a quizzical cookie

The cookies above are the standards, the familiar, the childhood favorites.  This week's cookie recipe (our first cookie recipe on the blog!) is not your typical cookie.  In fact, it's so atypical that I didn't even bother to include it in my illustration.  People can relate to a chocolate chip cookie illustration but a "pretzel apple peanut cookie" might draw some questioning gazes.  "What's that?"

Do not, however, let the uniqueness of this recipe turn you off.  These are really delicious...perhaps all the more so for their quirkiness.  Now, let me say that this is a chunky, crunchy, highly-textured cookie.  My 19-month-old has yet to find an appreciation for the chunks.  He likes the flavor and likes all of the ingredients individually, but the multi-textured creation is a little advanced for his palate.  You, on the other hand, will no doubt find this chunky characteristic appealing and addictive, and your taste buds will thank you for adding a little extra interest to the day.

I have nothing against a good, old-fashioned oatmeal cookie, and chocolate chips are a favorite in this house, but this cookie is for those days when you feel adventurous, daring, and in need of something new.  In short, when you want a cookie that marches to its own beat (now that's a fun visual!), Peanut Apple Pretzel Cookie's your guy!


  1. I always come to your blog knowing I will find something unusual, striking, and tasty but peanut apple pretzel cookies really take the cake! Or cookie, as the case may be....

  2. Unique? Yes! Yummy? Yes!! Honestly, these cookies are terrific:-)
