Butterscotch Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies

Some things are just meant to be.  Last weekend my hubby and I were watching some old episodes of "The Office".  In the episode, the building offers everyone a free soft pretzel with unlimited toppings.  Michael got a little crazy, but I was seriously drooling.  




A few hours later I was pinning and came across Sally's Baking Addiction and her cookies made me melt.  I just knew those were the cookies I had been missing in my life.  It was fate.  I had to make them.  And since I was hosting one of my best friend's bridal shower in one week - I had to just hold out one week.

You'll Need:
1 1/2 sticks of butter, softened
1 cup of packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg + 1 egg yolk, room temperature
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
2 cups + 2 tablespoons of all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup of chopped pretzels 
1/2 cup of your favorite chocolate chips
1/2 cup of butterscotch chips

Step-by-step:
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees
2. Using a stand mixer, cream butter and sugars together until smooth.
3. Add egg and egg yolk, and vanilla - mix well.  
4. Mix in the baking soda, and very slowly (1/2 cup increments) add the flour. 
5. Fold in the chips and pretzels.
6. Chill the doug in the fridge for 10-15 minutes (how patient can you be?)
7. On an ungreased baking sheet or slipmat, bake for 10 minutes.

Notes:
Keep dough chilled at all times, so keep the dough in the fridge between batches.  I feel like Sally and her beautiful blog know what's up so I made sure to follow directions

Sally also encourages to swap out any of the mix-ins as long as you do not go over 1 1/2 cups.  But I'm so loving this combination, I think I can't switch!

Thanks again Sally for your amazing recipe!  You rock!!
