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.

  • 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.
