Compost Cookies

While it isn't the most appetizing name, and the concept is really quite strange, these cookies are killer. I made them mostly because I thought that the photos would be cool. Whether or not they would taste good was another thing. Much to my surprise, everyone LOVED them. Apparently compost cookies might have to become a regular thing around here.

Compost cookies get their name because you throw anything sweet or salty that you have on hand into the dough. We used our Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookie Mix, and added in potato chips, pretzels, butterscotch chips, chocolate chips, and espresso powder. The proportions of sweet/salty/and crunchy with our soft and chewy Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies was perfect.

1/3 Cup small pretzels
