Salty and Sweet Cookies

 I have two philosophies in life:  salty....and sweet.  It's the perfect combination.  Like a band aide to the soul, or at least my taste buds.  There is a cookie at Central Market that I 'visit' so frequently, if it were human, it would need a restraining order.  I finally found a recipe that mimics my little chocolate victim. 
If you need a new addiction, and who doesn't?  Meet, a sweet and salty cookie....or salty and sweet....whatever your poison.  I found this recipe at sugarcooking.  :O) 
Sweet and Salty Cookie
Ingredients:  1 1/2 c. flour, 1/2 t. salt, 1/4 t. baking soda, 1/2 c. butter (room temp), 1/2 c. packed brown sugar, 1/3 c. sugar, 1 egg, 1 t. vanilla, 1 c. milk chocolate chips, 1/2 c. peanut butter chips, 1/2 c. broken pretzel pieces, sea salt
1.  Sift flour, baking soda, and salt. 
2.  In a large bowl, beat butter, sugar and add egg and vanilla. 
3.  Add flour.  Once it's combined add chips and pretzels.  Cover and place it fridge for 1 hour. 
4.  Preheat oven 350.  Line baking sheet with parchment paper.  Place round balls onto the paper, sprinkle each with a little sea salt and bake for 10 minutes.  This makes at least 2 dozen cookies
