Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies

And now the good stuff!  Maybe I should’ve started with cookies to reel ya back in first instead of scaring you right off the bat with a long “life post”.  Well kudos to you if you’re still sticking around, these are for you darling!

Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies

Adapted from How Sweet It Is

1/2 cup softened unsalted butter

1/2 cup peanut butter

2/3 cup packed brown sugar

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1 egg+1 egg white or yolk (you basically need 1.5 eggs)

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 3/4-2 cups cup flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

6 slices crumbled bacon (pre-cooked, I bake mine in the oven, 20 min at 400 degrees)

1/2 cup cinnamon chips

1/2 cup peanut butter chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Cream together the butter, peanut butter, and sugars till fluffy-about 5 minutes.  Meanwhile in a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Back to the butter/sugar mixture, after it’s fluffy beat in the egg and vanilla another 2 minutes at medium high speed.  Then gradually add in the dry ingredients, mixing just till combined. Finally, stir in the bacon and peanut butter+cinnamon chips.  Drop by spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes till golden brown.  Enjoy many.
