Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment or silicone baking mats.

Cut the bacon into 1/2-inch pieces. Cook in a large skillet until golden and crispy, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove to drain on paper towels, reserving the fat. Strain the fat (to remove the bacon bits) and chill in the fridge until set.

Whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder and cayenne in a small bowl. With an electric mixer, beat the butter, chilled bacon fat, sugars and vanilla until light and fluffy.

Add the eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each egg. Slowly add the flour mixture and stir to combine. Stir in the bacon and chocolate chunks.

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto the baking sheets, leaving 3 inches between each one.

Bake until set, 8 to 12 minutes.

    After watching the rerun of the program, I looked up our faves from before. This is not the same recipe from a year or two ago. It's not as good at all. The bacon fat was TOO much. It tastes like your licking the bacon pan. I like having the bacon chunks in there but I ended up dipping the cookies in chocolate to mellow the bacon grease so I wouldn't have to throw them out. I'm not sure why the recipe was changed. The bacon, candied first and put on top of the cookie before baking was great. I'll go back to that.

    Would have given this 5 stars but the bacon flavor was just subtle. I used thick cut bacon which allowed for a nice bite of bacon when eating the cookie. Using good quality chocolate really makes this cookie. Great recipe

    This a an excellent cookie! The recipe was easy and the taste is different in a great way. I substituted semi-sweet chips for bittersweet chocolate chopped and I candied my bacon. I've gotten nothing but rave reviews!!!
