Chocolate and Peanut Butter Chip Pretzel Cookies

It's cookie time!
C is for cookie, that's good enough for me, 'cuz cookie, cookie, cookie starts with C.
Cookie monster is still my favorite Sesame Street Character EVEN THOUGH he apparently now eats vegetables.
I haven't watched Sesame Street for some time now......I'm a Looney Tunes kinda girl.... but I have been told that Cookie Monster eats vegetables and not cookies anymore.
What's up with that?
I can't bring myself to actually watch the show to check. It would make me really sad if they took away Cookies' cookies.
On the upside - I can still eat as many cookies as I want.
Take that society.

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Chip Pretzel Cookies

1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
pinch salt
1/2 cup butter, room temp
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter chips
1/2 cup broken up pretzel pieces
sea salt for sprinkling

In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, salt. Set aside.
In a larger bowl, beat butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add in egg and vanilla and beat to combine, scraping sides of bowl.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir with wooden spoon until just combined and there are no more streaks of flour. Stir in chips and pretzel bits.
Chill dough in fridge for about an hour.
Preheat oven to 350. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Scoop Tbsp of dough onto prepared pan about 2 inches apart. Sprinkle with sea salt.
Bake for approx 10 minutes. (Top should be light golden brown.)
Remove from oven and let cool on sheet for a few minutes before removing to wire rack to cool.

How can you not love a cookie that has all those wonderful ingredients?
Chocolate chips...
Peanut butter chips...
I even liked the sprinkle of salt on top. It definitely adds to the flavor of the cookie.
Cookie Monster would have these for breakfast every day....
if he were allowed to....
