  • 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

  • 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!

  • 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!
