Peanut Butter Bacon and Dark Chocolate Cookies

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup chunky or smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • about 6 slices of bacon, cooked, cooled and coarsely chopped
  • 1 large handful dark chocolate pieces
  • granulated sugar for coating cookies.

Instructions

  1. To cook the bacon, place a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and lay uncooked bacon on top of the foil in a single layer. Bake for 12-15 minutes until cooked through, browned, and crisp. Remove from the oven and place on a plate to cool before chopping for the cookies.
  2. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine peanut butter and sugars until well combined. Add egg and baking soda and mix until well combined. Fold in cooked bacon and chocolate pieces.
  4. Roll into large walnut sized balls and if you’d like, roll the dough balls in granulated sugar before placing on the cookie sheet and creating a cris-cross pattern with a fork.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool on a baking sheet for five minutes, then transfer to… your mouth.
