Bacon goes well with everything: beef, salad, chocolate. So why not butter cookies? When we found this recipe for German Bacon Cookies, we just had to try it.
But this was another dish that made me wish I had a kitchen appliance: an electric mixer. The dough had so little liquid that mixing it by hand was grueling.
The cookies came out more like a savory shortbread. In my mind, cookies are sweet, and these cookies have no sugar. They seem like they would be a good complement to another dish, such as croutons for a salad or crackers for a soup.
