Bacon cookies? Yep! Chopped Candied Bacon adds little nuggets of smoky-savory sweetness to a classic chocolate chip cookie. I use a combo of all-purpose and whole wheat pastry flour (you can find it in most supermarkets) for a little nutritional virtue. But, truth is, these bacon cookies are all about indulgence.  I like the richness of dark chocolate chips, but semisweet or milk chocolate would be just as delicious. For a really down-home treat, use a mix of chocolate and peanut butter chips. This is a recipe that invites your innovation.

  4. 2 large eggs
  5. 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  6. 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  7. 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine butter and sugars in a large bowl, and beat with a mixer until smooth and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Beat in vanilla.

Combine flour, baking soda and salt, stirring with a whisk. Add to sugar mixture and beat until thoroughly combined. Add chips, nuts and Candied Bacon; beat at low speed until combined. Chill dough for 30 minutes.
