Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Candied Bacon

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
4 slices cinnamon-sugared candied bacon (you can also use regular bacon for an easier and less sweet version)
1/2 cup chocolate chips, melted

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Dip candied bacon slices in melted chocolate and let come to room temperature while preparing the dough. If needed, stick them in the fridge for a few minutes.
Cream butter, peanut butter and sugars together in the bowl of an electric mixer until fluffy – about 3-4 minutes.
Add egg and vanilla, mixing until combined.
Add flour, baking soda and salt, mixing until just combined and dough forms.
Crumble bacon and fold it into dough.
Drop tablespoon-sized dough balls on a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.
