Pretzel Caramel Chip Cookies & Reynolds New Baking Sheets

I've had these Pretzel Caramel Chip Cookies on my to bake list for quite a while now. I came across this recipe last year on Pinterest and couldn't wait to make them. I love sweet and salty, so I knew these cookies would be nothing less than fabulous.

This isn't your regular chocolate chip cookie. These cookies are packed with caramel bits, pretzel pieces, and two types of chips, chocolate and butterscotch. Everything all mixed together is a match made in heaven! 


My whole family seriously polished off these cookies in two days, so I have declared these as our new favorite cookie. These cookies were so awesome that more than likely they will be ending up on my Christmas Cookie trays this year.

Speaking of baking cookies do you use parchment paper to cook and bake with? I do and I'm super excited about the new pre-cut parchment baking sheets from Reynolds? I was not aware of these new sheets until Reynolds sent me a package to bake with.  



I'm always up for anything that makes my life just a little easier in the kitchen, and these new Reynolds Non Stick Parchment Baking Sheets do not disappoint. Each sheet is pre-cut pieces of parchment paper sized to fit most standard baking sheets. For my baking pans they fit perfectly and no rolling of the paper.  

love using parchment paper, because it makes clean up is a snap, but I hate fighting with the roll because the sheets never lay flat. No problem with these new baking sheets, because they come right out of the box flat! Now I don't have to fight or cut the parchment paper roll anymore.


Each sheet is non stick, oven safe and fits snug onto your baking sheet (fits most standard baking sheets).  

Your cookies will cook evenly and slide right off the sheet without sticking or breaking. These new baking sheets will come in very handy when the holidays roll around. These sheets are perfect for candy making, cookie baking, decorating, rolling out dough and roasting veggies.

Each box contains 22 sheets and is priced at approximately $3.50. You can find these parchment cookie baking sheets at your local Walmart with all the plastic wrap and aluminum foil. 


Happy cooking and Baking.

Hey Tina! I did NOT know that Reynolds made PRE-cut parchment paper! I hate the ROLL too! Now they just need to make the pre-cut for round cake pans:) Oh yeah, could you, like, FEDEX me some of those cookies. I would like some NOW with my coffee please!

Tina Butler said... #

LOL These cookies are crazy good, so there would be none left to ship. I guess until they come out with round sheets we will just have to cut these. I hate the battle of the parchment roll.

I love chocolate and pretzels. Pretzels in cookies must be even better!

Are caramel bits found where the chocolate chips are? I've never seen them before, but they sound yummy!

Anonymous said... #

what are caramel bits. Do you just chop up the wrapped kraft caramels? Thank you.

Tina Butler said... #

The caramel bits are located in the baking isle by the chocolate chips. Here is a link to the packaging so you know what you are looking for.

I love the sweet/salty combos...the cookies look fabulous. You don't find the caramel bits get tough after baking? I've had that happen before. Thanks for sharing about the new baking sheets - love 'em and will be scouting them out at WM soon.

Do you have to use the parchment paper or can you just lightly grease a cookie sheet?

I do believe I need these. Oh Yumm!

Tina, something I ran across by accident....
there is a cake decorating store in my city and they carry parchment sheets precut to fit the same pan you used. They are very inexpensive 50 for $3.95. So if you have a cake store near by you may want to give them a call to see if they carry them too.
Thanks for your recipes....my family has enjoyed many of them! Blessings, Tina

I wonder how these would freeze? I made a double batch of these this morning and thought abut saving some for later.These are very different from typical chocolate chip cookies and my family loves them. Thanks - Terri P

Colleen said... #

These look Fantastic~ Nothing better than having alittle sweetness along with some saltness taste.

In answer to Anonymous ?
I will mix up a double batch only I will greeze part of the cookie dough itself by forming a log onto waxed paper, wrapping well and storing in the freezer for later use. I don't like freezing baked cookies as sometimes I will forget about them or they end up getting a freezer taste to them.

Joannes Craft store carries round pre-cut parchment paper in 2 different sizes.

Cindie said... #

I hope it's not a silly question, but should I use salted or unsalted butter? I've baked lots of cookies, but it's not always clear about the unsalted or salted butter as I've used recipes that called for wither or.

Can you make these a day ahead or do the pretzels get soggy?

Tina Butler said... #

Yes you can make them ahead of time. The second day ours cookies were still crunchy.

Just found the website today and bookmarked so many yummy things I want to try, including these! I'll be checking in periodically!

First batch is getting ready to come out of the oven. I added some potato chip pieces as well in the style of a local coffee shop. Can't wait to try them!

I tried the baking sheets for the first time, along with this recipe. The baking sheets were a hit; the recipe, not so much. My family thought these cookies were just "OK".

I did substitute margarine for the butter (it was all I had at the time) so if I do make them again I would want to use butter to see if that's what would make the difference.

Tina Butler said... #

Try this recipe with butter, because it really makes a difference in flavor and texture.

Jodi LeGault said... #

Can you reuse the papers? I've never used them before. Thanks :)

Tina Butler said... #

I remove the cookies and add more cookie dough to the same piece of parchment paper.

Can I just use wrapped caramel and cut them into smaller pieces?
