Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie with Pretzel Crust

What a weekend!  I will never understand the need of people to dress up head to toe in green and then some more.  Did you enjoy your St. Patrick's Day?

It has been a while since I posted a cookie, and this is not exactly a cookie but it is quite good.  My favorite cookie is the Compost cookie from Milk.  It takes sweet and salty together in one cookie by adding potato chips or pretzels to the mix of other sweet add-ins.

This little treat has a pretzel crust that is then filled with cookie dough.  I stuck to the basic chocolate chip recipe but can you imagine the other possibilities... M&Ms, coconut? Yes, definitely coconut next time.

I used a pan that was a bit too small so I had a bit of extra dough that quickly turned into some cookies (just in case we didn't have time to cut a slice).
