I can’t believe I finally made bacon sugar cookies; it’s been a long time coming. Here’s how the bacon sugar cookies came about. A fellow admin at work ordered a lunch for a few executives, and as usual, I chip in to help set up. It was a massive do-it-yourself salad bar with all the fixin’s, and you guessed it, bacon. There was a ton left over. I saved one large container of chopped bacon from being tossed out, and took it home. That night for dinner, Miles and I had homemade bacon pizza. I knew I was on the clock. I had hoped the caterer cooked the bacon that morning, as I didn’t want too many days to go by without using it. So the next morning I whipped up a batch of my rolled sugar cookie dough, and tossed in the bacon. My idea was to make a thin, crunchy cookie, chock full of bacon. That’s exactly what I got!
I let the cookies cool completely before trying one. They were really good. Sweet, salty, crunchy, …bacon-y. It was everything I was looking for, and the flavor was even better the next day. I made a ton of them, and as I knew I wouldn’t be able to eat them all at once, I gave away a lot of them. I instructed everyone to only keep them for two days as I had no idea how long they would stay fresh. I kept a few in the fridge just in case. I’m definitely going to have to research the shelf life of bacon filled desserts ‘cause I can’t wait to make these again.
