If you’re worried that Santa might not bring you all the gifts on your list this year, just make him these Brown Butter Salted Caramel Pretzel Thumbprint cookies from Shanna of the sinfully sweet blog, Pineapple and Coconut

Shanna is a wife, mother, cook and self-taught baker who loves Hawaii and working out, a good thing considering how she comes up with decadent recipes like these sweet, salty, crunchy cookies all the time. They’re loaded with pretzels, Maldon sea salt, bourbon and brown butter, and they each have a thumbprint full of salted caramel making for a complex, rich and beautifully-textured cookie that everyone will love.

Check out Pineapple and Coconut for more wonderful recipes fit for the holidays and beyond. And don’t forget to let us know how these cookies turn out!
