Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies

You read the title right folks. Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies! I dedicate this post to Ron Swanson. So anyhow, you may be wondering how these cookies came about. I saw the recipe over at Adorkable Recipes, which by the way is such an amazing title for a food blog, and I immediately pinned them.

Back when I was preggo cravings had driven me to make peanut butter and bacon grilled sandwiches, which were delicious. Putting this in cookie form I knew would work well and I thank Adorkable for her recipe. If you dig salty/sweet combinations of food and aren't scared to try something a bit different, give these a try. I thought they were delicious.

One issue that I have is I tend to make cookies way over sized because I don't like babysitting the oven all evening to make small cookies. So that is the reason my cookies are gigantic and Adorkables are much smaller.

Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies Recipe
Makes 3-1/2 dozen cookies

  • 3/4 cup Jif Creamy Peanut Butter 
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1-1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. milk
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 6-8 bacon strips, crisply cooked and crumbled

1. Heat oven to 350-f degrees.

2. In a large bowl, cream together peanut butter, shortening, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla.  Add in the egg and beat to combine.

3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt.  Add in 3 increments to the creamed mixture, stirring after each addition. Mix just until blended.  Fold in crispy bacon crumbles. Scoop into tablespoon size balls of dough and place 2 inches apart onto a baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until set and just beginning to brown.  Cool completely on cooling racks.

This tasty Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad has a secret ingredient that gives the texture of the salad a wonderfully creamy texture. What is it ? Freshly whipped cream folded into the chicken, almond and grape salad. It works and it is wonderful.

Serve on a bed of curly lettuce, with crackers or on a croissant. Enjoy!

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.

Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake

Get ready for an insanely delicious and patriotic dessert, an American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake. This is a fun one to have the kiddos help decorate. We've made this cake for a few forth of July celebrations now and it is always a huge hit.

An alternative and even simpler way of making this cake would be to use raspberries instead of the strawberries for the decoration on top. You could even use raspberry Jell-o as well. Enjoy!

Big Crumb Coffee Cake with Rhubarb

I tried out this delicious recipe from the wonderful blog Smitten Kitchen. The only thing I forgot was to add a dusting of powdered sugar on top. I love rhubarb so this was a winner. Enjoy!
