Toffee-Pretzel Peanut Butter Cookies {definitely not your average PB cookie}

Once in awhile, I come across a recipe that makes me say, "I have to make that NOW." This was one of those recipes. It came to my inbox from Real Simple, and it's a keeper. Even though I was powerless to resist making it, I am able to resist eating more than one at a time, so that's good. It's also good to note that Real Simple says there are 145 calories per cookie, which isn't too bad. For those who have to count carbs like we do, there are 17 carbs per cookie, with 42 cookies per batch.

Toffee-Pretzel Peanut Butter Cookies 
adapted from Real Simple

2 cups creamy peanut butter {or use crunchy and cut out the cocktail peanuts}
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
3/4 cup broken salted pretzels
1 cup Heath toffee bits
1/2 cup cocktail peanuts

Heat oven to 350. Line baking sheets with parchment. Mix together first six ingredients until smooth. Fold in pretzels and toffee bits (and peanuts if using). Roll dough into balls (about 1 T. each) and place 2 inches apart on parchment. Use a fork to flatten each ball. Bake until puffed and golden, about 10-12 minutes. Cool slightly on baking sheet and then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
