It was our love for cookies, chocolate and bacon that inspired us to create these fabulous cookies. Now with Denny's restaurant having their Baconalia and Foodbuzz wanting their featured publishers to share recipes it has given us the opportunity to share once again the best cookies ever. Most people would think that these items would not make sense together but in actuality they make perfect sense, the smoky bacon against the sweet of the chocolate is an amazing flavor combination. Please take this opportunity to step out of your box and give these cookies a try.
2 1/4 C. - Flour
1 Tsp. - Baking Soda
1/2 Tsp. - Salt
2 Sticks - Butter (soft)
3/4 C. - Sugar
3/4 C. - Brown Sugar
2 Tsp. - Vanilla
2 - Eggs
1 C. - Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Chips
1 C. - Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Chips
8 Thick - Slices Of Bacon (cooked)
Cook the bacon until golden and crispy (my husband does it on the BBQ) set aside in the fridge to cool. Mix the flour and baking soda in a bowl and set aside. Beat the butter, sugar, and brown sugar at medium speed until creamy and light in color (about 4 minutes). Add the vanilla and one egg at a time on low speed until well combined. Gradually add in the flour mixture into the creamed mixture, stir in the chips and cut the bacon into pieces about the same size as the chips and mix well. Drop onto a parchment, lined baking sheet and cook in a 375 degree oven for 10-13 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet for about 1 minutes then transfer to waxed paper to set and cool.
