Before I get going on how awesome thesepretzel toffee rolo cookies are, can I please tell you that I am angry with my oven.

Yes, angry.Β  It’s a liar!

Since moving into our house {4 years ago!} my cookies haven’t been chewy and puffy.Β  They have been flat and crispy.Β  They spread like pancakes.Β  It makes me mad.

I have tried many things: dough chilling {helped but didn’t completely fix the problem}, extra flour {but they taste too dry!}, cornstarch {helped a bit}.Β  I was starting to think that I am just not capable of baking puffy cookies…waaaah!!

Then I decided to try one last thing:Β  oven thermometer.Β  And guys?Β  My oven is FULL OF LIES!Β  It is not ready when it says it is.Β  It is ready ten minutes later.

So armed with my new knowledge, I baked some cookies.Β  At the correct temperature.Β  And finally got my puffy cookies!

A few extra not-so-secret weapons also give thesepretzel toffee rolo cookies the ultimate texture: slightly crispy on the outside and chewy and tender on the inside:

1) cornstarch: gives the cookies that ultimate chewy center.

2) dough chilling.Β  This allows all the ingredients to meld and ensures that the butter is cool when the cookies go into the oven.Β  Warm butter=spreading cookies.Β  =angry Denise!

3) properly creamed butter and sugar.Β  This means beating for at least two minutes with a hand-held mixer, which ensures that the butter and sugar are light and fluffy.Β  Then add eggs and vanilla and beat for another full minute.
