Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies
**we did make a few changes - see below**
1/2 cup butter (softened, feel free to replace some with bacon grease)
1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/8 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup dark chocolate chunks
5 strips, chopped bacon (Candied Bacon)
1. Cream the butter and sugar in a bowl.
2. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.
3. Mix the flour, baking soda and salt in another bowl.
4. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet.
5. Mix in the chocolate and the bacon.
6. Place the dough onto a cookie sheet one table spoon at a time.
7. Bake in a 350 degree F preheated oven for 8-10 minutes.
Look you can see the bacon in the cookie
**Browned Butter- Brown the butter in a heavy-bottom saucepan over medium-low heat. Pay close attention (it can be hard to see the browning because of the foam). About 3-5 minutes or until the butter has a nutty smell. Let cool.
**Milk Chocolate Chips, because that is what we had on hand.
**Before baking- chill dough for about 20 minutes, then shape into balls and place onto parchment-lined baking sheet. (Now is the time to freeze. Place balls into freezer. Once frozen store in Ziploc bags.)
**Extra melted Chocolate Chips for garnish- follow directions on package to melt.
**Dip fork into melted chocolate and drizzle over cookies while they are cooling.
**Extra Candied Bacon for garnish and nibbling while cooking.
**We do not recommend using a plastic sandwich bag to drizzle the chocolate. Our bag kept bursting and gave us big plops of chocolate. Not quite the look we were going for.
This is the look that we were going for
Stressed spelled backwards is DESSERTS. Coincidence?
I think not!
