It is hard to belive that Christmas is just right around the corner. I don't think  I will be ready, but it usually works out in the end.  So here is a twist for the traditional chocolate chip cookie, I added about a cup of crushed pretzel. Turned out really tasty. 

Now I would like to see what you have to share.

Merry Christmas!
