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.

Ha! Nice! Alas, I'm more in your wife's camp when it comes to cookies (sugar is my Kryptonite), but I might try something like this in future.Smiley

I love savory cookies. Even when i make sweet cookies, i cut back the sugar because I tend to find most recipes too sweet. I've never tried bacon in cookies, or any sweets really...maybe I should since it seems to be the craze right now lol.
