Since we love bacon, we had tried making German bacon cookies, which unfortunately left us disappointed. However, we didn't want to give up on bacon cookies. So when I found this recipe for bacon chocolate chip cookies, I just had to make them.
The bacon is cooked with brown sugar sprinkled liberally on top, which makes it very sweet. It's delicious enough to eat on its own as a dessert, but I think it would also make a good topping for ice cream.
The bacon isn't that prominent in the cookies because it's candied, which takes away the saltiness and crispiness of the bacon. Davneet thought the cookies would have been better if the bacon had been left alone, so we'll probably try making bacon chocolate chip cookies again, without candied bacon, and with the New York Times chocolate chip cookie recipe.
