Birthday Cake-Oreo Pretzel Cookies

Birthday Cake-Oreo Pretzel Cookies | The Blonde Buckeye

I know that’s a mouthful, but hopefully your mouth can be full of Birthday Cake-Oreo Pretzel Cookies soon.  Last week I decided to make some sort of ‘cookies n’ cream’ cookie, & when I went to store I found out it was national pretzel day.  As I was shopping for some pretzels to add in, I saw them…  Birthday Cake Oreos (wwwhat?).  I couldn’t not buy them.  Let me tell you, they are good… dare I say, better than regular Oreos.  The end result: the cookies were kind of crispy on the edges, but very chewy & soft in the middle.  The most delicious kind of cookie, if you ask me.  You could also break up the pretzels in the cookies too, but I just like the way they look on the top.
