M&M and Pretzel Cookie Bars #BakingIdeas

Still looking for last minute gift ideas? Why not make M&M and Pretzel Cookie Bars to ship off to friends and family.

Despite this past weekend being my birthday weekend, somehow I managed to spend the majority of it in the kitchen instead of relaxing and letting someone else do the work.  If I told you how much butter, sugar and flour I went through your jaw would probably hit the floor.   It’s a good thing I have plenty of friends and co-workers that love sweets because I want these out of my house!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup granulated white sugar
