Chocolate Chunk Pretzel Cookies

makes about 2 ½ dozen


2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 cup light brown sugar
¾ cup granulated sugar
2 sticks unsalted butter
1 large egg
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 bag semisweet chocolate chunks
1 cup crushed pretzels


1. Mix together the flour, salt, and baking soda until just combined. Set aside.

2. In an electric mixer beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Then add the egg, water,  and vanilla and mix again. With the mixer on low pour in the flour mixture until just combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Mix in the chocolate chunks and crushed pretzels until just incorporated.

3. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for at least four hours, or up to three days.

4. Preheat the oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with silicone or parchment paper. Scoop the dough into golf ball size balls onto the baking sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the centers are set. Cool on a wire rack and serve.
