    Jan, I would look at the freshness of your ingredients and try again. Basically chocolate chip cookies with the addition of bacon, which wouldn’t cause the cookie to flatten out. I hope you give these another whirl. oxo

    Oven heat is 375°F, isn’t it?

    I’m going to try this recipe. I’ll tell you after but they seem yummy!

    Jan, was your baking powder too old? I have had cookies fail epically because I used clapped out baking powder. Write the date you opened the tin on the tin, and discard after a year. Your cookies should be fine. Or you may have, as Robin suggests, over softened your butter. But check the age of your baking powder too!

    Baking powder being too old definitely can cause this issue.

    These came out great-but I tweaked it a little by adding about half a cup of flour and two tablespoons of the bacon fat (solid form). I then rolled them into balls, sprinkled finely crushed bacon on top and then basted them with a small amount of maple syrup. The maple syrup candied under the oven heat creating a nice crunch to the cookie!

    Why all the comments about baking powder, since the recipe calls for baking soda?
