Bacon and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Need a last minute recipe for the Big Game?




Well this cookie is perfect for the guys on game day with your classic chocolate chip cookie combined with everyone's favorite...BACON!


Bacon and Chocolate Chip Cookie

2 and 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 and 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp kosher salt
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
10 pieces of cooked bacon, chopped


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon mat and set aside. In a medium bowl sift together flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In a large bowl beat butter on medium speed till creamy. Add in sugars and vanilla and beat till fully incorporated, scraping sides and bottom as necessary. Add in eggs one at a time just til incorporated in mixture. Slowly add in flour mixture to wet mixture, scraping sides and bottom of bowl as needed. Toss in chocolate chips and bacon, mix by hand with a spatula until batter is even.


To make large cookies, roll into 1.5 inch balls and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until cookies are golden brown. This yields 3 dozen cookies. For small cookies, drop by tablespoon-full onto prepared baking sheet and bake for 9-11 minutes, this yields 5 dozen cookies. Cool cookies for 2 minutes on pan, then cool completely on metal rack.


I like my cookies on the larger size which gives a slightly crunchy outside, but gooey-chewy inside!




This recipe is an adaption of my favorite chocolate chip cookie, which has changed so much over time I can't tell you where it really started!


Happy Baking!

  3. One of my favorite chocolate bars has bacon in it -- that'd be a cool substitution for regular chocolate chips in this recipe (although I'm sure it's fab regardless!).

  15. My first taste of a bacon chocolate chip cookie was over Christmas and I wasn't impressed although I'm always willing to attempt a do over. Your cookies look much different than the ones I had and think these look incredible. Can't wait to try these. I've got all the ingredients on hand to make these.
