Bacon and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oh yes, you read that right! These cookies have an amazing chocolate and smoky flavor. These are defiantly my new favorite!


For the bacon:
8 slices thick cut bacon
1/2 cup brown sugar

For the cookies:
2-1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 Tblsp vanilla extract
1 whole egg
1 egg yolk
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

For the bacon:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  • Place bacon in a single layer on a foil lined sheet.

  • Sprinkle brown sugar on top of bacon strips. Bake for 30-45 minutes or until crispy, making sure to turn bacon over after half way.

  • Remove from oven and place on a wire rack for cooling. Once bacon has cooled chop it finely.

For the cookies:

  • Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees.

  • Sift flour and baking soda.

  • In a medium bowl, cream butter with the white and brown sugar.

  • Add vanilla, egg, and egg yolk to the bowl and beat until light and creamy.

  • Add flour mixture and mix well.

  • Add diced candied bacon and chocolate chips and stir until just combined.

  • Place golf ball sized balls of dough on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 18-20 minutes or until edges are brown. Remove from oven and let cookies sit on the pan for a couple of minutes before placing on a wire rack.
