Bacon and Peanut Butter Chips Cookies

By Chef Lippe

For those of you who follow my blog you will know that I love BACON…. There is the post http://wp.me/p2n8ji-bG The 3 “B’s” bacon, bourbon and Brownies, then there was the candied bacon for ice cream and the list goes on. Today is Bacon and Peanut Butter and believe me when I say this is a GREAT flavor combination.

Ingredients:

1 cup butter (2 sticks)

1 cup sugar

¾ cup packed light brown sugar

1 Tablespoon corn syrup

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 large eggs

1 ¾ cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons salt

¾ cup chocolate chips

¾ cup peanut butter chips

½ cup graham cracker crumbs

½ cup oats (NOT quick cooking)

¾ cup crushed kettle potato chips

¾ cup crushed pretzels

½ cup crumbled bacon pieces

Directions

With a mixer cream the butter, sugar and corn syrup for 3 minutes until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and beat for 10 minutes. (sugar will dissolve and mixture will double in size).

Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together and on a low speed, slowly add flour mixture to the butter and egg mixture. Mix just until flour is incorporated into butter (about 1 minute)

On low speed add chocolate chips, graham cracker crumbs, oats and peanut butter chips and mix for ½ minute. Now add in the crushed potato chips, pretzels and bacon. Mixing on low until just mixed (1/2 minute).

This step is important and do not cook your cookies from room temperature! Make ice cream scoop size balls (about 5 oz each) then wrap them in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour (or up to a week).

Heat oven to 400. Arrange cold cookie balls on a parchment lined cookie sheet about 4” apart. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes.  At 9 minutes the cookies should be browned on the edges, leave in the oven until the center just start to brown.

Cool and eat!

Cookies will keep fresh for 5 days in an airtight container or for a month in the freezer.
