MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 10, 2014

"Every time I make these, they disappear quickly. I have friends that say they don?t like coconut, but they love these cookies."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 9, 2014

"A very tasty cookie. I loved the salty pretzels. I did adjust just a bit. I added a bit more flour after reading the other reviews. Almost 3 cups total. And I reduced the sugars as I don't like super sweet. I used 2/3 cup of each of the sugars. They turned out perfect and my 3 year old twins and I loved them."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 3, 2014

"These are insane cookies! Seems to need the extra flour which others recommended. The dough was just to die for, so yummy, the cookie a bit less but probably because the pretzels weren't crunchy anymore! But, still amazing."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 2, 2014

"This is one of the best cookie recipes I have ever tried! These cookies are rich, which makes eating just one a possibility."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 30, 2014

"Love the sweet/salty flavor of this cookie. It's similar to the Toll House recipe with additional mix-ins. I increased the flour to 3 c. as others did, and used dark chocolate M&M's. I used the waffle-shaped mini pretzels, which made for good-sized chunks. I used half butter/half Crisco and the cookies did not spread too much. Using a #50 cookie dough scoop (roughly 1.5 Tbsp) I got 5 dozen cookies."
