Beach Day Cookies

The last time we were at the beach I made a comment about how pretzels were the perfect beach snack; they are easy to eat, satisfying and travel well. I came upon this cookie recipe that uses Pretzel M&M's and thought hmmmm, the perfect snack mixed into a cookie???? Oh yea! These are awesomely yummy cookies and  I know they are going to make our Memorial Day beach trip the best ever!

2 1/4 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 sticks unsalted butter, room temp
1 c packed light brown sugar
1/2 c granulated sugar
1 tsp salt
1 TBSP vanilla
1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
1 c Pretzel M&M's
1 c toffee pieces (Heath)
1 1/2 c milk chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Whisk flour and baking soda, set aside. In a stand mixer cream butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar, beat on high speed until fluffy. Add the salt, vanilla, whole egg and egg yolk, beat until combined. Add the Pretzel M&M's and beat for a few seconds until slightly crushed. Gradually add flour mixture, mixing on low speed until just combined. Mix in the chocolate chips and toffee chips.

Using a small cookie scoop, scoop dough onto prepared cookie sheets, slightly flatten with fingers. Bake for 11-13 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Let sit on baking sheet a few minutes before transferring to cooling rack. Makes 40ish  cookies.
