Sweet and Salty Snickerdoodle Pretzel Cookies

May 8, 2012

These pretzel snickerdoodle cookies from See You in the Morning are a sweet and salty treat.  Instead of baking the same old batch of chocolate chip cookies, go for something a little different.  Snickerdoodles are essentially a spiced sugar cookie.  This recipe goes beyond just cinnamon and adds cardamom and ginger to the mix.  The pretzel give the cookie a nice crunch and a salty bite.  Pretzel snickerdoodles give you the best of both worlds- you might not need another snack.
