Patriotic Pretzel Cookies

Verna Clayton


What is not to like about sweet and salty all in one bite - if you can find the red, white and blue M&M's that would be the perfect call - I could however not find them - so we used what we could find - they came out nice and chewy and get had a great crunch - love the combo - salt and sweet
