Bacon Cookies
Originally uploaded by elkit.

The bacon is sizzling in the oven, a stick of butter is melting in a small saucepan, and I am crushing corn flakes. That can only mean one thing ... I am making J's bacon cookies again. I am going to post the recipe here too, to make sure it won't get lost, because that would be downright tragic.

Here goes:
• 1/2 pound bacon
• 1/2 cup butter
• 3/4 cup brown sugar*
• 1 egg
• 1 cup of flour
• 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
• 2 cups of multi-grain flakes or corn flakes
• 1/2 cup raisins
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Cook bacon on a cookie sheet until very crisp, drain well and break into 1/2 inch pieces.
3. Melt a stick of butter on low heat in a small saucepan. (You can do this while the bacon is cooking - but don't do anything else until you're done breaking bacon ... wouldn't that be a great name for a band? Breakin' Bacon.)
4. Beat together butter and sugar till light and fluffy.
5. Beat in egg.
6. Combine flour and baking soda; stir into butter mixture.
7. Stir in bacon, mult-grain flakes and raisins.
8. Drop rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Space 2 inches apart.
9. Bake for 15-18 minutes.
10. Remove to rack to cool - about 2 minutes, then remove from rack.
11. Tell all your friends about your bacon cookies. Watch them repeat incredulously, "BACON cookies?", and make mental notes on how many say that's just plain wrong, how many think this is very cool and marvelous, and how many recall correctly that you are just a total weirdo.

*I've switched to using brown sugar in this recipe. Tastes even better, I think.

Go for it, Kris! Bacon cookies are one of the corner stones of my plan for world domination.
Corrupting the world, one cookie at a time. :-D

i would much like to try these. and it's not the bacon to which i have the aversion, it's the raisins.

blech.

Gwendomama! How nice of you to visit! You could always leave the raisins out if you don't like them. I've had a couple of people ask me if the dark bits were chocolate chips ... now there's an idea!

gwendomama

HI there Elke! Now chocolate and bacon...there's something to consider.
I? Am VERY excited because I? Have just ordered all three flavors of bacon salt.

Elkit

I did too!!!!
Coincidence? I think not ... we may have to have a "salt-off".
