Just a quick question: what kind of measurement is your stick of butter?  I mean, do you have an equilivilant or approximation in Cups, perhaps?  I am teh dum when it comes to conversion.
But I need to make these cookies - I've never encountered anything that bacon hasn't improved, so . . . .
Im so in!

A stick of butter is a half a cup, or 8 tablespoons.
I hope you like the cookies!!

OK PearlyWhirly.... and beans and toast are good?! I'll take my bacon and pancakes and maple syrup any day Cheesy



beans and toast are actually awesome! but they have to be proper tinned baked beans in tomato sauce..and you have to lavishly butter the toast (with salted butter!)..I found when I was in the US, that your butter isnt a salty as we like it here in ireland (and to a slightly lesser extent the UK) but it is another example of the salt and sweet combo..divine!..

having said that, I have been off sugar and carbs completely for 9 of the last 10 weeks, and for the one week break when I could eat sugar and carbs, i did have baked beans..but I found them disgustingly sweet..i am going to have to make my own...I am going to have to find a whole new way of cooking once I get off this plan, low carb, sugar substitutes..etc... its worth it..I have lost 35lbs in 10 weeks..which has nothing to do with the thread..I am just bragging!...

I am so glad I thouroughly read your post & didn't just assume I could simply add some crispy bacon to my regular cookie dough, because saving the bacon grease to make popcorn is genius! I have a 'whirley pop' popcorn popper & just know that the bacon grease is going to work great in it! Thank you!  Wink

I make my popcorn in a whirley popper too! The bacon grease works great in it.

Congrats on your success edelC! I had beans and toast while in the UK, I'm not ragging on them, but they in no way can be compared to the deliciousness of syrup, bacon, and pancakes! I think we all can agree that sweet and salty in a great taste combo, no matter how that combo is made  Cheesy

teachart..of course you are right, beans and toast, no matter how much of a comfort food are nothing like bacon pancakes and syrup....*drool*

I seem to have been doing a lot of drooling over this post..mind you I have stopped short of licking the screen...

as to the bacon grease usage, why not make bacon flavored vodka?

I had no idea this was even possible to do....
Do you drink bacon vodka or just use it in cooking? I'm intrigued, tell us more!!

Made these today!  Well haven't baked them off just yet.  Making them for my boyfriend cause when he heard about these he nearly died.  However, I added maple extract instead of vanilla and butterscotch chips instead of chocolate since he prefers butterscotch to chocolate.  I tasted the dough and it was AMAZING!!!! This coming from a person who DOES NOT like bacon.  Thanks for the recipe.
