And the winner is…
Well, I’ve run a few taste tests, and the conclusion of all of my tasters was the same. The cookies are delicious, but you barely notice the bacon. They aren’t show-stoppers for their novelty, but they’re great for conversation, and as far as chocolate chip cookies go, they’re actually pretty good. With or without the bacon. Just chewy enough. A hint of maple. A little bit of savoriness, if you pay close attention. Yum.
You can find the recipe here.
If you ARE looking for a show-stopper, though, I would recommend the German Pancake.
Gaze upon its beauty…
I found a recipe for these babies in a G.Q. (of all places), and I’m going to give it FIVE STARS in all of the following categories: taste, aesthetics, smell, impressiveness, novelty, ease of baking. Seriously. Make one. Make ten!
