The first recipe I'm sharing is from Taste of Home, Snow Day Cookies. I'm not sure who is more excited to get that phone call in the morning calling for a snow day, my son or myself. :) This is the perfect "everything but the kitchen sink" cookie that will make a snowy day complete.
I was skeptical when I saw the chips and pretzels, but they give a nice salty element to balance all the sweet ingredients. I made zero changes to the recipe, but I will make one next time- double the batch. These disappeared really fast! Thanks to Brittney M from GA for sharing the recipe!
