Recipe by Vannillaa
After reading about 'Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies', I thought that it sounded good and worth a try. Found a few recipes, but then I 'tweaked' a basic cookie dough recipe, as I was out of chocolate chips. I substituted butterscotch chips and they turned out to be very good. As for the bacon, I just used a low-sodium which I had on hand. If using regular bacon, you might want to omit the salt in the recipe.

I did half a cup of butter and half a cup of bacon fat because I wanted the flavor of bacon but not the chewy pieces in the cookie. I added some white chocolate chips because I had some leftovers. I placed four tiny slices of bacon on top of the cookie to represent the bacon. Turned out crispy on the outside and soft and tasty on the inside! Love butterscotch!
