Flourless Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies #SundaySupper

Flourless Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies

I used to be a bacon addict.  Weekend mornings meant Mom was either microwaving a batch or we were headed to McDonald’s for a fast food sandwich (always on a hamburger bun for me).

Then I went through a very odd phase where I ate bacon and a baked potato most nights for dinner.  Definitely not the healthiest time in my life.  Luckily it didn’t last long.

Now bacon isn’t among my favorite foods.  I enjoy it every now and then, typically not more than a couple times a year.  But when I saw this Sunday Supper’s theme of bacon, I knew I wanted to participate with a sweet and savory combo.

Peanut butter is one of those foods I crave and I thought it would pair really well with bacon.  I cooked up a pound of artisan bacon, though now I cook it in the oven instead of the microwave.  Mom and Dad ate most of it, but a fair portion was reserved for these cookies.  I also saved the bacon fat and roasted some sweet potato fries in it.  Best.  Decision.  Ever.

Back to the cookies though.  They are my all-time favorite, super peanut buttery, peanut butter lovers’ cookies.  These are naturally gluten free and have so much more peanut butter flavor than any other cookies out there.  Plus, they are a breeze to make.  No big mixers.  No chilling the dough.  Just cookies asap.

I amp up that peanut butter flavor with Reese’s Pieces.  And then there’s the bacon.  The bacon flavor permeates the entire cookie.  The crispy pieces are a great contrast to the super soft, slightly underbaked cookies.  Oh, and then the melty Reese’s Pieces take the cookies totally over the top.

I definitely recommend these hot from the oven or reheated in the microwave.  A mound of marshmallows on top is a great choice too.

I definitely see more bacon in my future, even if it’s just in these cookies.
