Peanut Butter Pretzel Cookies

So the first week of May is over. I can’t believe that Summer is around the corner and Q’s ball is this weekend! I was trying to think of a good cookie to bring up (trying to be a good girlfriend here) and instead of his usual favorite (Snickerdoodles), I thought I’d do a little experimenting in the kitchen.

These cookies are a good mix between crunchy and chewy, not too soft and not too hard (because we used a mix of butter and shortening). The added crunch and saltiness of the pretzels is a fun addition to an old favorite and I liked adding a little extra pizazz with the Fleur de Sel.

These babies stay fresh for a few days in an airtight container or you can pop them in the freezer in ziplocs and they’ll stay fresh for months. Since I made these cookies this past weekend and won’t be bringing them up until Thursday, I just bagged them and threw them in the freezer until then. Fingers crossed that Q loves them as much as I do.

Looks so delicious! Actually, anything with peanut butter is really good though. If you are interested, this is a very fascinating article about the history of Crisco. I HIGHLY recommend. :-)
