Local Savour Peanut Butter Cookie with Chocolate Pretzels

As I stumble into the kitchen for my morning cup of coffee, my husband greets me with a “good-morning” and with a look of excitement as he says “I had a dream last night. Do you want to hear it? It was about a c-o-o-k-i-e.” Maybe it’s because the food discussions we have been having lately or my dream dishes post or maybe it’s because he saw the cookie monster SNL audition or it could just be the fact he has been down with the flu and highly medicated on codeine cough syrup every night for the last few weeks – whatever the reason I am curious about this dream.

“Let me take a few sips of my coffee and then we can discuss your dream,” I say. This girl needs her coffee in the morning. With kids nearby, he attempts to “spell” the dream out, after all, when the word “cookie” is said in our house chaos ensues between kids and dogs eager to get one. I am unable to focus on his spelling so we go into the other room to whisper and that’s when he tells me…”peanut butter and chocolate covered pretzels in a cookie.”

“Um, I think that qualifies as a GOOD dream,” I say. Thus, the Local Savour Peanut Butter Cookie with Chocolate Pretzels was born, thanks for dreaming honey.

I can not be responsible for any addiction that comes from eating, devouring and shoveling these bad boys in but I can be responsible for giving you the recipe to enjoy with your loved ones. These cookies store well in the freezer and are perfect for those in-case-of-emergency-eat-a-cookie moments…you know the ones.
