  1. Ok, Kate – your recipes are always amazing, but this one has me stumped. Is it more like a snack or a treat? Everything I have tried of yours has been great, so I know this will be as well…and very fun and creative. 🙂

  2. I think I shall have to try them. I DO have all the ingredients in the house, BUT I am supposed to be dieting.

  3. I would have never thought to put bacon in a cookie. What an interesting concept! 😀 Maple naturally goes with bacon, too!

  4. Bacon and chocolate chip cookies are great too!!! I have found a great recipe for them on another blog. They were a hit with everyone at work!

  7. I just had to click on your WFMW link, because this sounds so intriguing! Sounds like breakfast, and my kids would think cookies for breakfast was cool!

  8. Okay, I’ll admit I’m skeptical about this but it does make sense. It seems like I always get syrup on my bacon if I’m eating it with pancakes and it doesn’t taste terrible so I may need to make a small batch to test it out! Thanks for sharing your recipe =)

  9. “He ate bacon at every meal. You can’t do that.” from the movie City Slickers after the trail boss Curly has just died.

    Bacon Cookies sound like they will rock. Thanks for the excellent tip.

  10. Girl. Seriously….BACON in a cookie. Only you could post this recipe and I would KNOW it will be GREAT! My hubby and his friends are always joking about how bacon will make ANYTHING better. I will have to make a batch for the guys.

  11. I’ve just baked a batch of these – they’re delicious, a lot like the Alton Brown cookies, but obviously more maple-bacony! I’m curious whether they’ll soften and get chewier over the next day or so… either way, a definite thumbs-up!

  12. These cookies are good, but don’t taste like bacon or maple. Quite disappointing. I used REAL maple syrup and can’t taste it whatsoever..

  13. Ha, I saw this at the bottom of your latest post in the LinkWithin. you’re crazy. did you come up with this yourself? It’s brilliant. Like bacon waffles. A dream, really. LOVE bacon. lol. Probably a little too much. 🙂

  14. Hello! I came across your recipe a couple of days ago during a web search. I just made them today and I have to say thank you for coming up with this fantastic recipe! It makes four dozen if anyone is curious about that. I used a table spoon-sized scoop that puts perfect little balls of the dough on the cookie sheet. Be sure and keep an eye on these cookies during the last two minutes. You can literally see them change from very light to deep golden brown in the span of a minute. As for the taste and texture, you can definitely taste the bacon if you use a whole pound like I did. Use a sharp knife and slice the bacon in small pieces before putting it in the pan and you won’t have to crumble it. I went with the maple syrup instead of maple flavoring. The texture of the cookies is that they are thin and pliable with a crunchy edge. They are decadent and buttery and addictive! Highly recommend!

  15. I’ve made these cookies twice. The second batch was better than the first. I’m sure the next batch will be even better. I recently took these to a function for dessert and everyone ranted about how good these cookies are. Thank you for sharing this awesome recipe.

  16. Only want to say your article is as tonishing. The clearness in your post is simply spectacular and i can take for granted you are an expert on this field. Thanks a million and please keep up the good work.

  17. Would you be interested over a link exchange? Kindly e-mail me a message. Besides, I am fascinated in putting advertising on that website. I cannot find the get in touch with sheets so right here I am.

  18. These cookies were an experiment and suprise for my husband for Father’s Day! Perfect, I tell you! In our cookies we used the imitation maple, butter flavored Crisco, and 1 cup Hormel bacon bits! Baked for 8 minutes and let them finish on a wire cooling rack! Wonderful!!!
