Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies with a Secret Ingredient...

I have really started to like the flavors of salty and sweet together, and wondered if it would be possible to make a cookie incorporating those flavors.  My secret ingredient was pretzels!  I was thrilled with how these came out and hope you will be too.

Here are the ingredients:

1 cup flour
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
6 tablespoons butter, melted
½ cup packed brown sugar
¼ cup granulated sugar
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
1 egg
½ cup semisweet chocolate chips
½ cup oatmeal
⅓ cup pretzels, broken into pieces

Begin by pre-heating the oven to 325 degrees.  You can either use a silicone mat or grease your cookie sheet.

Combine the dry ingredients into a small bowl and set aside.  In your mixer, combine the melted butter, and both the brown and white sugars and blend until creamy.  Next, add the egg and vanilla.  Once everything is well-blended, mix in the dry ingredients, just until blended.  Try not to over-beat the dough.

Remove the mixing bowl from the mixer and gently stir in the pretzels, oatmeal and chocolate chips.  Drop spoonfuls of cookie dough on your prepared cookie sheet and flatten slightly.  Bake for 11-12 minutes, then cool on a wire rack.

All that's left is to eat them!
