Ingredients

1 c
butter, softened -no substitute
1/2 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 c
granulated sugar
2 large
eggs
1/3 c
creamy peanut butter
2 1/4 c
all purpose flour
1 tsp
salt
1 Tbsp
baking powder
3/4 c
peanut brittle, cracked into 1/4 inch pieces-or candy brittle bits
1 c
crispy cooked , finely chopped bacon-more or less
NOTE:
1/2 cup of crushed , some whole peanuts may be used in place of the peanut brittle, if desired.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat oven to 350^.Prepare parchment lined cookie sheets;set aside.
Cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy.Mix in eggs, one at a time. Add peanut butter and mix until incorporated.
2
In a separate bowl, sift together flour, salt and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients one cup at a time to the butter mixture, scraping the bowl as needed. Stir in peanut brittle and Bacon. (I used only 1 cup bacon -it was plenty)
3
Roll dough into 1/2 inch balls and place on prepared cookie sheets. Flatten each cookie with the palm of your hand to about 1-inch in diameter or use the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar.
Bake about 15 minutes or until the edges begin to lightly brown.
(I baked mine about 10-12 minutes) Leave on tray to cool 5 minutes , before removing to paper (I use paper grocery bags)to absorb some of the bacon grease.
Store in an airtight container for soft cookie, up to one week; or uncovered for crisper cookie.(I like crisper) didn't last one day at my house!
