I was looking for a way to use some pretzels I had and came up with an idea to incorporate them into cookies—Pretzel Cookies sort of a sweet and salty indulgence.

Pretzel Cookies makes a very tender cookie because of the cream cheese that is used.  And because of the cream cheese, they will stay tender until they are gone.  There is a lot going on in these cookies, including the chocolate chips, but that is why I like them so much.   They will be gobbled up in no time at all.  These are so great with a tall glass of milk. In summary, Pretzel Cookies are the perfect snack. Enjoy them as a dessert to Two-tone Lasagna!
