Adding real bacon bits to chocolate chip cookie dough makes a savory twist on a sweet treat.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup bread flour
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 11⁄2 cups turbinado sugar or light brown sugar
  • 3⁄4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1⁄8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1⁄4 pound bacon, fried crisp, cooled, and crumbled

Instructions:

  1. Preheat grill to 325 F, and set it up for indirect cooking. Grease cookie sheets, or line them with parchment paper or baking mats; set aside.
  2. Sift flours, salt, and baking soda into a large bowl; set aside.
  3. Using a mixer, combine sugar and butter. Add egg, egg yolk, cinnamon, and vanilla, and mix until creamy. Blend in sifted ingredients, then fold in chocolate chips and crumbled bacon.
  4. Drop 1⁄4-cup-size dough balls onto prepared cookie sheets, 3 inches apart.
  5. Bake for 9 minutes, then turn and bake for an additional 7 to 9 minutes. Cool slightly on cookie sheets before moving to a rack to finish cooling.
