Chocolate Chip Butterscotch Pretzel Cookies

I made these cookies a few weeks ago when we got together with friends then I made them again this week for our big 4th of July neighborhood celebration.  The sweet and salty combo in these is perfect and everyone raved about this. This recipe is from Cookies and Cups.

1 cup butter
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp sea salt
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup butterscotch chips
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1 cup coarsely chopped pretzels

Melt the butter in medium sauce pan over high heat. Once the butter begins to boil swirl the pan constantly. The butter will foam and then begin to change colors, once it reaches an amber color remove from heat and let cool for 20 minutes. In large mixing bowl combine flour, baking soda and sea salt. Once the butter has cooled, whisk in the brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract. Pour the butter mixture into the flour and stir.  Add in the butterscotch chips, chocolate chips and pretzels. Heat oven to 350.  Place 1 1/2 tbsp scoops on the a greased or lined sheet pan and bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 3 minutes before moving to a cooling rack.
