I have made my fair share of awesome cookies. One of the most popular recipes I have ever made for this site was the Chocolate Cookies Recipe. It was a smash hit and has become legend around the bacon blog world (or at least that is how I feel about it). I decided to try to beat my previous Chocolate Cookies recipe with this awesome Bacon Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe. In all honesty, I like these cookies better. I made these a bit softer and jam-packed with flavour thanks to the caramelized bacon strips. For the readers who don’t like chocolate but love the idea of bacon and cookies together. You need to try this recipe, the ‘bacon candy’ in the cookies just bring out this awesome flavour.
