Cookie Monster Cookies

Who wouldn’t turn into a cookie monster with these lying around on the kitchen counter? Click on this photo to get a better look. 

Can you feel your mouth watering? I mean really, look at all those nooks and crannies full of sweet, salty, crunchy, gooey, chocolaty, tantalizing flavors.  This cookie contains all of the characteristics you want in a cookie.
I took my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe and swapped out the roasted walnuts for broken Potato Chips and Pretzels.   Anyone having the chance to try one these will not be disappointed.   They will go great with coffee, tea or a tall, cold glass of milk.    Eat them while they are warm or cold.   You could even serve them with a scoop of ice cream.  These will definitely bring out the Cookie Monster that lurks inside all of us.    

Chocolate, Potato Chip & Pretzel Cookies
(Yields 1 dozen x-large cookies)

2 sticks unsalted butter
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 eggs
1/3 cup unsulphured molasses (not blackstrap)
4 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
¾ cup Pretzels, broken

¾ cup potato chips, broken
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350° F. In bowl of electric mixer fitted with paddle, cream together butter and sugars until well blended and fluffy. Add eggs and beat until well incorporated, then add molasses.   In a separate bowl mix the flour, salt, baking soda, until just combined.  Add the dry ingredients slowly to the wet ingredients and mix until blended. Remove from mixer and gently fold in chocolate chips, pretzels and potato chips. Transfer dough to clean work surface and divide into 12 equal portions. Place each on sheet pan lined with parchment paper and bake in oven 12 minutes, or until very lightly browned. Let cool on rack and store in airtight container.

Beware of lurking Cookie Monsters.  I am sure there will be many sightings.
