Greetings Friends and Fellow Residents of the Kingdom of Baconia!
Yes we are gathered together here in the kitchen of the Baconia Castle to dig into another delicious recipe I’ve found for you that involves our favorite ingredient – BACON! Animals AND people love the stuff so I work hard to find some yummy recipes for you with lots of good old bacon. This time of year when everyone is baking such yummy things for visitors and families, is there any such thing as TOO MANY BACON cookies? No – I thought you’d agree with me. That’s why today’s HOLIDAY RECIPE is for cookies! Not just any cookies but these beauties!
Bacon-Maple Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup butter, room temperature
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon maple extract
- 1/3 cup chopped cooked bacon (or – as usual – MORE if you like!!!!!!)
- 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
- Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
- Beat together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar with an electric mixer until smooth. Add one egg; beat until blended into the butter mixture. Add the remaining egg, vanilla extract, and maple extract; beat until well blended and slightly fluffy. Stir in the flour mixture a little at a time, mixing just until combined. Stir in the bacon and chocolate chips. Scoop by rounded tablespoonsful onto prepared cookie sheets.
- Bake in the preheated oven until edges turn golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the oven, and cool on a wire rack.
Oh indeed it does!! Cats know it…………….
Dogs know it………
Doctors prescribe it!……….
I think bacon should be a major food group and maybe you do too. We just have to convince everyone else that WE are right! Here in my Kingdom we don’t have to be convinced – WE RULE!
Now – get cookin’ !! Christmas is just around the corner!
