- 1/2 cup butter flavored shortening
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter room temperature
- 1 cup brown sugar
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- ½ cup peanut butter
- 1 egg room temperature
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon corn starch
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 ½ cups chocolate chips
- 1 cup pretzels finely crushed
- ½ cup caramel bits
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, cream shortening, butter and both sugars together until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes
Beat in peanut butter, egg, and vanilla extract until throughly combined.
Stir in flour, corn starch, baking soda, and salt until just combined.
Fold in chocolate chips, pretzels, and caramel bits.
Spoon 1/4 cup of dough and roll into a ball (I used an ice cream scoop for this step) and place on prepared baking sheets about 4 inches apart.
Place in oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until edges are golden brown and the tops are cracked. It’s okay if they doesn’t look quite done in the middle.
Let cookies sit on baking sheet for 3 to 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to finish cooling. Enjoy!
