I as at the General's house for a brunch and these were so good I had to ask for the recipe! They're sweet and salty - a favorite combination of mine. My son asked me to make them the other day and I searched and couldn't find anything like them so figured I'd post it to keep the recipe alive. Hope you enjoy!

Directions

  1. cook bacon till crisp - then break into small pieces.
  2. Beat together butter and sugar till fluffy, beat in egg, combine dry ingredients and mix into butter mixture.
  3. Add bacon, corn flakes, and raisins and stir in by hand.
  4. Drop by teaspoonful onto UNgreased cookie sheet 2" apart.
  5. Bake 350 for 15 minutes. Cool 1 minutes, move to rack.

These were great. But I would definitely cut the raisins in half as they were overwhelming and I wanted to taste the bacon more. :) Also, they get HUGE when you bake them, so keep the batter balls small. Thank you!

This was a great addition for a breakfast in a bag, to carry to Churchill Downs to watch the Derby contenders practice, very early in the morning. The children liked them, and along with juice, a hard boiled egg, and banana, was a decent nutrient with little fuss or muss. Next time I would add more bacon and less sugar, but that's not a criticism, just a personal preference.

I was really disappointed w/ this recipe. They sounded very intriguing and different but they weren't anything special. Couldn't taste the bacon so if you make them, I would definitely add more bacon if you're hoping to taste it in the cookies. I wrote a review last night that said I wouldn't be making these again but after having one this morning, I am willing to give them another try. This is one cookie that tasted better the next day instead of right out of the oven!
