These chewy chocolate chip pretzel cookies are a new favorite. I’ve been wanting to make chocolate chip pretzel cookies for some time, but most of the recipes I found make crunchy rather than chewy cookies. I like chewy, cake like cookies so I took matters into my own hands. I added broken pretzels to the top of my favorite chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe and I LOVE how they turned out. Adding a little sea salt to the top would make these really good, too. I believe these might be my new favorite cookies. I highly recommend trying this recipe out yourself. The recipe calls for corn starch and I *think* that’s what makes them so fluffy and tall.
