These white chocolate caramel pretzel cookies are loaded with sweet and salty flavor as well as chewy and crunchy texture!
Total Time:25 minutes
1 cup (230 gm) unsalted butter
½ cup (100 gm) sugar
¾ cup (150 gm) brown sugar packed
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups (405 gm) all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
¾ cup caramel baking bits, caramel chips, or diced caramels
¾ cup white chocolate chips or chopped white chocolate
¾ cup chopped salted pretzels (OR chopped pecans- your choice!)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Melt the butter over low heat on the stove, being sure to not let it boil. Pour the melted butter into a large bowl and stir in the sugar and brown sugar. Stir in the eggs and extract. Add the flour, soda, powder, and salt and fold the mixture together until combined. Add in the caramel, white chocolate, and either pretzels or pecans. Fold to combine. Use a medium cookie scoop to portion out 1-1/2 tablespoon sized rounds of dough. Roll them gently and space them out 2” apart on the baking sheets. Sprinkle with a bit of flaky sea salt if desired. Bake in the preheated oven for 11-12 minutes or until the edges are set and the cookies are baked through. Allow to cool prior to enjoying!
