It seems that bacon is one of the most popular ingredients and it has moved from a strictly savory treat to a sweet treat. I was weirded out by the thought of bacon in a dessert but after making these cookies, I was hooked.
Other bacon-y cookie recipes that I've seen seem to be mostly savory cookies and/or crispy cookies. My goal was to create a bacon-y cookie that is sweet and chewy because I'm not a fan of crispy cookies. Mission completed.
These cookies are super sweet and have a wonderful texture. Just be sure to get a nice thick cut bacon for these bad boys, the thin stuff won't give it the right texture. I got my bacon from a local butcher so it was real thick. And delicious. I totally ate some of the bacon that was meant for the cookies. #sorrynotsorry
