Step By Step  

Chocolate chip cookies. Bacon. Bourbon. Could this get any better?

As prepared by Buns in my Oven,

These bacon-wrapped cookies are sweet, savory and addicting!

Do you know how I know when I’m on to something good? Like when I have the real possibility of a winner recipe?

It’s when I mention what I’m making to my husband or kids and they get this weirded out look on their face.

You’re wrapping cookie dough in bacon and adding bourbon? Gross, mom. Get a life.

Aaaaand, then the cookies come out of the oven, the glaze gets drizzled on, and I immediately have to make a second batch because they were practically inhaled by my people.

The craziest concoctions tend to be the favorites in my house!

 

Bourbon Bacon Cookies

So, to make these nutso cookies, you’re going to need to partially fry up some bacon. You just want to cook it for a minute or two per side, so that it’s still flexible and definitely not done enough to eat, but not completely raw. Pat the grease off the bacon.

 

Bourbon Bacon Cookies

Grab yourself some frozen cookie dough balls. You can make your own cookie dough, scoop it out, and then freeze it or you can be a lazy cheater pants and just grab a bag from the grocery store. (I’m a lazy cheater pants today, if you must know.)

 

Bourbon Bacon Cookies

Now, wrap one slice of bacon around each ball of dough. If you wrap it tightly, the cookie will ooze out around the edges and look like a bow or a butterfly. No bueno. Wrap it loosely with plenty of room for the dough to expand.

Bake your dough according to your recipe, but keep in mind that frozen dough usually takes a couple of minutes longer. This is good, because the bacon needs that extra time to finish cooking.

 

Bourbon Bacon Cookies

While the cookies are cooling, let’s whip up a glaze. You’ll just need some maple syrup (the real stuff), some bourbon, and some powdered sugar. Whisk it together, pour some in a shot glass, and pound it back. Good stuff, right?

Once the cookies have cooled, drizzle on the glaze.

That’s it, friends. You’ve made some crazy cookies that are sure to be gobbled up and talked about for the rest of forever.

Tips  

Let the bacon cool just enough to be able to handle it easily. If it’s too cool, it won’t be very flexible, but if it's too hot you’ll burn yourself.
