Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 stick unsalted butter, cold, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup semisweet chocolate chunks
1 cup [Candied] Bacon (to candy: check this out – I just used regular)
Preheat oven to 325F. Grease OR line with parchment paper several baking sheets.
Beat the sugars and butter together until smooth. Mix in the egg, vanilla, and baking soda. Mix together the flour and salt, then mix them into the batter. Stir in the chocolate chunks and bacon bits.
Using a small cookie scoop (teaspoon), scoop the cookie dough into small balls, about 1-inch in diameter, and place them 2 inches apart on each of the baking sheets. Bake for 14-16 minutes, or until pale golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.
