Magical Marvelous Cookies

Just because the holidays are over doesn’t mean that cookies and sweets are. Far from it! It is the New Year, so time to live in the present moment and eat sweets after every meal!!! This cookie is perfect because it has anything and everything in it. This recipe was taken from the food blog, food52, which is one of my favorite places to visit on the web.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg

  • 1 1/2 cups of granola
  • 1/2 cup crushed salted pretzel pieces

dry ingredients.

* In a second bowl, beat the sugars and butter together until light and fluffy (note, if you are using your hand strength vs a machine, it takes a while). After beaten and combined well, add egg and vanilla (this helps it easier to beat together).

* Scoop dough into balls and place the cookies on baking sheets (lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil). THEN, freeze the plated cookies for at least 20 minutes. These cookies spread A LOT (way more than you think, trust me), so make sure that there is adequate space between each ball of cookie dough).

*Bake cookies for 13 minutes, rotating the sheet halfway through. These cookies end up being flat, thin, and fragile, so do not remove from sheets until cooled.
