With the title of this post you must be wondering "What in the world?".  No the power outage did not fry my brain..although when it went out for the second time I thought I might go a bit crazy!! I saw this cookie and was instantly curious.  So you know me I had to try it out!  My son described it as a chewy, sugary piece of bacon.  At first taste, I wasn't quite sure, but then found myself wanting more.  They are addicting!  If you like the sugar/salt combo this is for you!!
adapted from
1 cup bacon, cooked crispy and crumbled
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon maple syrup
2 3/4 cup flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs and vanilla and beat for 3 minutes. Add flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Mix until well blended. Now the important thing: Chill the dough for about 15-20 minutes in the fridge.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the 3 Tablespoons of sugar with the cinnamon in a small bowl. Scoop up your dough and roll it in the sugar mixture. I used a cookie scoop. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
 Bake for 10-12 minutes. You want them to still be light colored. After removing them from the oven, let them sit on the cookie sheet for one minute before removing them. 
Yum! I think I am hooked!
*UPDATE 1/29: I am glad I made this recipe out of pure curiosity and for something a bit different. They were yummy, but the question is "Will I ever make them again?" Probably Not!!


  1. You're killing me here! I have to get away from desserts but these look SOOOOO good!

  2. Hmmmm.. this is one of the few things you bake that doesn't make me want to try it.

    I am not much for bacon, so I don't think the cookie would tempt me... but my Hubs would probably love it.

  3. I just read the title of this recipe to my mom ... who went, "oooo... that's going to be good." I agree!

  4. Oh my heck! I would have never thought I would be looking at bacon cookies wishing I had some. But they sound excellent - and rather interesting =o)

  5. Wow...that's an interesting cookie. Love the name of them. Although it sounds strange, it also sounds really good.

  6. Wow. Those sure are amazing cookies. Glad to hear your power is back on!

  7. They got to you, Tiffannee. You are now adding bacon to cookies. I bet the contrast in flavors is delicious.

  8. Hmmmm, I will be trying these this week! Bacon bacon bacon!!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
