Sweet & Salty Chunky Cookies

It’s a cookie day.  I found this recipe in a Taste of Home cookbook my daughter gave me for Mother’s Day, thought I would try it. I like the combination of the sweet of the chocolate chips and raisins and the salty of the peanuts and pretzels.  A little bit different twist for a cookie.  We like them!

Sweet & Salty Chunk Cookies

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
3 tsp vanilla
2½ cups flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
2 cups pretzel sticks, broken in half or thirds
1 cup coarsely chopped dry roasted peanuts
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 350°.  In large bowl, cream butter and sugars.  Add eggs and vanilla, mix well.  Mix in flour and baking powder.

Stir in pretzels, peanuts, chocolate chip, and raisins.  Bake for 12-14 minutes until golden brown.
