Serves: 2 dozen cookies
Ingredients
  • ¾ cup (170g) unsalted butter, melted
  • ¾ cup (135g) light brown sugar
  • ½ cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1 egg, large
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2¼ cups (280g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 4-6 slices maple-candied bacon, chopped
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, whisk the light brown sugar and granulated sugar with the melted butter until smooth. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract and mix until incorporated. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture and combine with a rubber spatula.
  3. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips.
  4. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the dough for at least 2 hours.
  5. Once the dough has been thoroughly chilled, remove it from the refrigerator and preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  6. Place a silicone baking mat onto a baking sheet. Using a tablespoon, roll the dough into small cylinders and place on the baking mat. Be careful not to overcrowd the baking sheet as the cookies will spread out.
  7. Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes. These cookies will be light in color, so don't wait for them to brown (overcooking the cookies will make them less soft). After removing the cookies from the oven, leave them on the silicone baking mat for 1 to 2 minutes and gently press a few pieces of the chopped candied bacon into each cookie. Then, carefully transfer the cookies onto a wire rack to cool fully.
  8. Repeat with remaining dough.
