Salted Caramel Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookie

3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup caramel bits
1/2 cup crushed pretzels

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together butter and sugars until fluffy and light in color. Add egg and vanilla and blend in. Mix in flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Stir in chocolate chips, caramel bits and crushed pretzels. Drop dough on a prepared cookie sheet. Sprinkle with Salt. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until barely golden brown around the edges. Let cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes then remove from sheet to a cooling rack and let cool completely.

**This recipe came from a friend. She had made these cookies one day and let me sample them while I was at her house. They had a yummy, chewy, soft, crunchy texture all in one with a sweet and salty flavor mixed with the chocolate and caramel. I told her how much I liked her cookie and not many days later she brought me over a FULL plate of these cookies! Yes, I did share some of them! My friend was willing to share the recipe with me, so I am sharing it with you! Try them and let me know what you think! Thanks Alison for the YUMMY COOKIES!

I don't have caramel bits but I do have you think that would be good to substitute with?

Kristi Rowley said...

Sounds wonderful! I don't have any caramel bits either. Only toffee bits, I really have to go to the store in the morning! Thank you for sharing. Lou

I used the toffee bits and although mine look nothing like yours (my dough was much darker) they taste wonderful!
