"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."

  • 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!

I made a batch of these cookies for Superbowl. They were fantastic. I did cook my bacon till crispy and blotted it really well with paper towels. My son said they were better than "better tha...

These came out wonderful. I didn't have an issue with grease. I made the bacon in the microwave and the paper towels absorbed so much of the grease, it turned out great. I also added some chocol...

I made these for my husband who loves peanut butter cookies and bacon. They were absolutely wonderful! I made the recipe exactly as written and wouldn't make any changes.

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...

Perfect as written. Will drizzle with chocolate next time!
