Peanut Brittle Bacon Cookies

Servings: 4 dozen


1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup peanut brittle, cracked into 1/4-inch pieces
1 1/2 cups bacon, crisply cooked and cut into 1/4-inch pieces

Cooking Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Mix in eggs, one at a time. Add peanut butter and mix until incorporated.

In a separate bowl, sift together flour, salt and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients one cup at a time to the butter mixture, scraping the bowl as needed. Stir in peanut brittle and bacon.

Roll dough into 1/2-inch balls and place on parchment-lined cookie sheets. Flatten each cookie with the palm of your hand to about 1-inch in diameter. Bake about 15 minutes or until the edges begin to lightly brown. Remove to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Store in an airtight container for up to one week.
