The Basic Fundamentals

When I look at pretzel twists, I see elephant & puppy dog ears. Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee & Mississippi State fans can prepare these irresistible cookies with candies in team colors for a dose of extra spirit. 

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups ap flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp kosher salt
2 cups pretzel twists
2 cups M&M’s
1 cup granola cereal
Pretzel twists

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cream the butter & the sugars with a stand mixer on Medium speed. Stop to scrape the sides of the bowl often with a rubber spatula. Add the peanut butter & vanilla mixing just until combined. Add the eggs & blend just until combined. Whisk together the flour, the soda & the salt. Add to the butter mixture & mix on Low speed. Just before completely blended, add the pretzels, M&M’s & granola until combined. Portion the dough using a 1/4 cup measuring cup & place 5 pieces onto each parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Press a pretzel twist into the center of each piece of dough, if desired. Bake one pan at a time 10 to 12 minutes. Repeat with the remaining pans.

The Extra Point

Substitute white chocolate or milk chocolate morsels in place of the M&M’s for a tasty flavor variation.
