Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 Cups flour
  • 1 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 Cup butter, softened
  • 1 Cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 Cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 Cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 Cup coarsely chopped nuts
  • 12 slices maple bacon, cooked and broken into 1-inch pieces

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 3 cookie sheets with parchment paper. Set aside. On another sheet of parchment paper, combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon, set aside.

Beat together butter and both sugars in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla.

Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture. Beat until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.

Spoon two tablespoons of cookie dough on to parchment paper. Space out the cookie dough so there are 6 cookies per sheet. Press 3-4 pieces of bacon into the center of each scoop of dough. Top with 1 tablespoon of cookie dough to fully cover the bacon. Repeat with the remaining cookies.

Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Bacon Shopping Tip

Look for center cut bacon which comes from a leaner part of the belly - you'll get more meat and less fat.

Bacon Cooking Tip

Cook bacon over medium to medium-low heat to prevent it from burning, and occasionally pour off the fat. You can save it for later use as a cooking oil.
