Pretzel Sugar Cookies

Is that…?

Did she really…?
Oh no she didn’t…?
My mind works in funny little ways, funny, funny little ways.
You too can cure your PMS with these as I did.
This is how this recipe was created.
I was making sugar cookies from the box. heard me correct, from the box.
I was out of flour and sugar, and you can’t really make sugar cookies without those two vital ingredients. If you have a flour less- sugarless sugar cookie recipe..shoot me over the recipe! kids were pestering me for sugar cookies and all I had was a box of old sugar cookie mix that was about to expire and all the kids really wanted to do anyways was roll them in the sprinkles.
So I mixed up the cookies per the package directions. Put them on the cookie sheet and then a light bulb went off!!!(doesn’t happen often folks).
My daughter was eating Mr. Salty Pretzels(you know, the really salty ones). I grabbed a handful, crushed them up and rolled a few sugar cookies in them and baked them! Oh Dawn, Aggie and Bridgett you must make these my sugary-salty friends!
Dont knock it till ya try it my peeps! ohhhh..maybe drizzle some chocolate on top! HEAVEN

    Perfect timing! I have raging PMS right now and cannot seem to get enough salt. Or bread, or chips, or anything except fruit really.

    Sounds like a great idea for those of us who love salty/sweet! Yum!

    I'm a sucker for salty/sweet also. Which explains the chocolate-covered pretzels in the bowl on my counter…

    This sounds perfect! I have all I need to make them.

  11. 11

    Holy Yum!!!

    Yes please to those, although is it wrong that along with the really salty pretzels i'd love some choc chips in there too to melt in the middle for the most amazing salty/sweet combo!

    thanks to your kids for wanting sugar cookies i say!

    Well, if you can cure my PMS with them that's pretty impressive! πŸ˜‰

    They look great, sweet and salty is a good time.

  15. 15

    What a great idea! I've been all about putting pretzels into cookie dough lately, but haven't thought to roll them in pretzels – yum!

    This would definitely satiate my salty/sugar craving :D.

  17. 17

    simple, straightforward, brilliant thinking, leslie! toss in some chocolate chips or a drizzle of some sort and methinks you will have achieved cookie perfection. πŸ™‚

  18. 18

    Oh boy, I need about 17 of these right now to put a dent in this horrific bout of PMS. My family would be so grateful if you could send a huge box asap.
    These are so creative!

  19. 19

    I'm a second hand sufferer of PMS, can you prescribe these for a spouse? ha ha

    Great save!

    Definitely have me planning to try this next time I make sugar cookies!
    And definitely with the chocolate! πŸ˜‰

  24. 24

    hey leslie! thanks for the comment on The Sugar Bar. Oh it's been too long since I stopped by. Love your new picture on the right column and these cookies, aren't they just beautiful! πŸ™‚

  25. 25

    White trash cooking at its best! Or caramel drizzle and chocolate drizzle, mmm. Okay now I am thinking, rice krispie treats with pretzels, caramel and chocolate. And honey roasted peanuts. And with a beer. Okay, maybe not a beer cause I don't even like beer. But seriously Leslie, this is a great idea. And you know that I didn't mean you, I just always have my cheats too and feel guilty but they are just so damn good. And PMS, basically satisfy it or someone dies. And what is with my word verification? Hodscuds? Is that even a word. Maybe I can sue the internet for confusing me.

  26. 26

    You are so cool Leslie – this looks like the perfect cookie!

  27. 27

    Oh I love this! I love, love, love sugar cookies and pretzels, I never thought of combining the two!!!

  28. 28

    What a fun combination. Your justification of using the box cracked me up. You are right, Dawn is going to love these.

  29. 29

    Oh what a great combo….I would love to try these!

  30. 30

    Leave it to you!
    These are looking delish. Did it really cure your PMS? πŸ˜‰

  31. 31

    My mouth is watering. Salty and sweet! Who can beat that. I'll take these over the ones with sprinkles any day!

  32. 32

    I love sweet and salty combinations. It sounds like the perfect cookie.

  33. 33

    Looks good to me, Leslie! I think my kids would approve too πŸ™‚ And I'm so with you on your last post…it amazes me how hard it can be to find "real" food!

  34. 34

    Ha! Funny, but sounds delicious!

    WizzyTheStick says:

    I have to disagree with the desciption of this being white trash cooking. If the french can croon over salted caramels then this is right up that alley of salty sweet goodness. I've seen stranger salt sweet combos, bacon ice-cream anyone? I think I'd prefer one of these cookies

    everything, every craving done in one cookie (or 5 cookies).

    (my rss feed did NOT show you, did you change something? better not or i'll kick your white ass)

    tasteofbeirut says:

    Very tempting! 'cause sometimes you want both sweet and salty at the same time!

  44. 44

    Oh yeah, these totally work for me! Especially if there was chocolate on top, too.
