I was originally going to keep this recipe to myself but my mom reminded me of the importance of sharing! ^__^
I'm calling this recipe (1st draft) due to me having a lot of ideas on how I'm going to make them even better! For now here is a simple recipe to make some killer bacon cookies. Enjoy!
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt (I used my BSKS&P)
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup crumbled bacon
For Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies:
1 cup Reese's peanut butter chips &
1/2 cup potato chips
For Salted Caramel Bacon Cookies:
1 1/2 cups caramel...
...I used those caramel candies, heated in the microwave for 15 seconds, added sea salt, flattened and cut into 1/4" cubes.
Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 375 F. Line two large baking sheets with wax paper.
Cook bacon seasoned with SBQ dry rub (optional). Let cool. Crumble.
Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.
Beat together butter and sugars in a large bowl with an electric mixer at high speed until pale and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes.
Add 3 eggs to butter mixture, beating with a mixer until creamy, about 1 minute.
Beat in vanilla.
Reduce speed to low and mix in flour mixture until just blended, then stir in bacon and chips.
Scoop 1/4 cup batter for each cookie, arranging mounds 3 inches apart, on two baking sheets. Flatten mounds into 3-inch rounds using moistened palm of your hand. Form remaining cookies on wax paper.
Bake, 1 sheet at a time, until golden, 13 to 15 minutes. Transfer cookies to a rack to cool and continue making cookies in same manner using cooled baking sheets.
