In the bowl of a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and brown sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl halfway through.
1 Cup light brown sugar, packed
3/4 Cup granulated sugar
2 Stick Unsalted butter, softened
With the mixer running, add the vanilla bean paste, then the eggs, 1 at a time, mixing to incorporate between each addition, 5-7 minutes total. Scrape down the sides of the bowl halfway through.
1 Teaspoon vanilla bean paste
2 Large eggs, room temperature
In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, salt, baking soda, and apple pie spice.
3 Cup all-purpose flour
1 Teaspoon baking soda
1/2 Teaspoon apple pie spice
1 Teaspoon kosher salt
With the mixer running on low speed, gradually add the dry ingredients, one third at a time, to the wet ingredients, mixing between additions until just incorporated.
Add the semisweet and milk chocolate chips, English toffee and caramel bits, and smoked pretzels and stir with a rubber spatula until well-distributed.
1 Cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 Cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 Cup english toffee bits
1 bag of caramel bits
Use a cookie scoop to portion out the dough, then place on the prepared baking sheets, spacing at least 3 inches apart.
Place the baking sheets on the grill grates. Close the lid and bake the cookies, rotating the pans 180° halfway through, until the edges are light golden brown and the centers are soft and gooey, 10-12 minutes. Remove the baking sheets from the grill and transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool for at least 10 minutes before serving. Leftover cookies will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. Enjoy!
