Made some Bacon Pecan Cookies this weekend
I am not really into sweets (a big disappointment for my wife), so I made some savory cookies made with bacon and pecans.
This was the first time for me to use my wife's mixer.
I have some pecan trees in back, plus I smoked some homemade bacon not to long ago. I also used some herbs from my herb garden.
Then, being a guy, I decided to bake them on my grill with hickory wood.
Turns out my wife loved them, even though they were not sweet. I think they will be great with beer.
The recipe was pretty simple. I looked around the Internet for some savory cookie ideas and came across a bunch of recipes that used a cup of flour, a stick of butter, a half pound of a soft cheese, an egg and a cup of pecans. So that is pretty much what I used plus I added 5 strips of chopped, fried bacon and some fresh herbs.
I have some step-by-step pictures on my blog
if you are interested. I usually take way to many photos while I am cooking.
I am more into BBQ than baking which should be pretty obvious, and I was able to use my wife's mixer without braking it, but I think I will stick to baking pizzas instead of cookies on my grill.
