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.

    Maybe I missed it, but what is the yield on this recipe? How many cookies does it make?

  3. I have a sweet tooth but since I’m pescatarian I don’t eat pork so these cookies don’t appeal to me. I’m sure the bacon eaters will love them.

  4. Now this is the kind of cookie I like. I have never tried this combination but as a sweet tooth I can only imagine it would be delish!

  7. I have never had this flavor combo before! I am sure it tastes good, sweet and salty.

  8. Surprisingly Tim, I thought they would be great out of the oven too, but they’re even better completely cooled or even the next day.

  9. Thanks Sue! I feel that most of my dishes are born from me avoiding to waste food.
