until they are completely chopped and pretty finely ground. ( I've used the traditional pretzel twists, sourdough pretzels, pretzel sticks and they have all turned out very similar.) You want to leave a little texture with some pretzel bits so don't grind until it becomes a meal or flour.

Cook, cool and chop your bacon strips. Set aside.
Step 2
Cream the softened butter, white sugar and brown sugar in a stand mixer with a paddle attachment. Cream until light. Add the eggs in one at a time. Add in the vanilla and peanut butter and mix well to combine.
Step 3
In a separate bowl, sift the flour, baking soda and salt. Whisk in the crushed ground pretzels. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix to combine. Finely add in the chopped bacon and mix until just combined.
Step 4
On baking sheets lined with parchment paper, round 3-4 tablespoons of dough and place on baking sheets 2-3 inches apart. Flatten by pressing the back side of a fork on 4 sides of the cookie. Bake for 10-11 minutes and repeat. Enjoy for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
