I really enjoy this cookie! I agree with the comments about more bacon...I used just over 1/2 c. and it's still not enough! I think next time I will use equal parts chocolate chip cookie and bacon. I actually rubbed the bacon down with brown sugar before I put it in the oven. I cooked it too long and some of it burned slightly, but I think the crisp actually is better in the cookie. Also, I didn't use as much butter--about 3/4 c. then I tossed in a bit of the bacon grease...I didn't measure it, but it was probably something like 1.5 tablespoons. I also added more flour and a bit more baking powder in hopes they would rise a bit more--again, no measurements. They still didn't rise as much as I would have liked. I also pressed a bit of bacon on the top after I tried the first batch and decided it wasn't bacon-y enough. All in all, I would give it a 5 star rating when I add more bacon and figure out how to make them rise more!
