Hey guys. It's Adrian Ashby once again, and we're gonna make a nice treat for you. We're gonna make bacon cookies. Now, what we have here are the bases in the foundations of good cookie batter. Right here, we've got flour, baking powder, and salt. In here, we have here egg, butter, sugar, and vanilla. So, what we're gonna do, we're gonna take one of our little spoons here, get all the dry goods incorporated nice and evenly. Okay, excellent.

Now, what we're gonna do is we're gonna take our wet and marry them together. Here we go. Nothing says dessert like butter and sugar, no? Okay. Now we're gonna mix, nice and slow. You don't really need flour going all over the place. Trust me, it's in there, okay? Now, it's time for some bacon. It's the best part. Alright. You wanna treat the bacon in this particular recipe like you would chocolate chips. You wanna fold them in. You want them to be evenly distributed in the batter, and you don't want them going all over the place. You wanna kinda control the direction that they're going in.

So, I think we're about ready to start spooning some batter onto our cookie sheet. And what we're gonna do is we are going to get some cooking spray onto our sheet. I like to go up and down. It covers everything. Maybe a little on the ends. There you go. Let's spoon some batter onto our cookie sheet. There you go, just like that. Just a nice spoonful. And you wanna keep them apart so that they don't bake into each other. You want the cookies to be separated. You want them to have their own space, okay. And there we go, just like that, just like that.

Each of these mounds are about a teaspoonful, and they're gonna make a nice size cookie. What's gonna happen is as they bake, they're gonna flatten out a little bit and rise just a little, so again, you want a nice amount of space between each cookie so that that they don't bake into each other. Excellent. Now, it's time to put these guys in the oven.

Well, alright. Our cookies have been in the oven for about maybe 15 minutes or so at 350. Let's take them out and see how they're doing. Oh, I smell it right now and they smell amazing. Oh boy. There we go. Bacon cookies. Now, don't let the shape, don't let the shape of the cookies deter you. They're still cookies, and they're still really, really good. Look at how soft they are. They're gonna be really chewy. They're gonna have all that bacon goodness in there.

So what you wanna do is you wanna let your cookies cool for about five minutes, and then, with a spatula, a nice metal spatula, you'll scoop them off, set them on a plate, and then they're ready to be enjoyed.
