Pretzel and Peanut Butter M&M Cookies

Let me tell you about the evolution of these pretzel and peanut butter M&M cookies. It all started just before Valentine’s Day when I was wandering around target. Some people think facebook and pinterest are time sucks, but I think Target is the worst of all. Anyway, I found myself in the seasonal/holiday aisle. I found Valentine’s Day peanut butter M&M’s and I knew I had to make cookies with them. But you know what happened, right? I ate the whole bag before I made cookies. Fast forward a few weeks and I found Easter pretzel M&M’s. Again, I knew I needed to make cookies. And again, you know what happened. The bag got eaten before the cookies could be made. Story of my life. Thankfully, the third time is the charm. I couldn’t decide if I should make peanut butter M&M cookies or pretzel M&M cookies. I decided to merge the two together and do peanut butter M&M’s with pretzels. Now that I think about it peanut butter cookies with pretzel M&M’s would be good too. I guess I’ll be making another trip to target tomorrow…

This is the section of the post where I talk about how good these cookies are. But you are already on your way to Target to buy M&M’s so I’ll just skip straight to the recipe.

Here is what you’ll need

Combine the butter and both sugars into a large bowl

In another bowl combine the flour and baking soda

Ad the eggs to the sugar/butter mixture

Add the vanilla

Gradually add the dry ingredients

Fold in the pretzels and M&M’s

Place a tablespoon sized mound of dough onto a baking sheet. Top each mound with another mound. Bake.

These really are the perfect Easter cookie!
