Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today calls for my first-ever batch of Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies… don’t you think?

Candied Bacon

Adapted from Group Recipes

  • 1 pound of thick-cute bacon (not smoked)
  • Light brown sugar
  • Coat the bacon with the brown sugar. Get dirty! Rub it all over the bacon!
  • Place the sugar-coated bacon on a parchment lined cookie sheet.  Line it! Just line it already! It’s a hard clean-up!
  • Put the pan in a pre-heated oven set to 350 degrees. Bake for approximately 15 minutes or until they pieces are crispy.
  • Let cool, chop into small pieces – about one cup of bacon for the cookies…
  • Original Toll House Cookies

    • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 cup butter or margarine, softened
    • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 2 large egg
    • 1 (12 ounce) package NESTLE® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
    • 1 cup chopped bacon
    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
    2. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and bacon. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
    3. Bake for 10 minutes (if you like ‘em chewy!) or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

    I saw these when perusing the local DC food blogs (a while back) for pictures from the Bake Sale for Haiti, I came across these bacon cookies and I’ve been obsessing ever since.

    Hey Casey – how do you think Li’l Lemon/CoCo/Fernando would like bacon and chocolate chips? Chew on that, and get back to me.

    PS – I’m still wondering if anyone who’s ever had a chocolate chip cookie in Baltimore has a favorite place to go buy them… If you have thoughts, please share them.

    1. Thanks! And no… haven’t made them yet. I’m sure you’re surprised. But when I do, I’ll make it a Tuesday night so I can give you and TK some on Wednesday.
