Last Bite

Today I went under the assumption that if you add bacon to something it makes that something better. Add Bacon to Lettuce and Tomato and you have the simply fantastic BLT! Without the bacon you get two veggies on soggy toast. About a week ago Allison made some Chocolate Chip Cookies and I was feeling experimental so I spread a layer of JIF Chunky Peanut Butter on the cookie, it was delicious. At that point I had an epiphany.

If Peanut Butter is Good....

If Peanut Butter is delicious…

And Chocolate Chip Cookies are too...

And so are Chocolate Chip Cookies…

And Bacon is awesome...

And we know that Bacon makes everything better then…

Then why not add Peanut Butter to a Chocolate Chip Cookie

If I spread some Peanut Butter on a Chocolate Chip Cookie…

Then top it off with Bacon

And then add some delicious bacon…

Choco-Nutty-Bacontastic!

I will create the ultimate in cookie/bacon fusion… The Choco-Nutty-Bacontastic Cookie!

Now this cookie was very tasty but it could certainly be better. The cookie itself was from the Relay for Life yesterday and it was not that fresh. The peanut butter was not JIF Chunky (my all time favorite) so that is a let down. The bacon was good, nice and crispy but I think it could have been better if it was a little thicker, sort of like the bacon you get at Cracker Barrel. So, for a future experiment I think I’ll make sure I make a fresh batch of Chocolate Chip cookies using the Tollhouse recipe with extra brown sugar (makes them chewier), a big bit of JIF Chunky Peanut Butter and some well cooked thick cut bacon.

    Oh my gosh that sounds good, not sure I would try it though but my son wants me to run out and get all the ingredients right now! I do however love how puffy and delicious those cookies are looking…is it a family recipe?

    Consider sprinkling some Bac-O’s into your tollhouse cookie mix

    You may be onto something here. I suggest you try cooking the bacon in a way I saw on Jacques Pepin’s cooking show. Quoted from Jacques:

    “I learned how to cook bacon in a microwave oven from my wife and I now never cook it any other way. It’s easy and fast and crisps the bacon uniformly. There can be variations in timing from one microwave to another, but regular bacon generally cooks in about 4 minutes and thicker slices require up to 6 minutes. Cook the thick slices for 4 minutes initially and then check them every 30 seconds or so and continue until the bacon is cooked to your liking. Choose as lean a bacon as you can find. I prefer thick-sliced bacon. Brushing the top of the slices with maple syrup or honey imparts a delicious taste.

    Arrange 4 bacon slices side by side in one layer on a corrugated microwave tray. Brush with 2 teaspoons maple syrup, turn, and brush on the other side with 2 teaspoons more syrup. Cover loosely with a sheet of paper towel and microwave on high for 4 minutes. Check, cook for another 30 seconds, and then check again. Continue cooking, checking every 30 seconds, until the bacon is well crisped (about 6 minutes total).”

    I actually bought one of those microwave bacon trays so I could try this recipe, and it is delicious. It makes the bacon sweet enough so that yes, it COULD go into cookies!

    I can get behind chocolate chip cookies with crunchy peanut butter, but you lost me with the bacon. No thanks. I guess I just don’t like bacon that much.

    But, hey – keep up the experiments. You just might come up with the next great thing.

    Jennifer,
    The cookies were not made by me, my recipe is a thinner chewier cookie. I’ll have to make everything myself this time. It cracks me up that your son wanted you to run out and get all the ingredients, that is a riot.

  6. Drew says:

    Lenny,
    Are Bac-o the real bacon bits or fake ones? I’d consider cooking the bacon and putting it in the mix but doing it my way gets a really great bacon layer on the cookies.

  7. Drew says:

    Christine,
    I forgot to put on here how I cook bacon. I put the bacon on a cookie cooling tray and then into a cookie tray. I’d also spray the cooling tray with Pam. The bacon cooks uniformly and there is minimal grease on the bacon, the tray on the other hand gets a ton of it. I do like the way that you suggested as well.

  8. Drew says:

    Anna,
    Allison did not like the bacon as well. But me, I loved them and can’t wait to try them again.

    Wow!…talk about a Choco-sugar/carb/cholestro blast!…Why not add a little more healthful nutrition and throw a half sliced strawberry
    on top;…Now there ya go!

    Craig,
    You made me laugh out loud, I don’t think a slice of strawberry would do a lick of good. But then again I wasn’t creating a heal food. LOL

    Drew,

    I believe this is sheer genious! It’s the perfect combination of salty and sweet. I want to cook real bacon and add it to my chocolate chip cookies too!!
    Have you ever heard of this delightful thing called a “bacon Mat?” You weave the bacon like a mat as you did in Kindergarten, you then wrap it around any item of your choice… chocolate chip cookies sound perfect, then bake briefly to crisp up the bacon!!!
    Keep up the experiements, and remember… you ain’t cookin’ till you add bacon!!

  14. Drew says:

    Bradlee,
    Thanks very much. I’m glad to hear such passion about bacon! Fantastic idea on the bacon mat.
