I made these cookies for my family and we all enjoyed them- especially me because I'm a bacon nut! Got to have my bacon fix!

How to Make New Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies

Step-by-Step

  • 1Heat 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.
  • 2In 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)
  • 3Roll 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!
