DIRECTIONS

  • An important note- Be sure to use real bacon bits, not Bacos *See large print at the bottom of this post*.
  • Also, you can make your own bacon bits, just make sure you pat down the bacon chunks with paper towels to remove as much extra bacon grease as possible.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
  • Beat together the butter, sugars, flavouring and eggs until creamy.
  • 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.
  • Add in chocolate chips and bacon bits. Stir until well integrated.
  • Place dough on a sheet of waxed paper and refrigerate at least an hour.
  • 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.
  • 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 make the glaze.
  • Maple cinnamon glaze Reipe.
  • 2 cups powdered sugar.
  • 1 tablespoon maple extract.
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (It has been suggested that 1 teaspoon may be a bit much, so go ahead and add to taste).
  • Enough water to make a thick glaze.
  • Mix all ingredients together until smooth and creamy. If lumpy, use a whisk.
  • Spread a small amount of the glaze on the top of each cookie and top with a small piece of crisp cooked bacon.
