December 12, 2007 | By More

baconcookies.pngMuffin over at Never Bashful With Butter has come up with a crazy and unique recipe. Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies!

It seems the whole thing started when she and her husband were having a conversation about foods that could or couldn’t be made better with bacon. I’m sure the South Park guys would have a field day with this discussion.

How they arrived on Chocolate Chip Cookies with Bacon, we’ll never know.

For all you interested in making Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies, here is an abbreviated version of the recipe.

Ingredients:

Cookies

  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon hazelnut (or almond) extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups bacon bits

Maple Cinnamon Glaze

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon maple extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons of water (enough to make a thick glaze)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Beat together the butter, sugars, flavouring and eggs until creamy.
  3. In another bowl, sift together the dry ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and stir together. Dough will be slightly soft. If you want a cakier cookie, add another half cup of flour.
  4. Add in chocolate chips and bacon bits. Stir until well integrated.
  5. Place dough on a sheet of waxed paper and refrigerate at least an hour.
  6. Remove dough from fridge, pinch off 1 1/2 inch pieces of dough and roll into balls. Set dough balls about 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten dough balls slightly with your fingers in the center.
  7. Bake cookies for about 10 minutes, or until the dough starts to turn golden brown. Allow cookies to cool on a cooling rack while you ready the glaze.
  8. Mix all of the maple cinnamon glaze ingredients together until smooth and creamy. If lumpy, use a whisk.
  9. Spread a small amount of the glaze on the top of each cookie and top with a small piece of crisp cooked bacon.
