  • 1 box Krusteaz Shortbread Cookie Mix
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup toffee bits
  • 1/3 cup crushed pretzels


  • Get the full recipe for the Pretzel Toffee Shortbread Cookies here.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. If necessary, soften butter by microwaving 10-15 seconds on high power.
  • Place cookie mix and butter in a large bowl. Use a hand mixer or wooden spoon (or a stand mixer) and mix until dough forms. Mix in chocolate chips, toffee bits, and crushed pretzel pieces.
  • Scoop dough according to desired cookie size, approximately 2 tablespoons, onto prepared cookie sheet. If you like a flatter shortbread cookie, you can flatten slightly with the palm of your hand. Bake 10-14 minutes, until bottoms are slightly golden brown. Cool on cookie sheet 5 minutes before removing to a rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
  • These cookies are sturdy enough for packaging so they make great gifts!
