These are great cookies! It is the perfect combination of sweet and salty, chewy and crisp. I've been eyeing this recipe ever since it was published, but with all the fun add-ins, I never really thought I'd have everything around to make them! Then last evening, when my sister and I were trying to come up with something sweet to bring to a church function, we found that we had every single ingredient and could make these exactly as written. They came out perfectly delicious! I would definitely make these cookies again. My sister and I both thought that the addition of raisins would be a good touch, to give them a bit more chewiness.
For those who thought the dough was very dry: it works best to mix the butter mixture into the flour mixture with your hands. This is a trick I learned in culinary school; your hands are the most effective tool for mixing and combining.
Thanks so much for sharing this recipe; it is a winner and we'll be making them again!
I was skeptical about using the pretzels so I cooked one batch without them. Not good. So, I added the pretzels and while it did help, I still wasn't crazy about these. They just don't have any distinguishing flavor and are a bit bland. Sorry. Also, it seemed like a lot of flour to me and the dough was very dry. I followed the recipe exactly other than not having quite a full cup of milk chocolate chips so I had to finish the cup with semi sweet. I don't think that really made much difference...
I originally made these and reviewed these when CC had it as a personal recipe in her recipe box. These are my husband's favorite cookie. I make them all the time, following the recipe just as written. I can't imagine anyone claiming that these would be bland with all of the different ingredients that are included. They are sweet, salty, crunchy, chewy, everything you would want in a cookie. I will continue to make these frequently and am so glad that this recipe is now "kitchen approved"!
These were great! My niece and nephew were over helping me bake and wanted mini m&m's so we used them instead of chocolate chips. They loved these cookies (I think they loved the dough even more!) and they were also popular on my cookie tray.
We loved these at our house. A substantial cookie that you can easily add your own favourites to. For my first batch I added raisins and sunflower seeds instead of pecans because of nut allergy. I used my hands to mix the dough on the advice of a previous review and found the dough easy to work with. Loved the texture and taste of this cookie...will make again.
This isn't a bad recipe, but compared with other wonderful recipes on this website, it just doesn't quite measure up. When I read the combinations I thought they would be very flavorful! However the cookies are a little bland. With the right modifications, I'm sure they could be wonderful.
Lovely flavour in this cookie! Not a flat cookie. But lovely textures. Made as suggested, with the exception of substitution of sunflower seeds for pecans (what I had on hand) YUMMY!
Fantastic!!! The perfect combination of salty and sweet, chewy and crunchy. I didn't have pecans or cereal so I left those out and I also reduced the baking time to 10 minutes for my gas oven. They turned out great!!!
