Those Bar Cookies Were Yummy Using Just Pretzels and Peanuts

I made these bar cookies again, this time using peanuts in place of mixed nuts, plus the pretzels. I made these for our church's coffee hour, along with some gingersnaps. The pretzel and peanut cookies went over well. And here I was afraid they wouldn't look as good using just the peanut/pretzel combo. Anyway, a few people asked me how to make them and said they'd never seen pretzels used in cookies.


  1. I think I would prefer peanuts and pretzels over mixed nuts--unless you were using pecans. Glad they went over well. Necessity is the mother of invention, right?

  2. They do look good! I'm starting to go through your older posts, thanks for sharing your wealth of knowledge!
