Back-to-School Cookies

I made these cookies for the first time when my oldest daughter started kindergarten and now I have to bake them every year when it's time for 'back to school!'
Papa Drexler's Bavarian Pretzels

Fun to make, traditional pretzels are great with a nice mug of beer!
Avon's End of Summer Sunday Morning Peach Coffee Cake
Rating: Unrated
Picking peaches with my daughter and watching her create a peach/blueberry muffin inspired me to make this really nice and flavorful coffee cake with a tender crumb. Peaches and bananas are great together. The aroma while baking is heavenly. Not really restricted to Sunday mornings!
Touchdown Pizza
Rating: Unrated
My favorite sports pub serves this, and I've come up with a simple and delicious home version. Many local restaurants sell wing sauce, and most grocery stores carry it near the steak and BBQ sauces. It's rich, so serve in squares as an appetizer. Serve ranch dressing, celery, and carrot sticks on the side. Enjoy!
Chef John's Zucchini Bread Is the World's Most Mysterious Quick Loaf 
Embrace the mystery! Chef John's beautiful and delicious loaf turns zucchini into cake. It's also super fast and easy to make.
