Growing up, Peanut Butter and Bacon Sandwiches were my favorite breakfast; or after school snack; or midnight treat। So I knew when I saw this recipe, I had to make them। And with only 6 ingredients, it's my kind of easy. They also happen to be gluten free, if that matters to you.
This recipe only makes about 15 cookies, so I doubled the recipe. We can't be running out now, can we?
1 cup peanut butter (smooth or creamy - your preference)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
6 slices bacon, cooked crisp and diced small
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease a baking sheet with butter and set aside.
In a mixer combine peanut butter and sugars until well combined, about 2 minutes. Add egg and baking soda and mix for another 2 minutes.
Fold in cooked bacon.
Roll into large walnut sized balls and roll in sugar.
Transfer to greased baking sheet and create a criss-cross pattern with a fork. Bake for 10 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool on a baking sheet for five minutes.
These cookies will be very crumbly, and will not transport well. However, they shouldn't last that long.
Note to my mother: This would be a perfect treat for you to make during hunting season, when that peanut butter hater you married is out of town!
