Chocolate Chip Bacon Cookies

Ingredients

  • 6 slices maple-cured bacon, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chunks

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F
  2. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Crumble the bacon in into bits.
  3. Beat the sugar, butter, eggs, and vanilla extract with an electric mixer in a large bowl until fluffy and smooth. Stir in flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix in the chocolate chips and bacon. Drop cookies by rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  4. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Let stand 5 minutes.

Chocolate Waffle

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 6 egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • Waffle Iron

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  2. Place the butter and chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl. Cook on High power for 1 minute, then stir. Continue to cook for 15 seconds at a time, stirring each time until chocolate is melted and smooth. Set aside to cool slightly.
  3. When the chocolate mixture is fairly cool, stir in the milk, egg whites, and vanilla. Pour this into the dry ingredients, and mix just until blended.
  4. Preheat the waffle iron, and coat with cooking spray. Spoon waffle batter onto the hot iron in desired amounts. Close, and cook until the iron stops steaming and take the waffles out. Repeat with remaining batter. P.S. this makes about 10 waffles.

Snickerdoodle Cookies

Snickerdoodles-4066

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (2 sticks or 230g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 and 1/3 cup (267g) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups (375g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar*
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 and 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F degrees.
  2. Mix 1/4 cup granulated sugar with 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside for later.
  3. In a large bowl, cream the softened butter for about 1 minute keeping a steady speed. Then add the sugar to the butter until the mixture is fluffy and light in color. Next mix in the egg and vanilla.
  4. In a medium size bowl, whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. After slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. The dough is quite thick and you may have to stir the rest by hand.
  5. Take the dough and roll into a ball after they are formed, roll them into the cinnamon-sugar mixture from step 2.
  6. Bake cookies for 11-12 minutes. Add, if desired, extra cinnamon-sugar mixture to the top of the cookies.
