Here is what you are going to need for 1 dozen cookies:
-1-1/4 cup All Purpose Flour
-1/4 tsp Baking Soda
-1/4 tsp Baking Powder
-1/8 tsp Cinnamon
-Pinch of Chile Powder
-1/4 tsp Kosher salt
-5 strips of cooked Bacon-crumbled
-2 tbsp reserved Bacon Fat Drippings
-4 tbsp Butter (room temperature)
-1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
-1/2 cup White Sugar
-1/2 cup Brown Sugar
-1 tsp Vanilla Extract
-1/3 cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (F) and line a baking sheet (or 2) with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, chile powder and salt. With a stand mixer, beat the butter and reserved bacon fat drippings on medium-high until smooth, about 1 minute. Beat in the white and brown sugar until creamy, about 4 minutes. Then add the egg and vanilla and beat until fluffy for about 2 minutes.
Reduce the speed of the mixer to low and add the flour. Mix until just combined and then add in the chocolate chips and crispy bacon.
For the cookie dough into 12 even sized balls and arrange them on the cookie sheet about 2 inches apart from each other. Flatten the cookie balls with your fingers and then bake for 12-14 minutes until golden brown. Let the cookies cool for about 2 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack. Pour yourself a giant glass of milk and enjoy yourself a seriously sinful cookie!
