There is a vendor at the Hillcrest farmers market on Sundays that sells a dozen cookies for $20. I disregarded them because 1/2 the time I'm too broke too pay attention...except for these...thank you Rowen for opening my eyes!
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1 lb bacon (I like using Farmer John Ole' Fashion Premium maple)
- 2 ounces brown sugar, for sprinkling (Ive also used white sugar in this step and it comes out fine)
- 1Make the candied bacon: Heat up your favorite makin bacon pan to a medium high -- basically, just make the bacon the way you normally would except after placing in the pan sprinkle with sugar, after you flip the bacon sprinkle again. If the grease in the pan gets TOO syrupy just lower the heat a little and let the bacon cook slow and sweet -- If you usually place done bacon on a paper towel like i do FORGET IT! It gets to be too sticky to be of any use. I just place on a plate right next to the stove. Try not to eat too much of the bacon when your done because you don't want to skimp with the cookies.
- 2Make the cookies: Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. beat butter, both sugars, vanilla, almond extract and maple flavor in a large bowl. add eggs, one at a time, beating well. gradually beat in flour mixture. Mix in morsels and bacon pieces. I find the dough to be too soft so I leave mine to firm up in the fridge for 30 minutes or so.
- 3Spoon dough (about a Tbsp per cookie) onto an ungreased baking sheet and bake at 375°F for 9-11 minutes -- ENJOY!
