"Peanut butter and bacon combine to make these delicious treats! My husband thought the recipe sounded like a waste of perfectly good bacon but loved the outcome and requests them often." — cc51

creamy peanut butter
cooked and diced bacon
white sugar, or as needed
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't expect them to come together, but they did. They look like regular cookies. My first impression is that they taste like sweet bacon flavored peanut butter. I'll see what others think. Right now, I doubt I'd make them again. Quick and easy though! **Update** I have now made these a second time. I had some bacon leftover from breakfast and since these are so quick and easy and I was in a cookie baking mood, I decided to give them a second try. I still think it is a weird combination but DH seems to really like them as do his coworkers.
I was looking for a peanut butter and bacon type recipe. I picked this one in a hurry and realized halfway through the main ingredient was sugar...no flour at all! The flavor is good but they are chewy, flat and every bite I feel like my mouth fills with grease. I just couldn't stop thinking how much sugar I was ingesting. I love my sweets but this was just too much of a good thing!
