  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat peanut butter, 1/2 cup white sugar, and brown sugar together in the bowl of a stand mixer until well combined. Add egg and baking soda; beat until smooth, 1 minute. Fold in bacon. Form dough into walnut-sized balls.
  3. Pour 2 tablespoons white sugar into a bowl; roll balls in the sugar until coated. Arrange coated balls on a baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Cooling on the baking sheet is important because without flour in the dough they are fragile when hot!
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I was skeptical about these because of them having no butter and no flour. I used crunchy peanut butter because that is all I have in the house. I doubt that makes a difference. I really didn...

I was not able to add my change to the recipe on here. To deal with the grease and get delicious, crispy on the outside soft on the inside cookies, fry up your bacon bits in a cast iron or oth...

To anyone who thought their cookies were greasy - the last step in frying up bacon is - drain it and pat between paper towels or newspaper until the grease is gone. Can't make the cookies greasy...

I did not have a problem with the grease, but I did make sure to soak up grease off the bacon with paper towels before I added it to the mixture. I also added 1 tsp vanilla extract and 1 tsp bak...

Yummy. Maybe a little sweet so may add a bit more savoury or bacon next time.
