2799. BACON SHORTBREAD COOKIES

½ cup salted butter, softened
¼ cup powdered sugar
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
dash of coarse sea salt
¼ cup crumbled bacon
1 cup all purpose flour
3 oz. dark chocolate, melted

In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter until creamy. Add the powdered sugar and beat until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add in the vanilla extract and mix until combined.

Turn off the mixer and scrape down the sides. Add the salt, bacon, and flour. Mix on low speed until combined. The dough may appear crumbly. Turn the dough out onto a piece of plastic wrap. Press together into a disc and wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Place the dough between 2 pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper and roll out to a ¼ inch thickness. Remove the plastic wrap and cut out cookies into desired shapes. Place the cut outs on trays and place the trays into the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes to let the cookies firm up.

Place the cookies into the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes or until firm and lightly browned. Move the cookies to wire racks and cool completely.

Once the cookies are cooled, dip them into the melted chocolate. Move to waxed paper lined baking trays and place in the refrigerator to harden. Move the cookies to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

makes 3 dozen cookies

3 tablespoons bourbon
3/4 pound bacon, 1/4-inch dice
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Bacon Puff Cookie Stars: Cookies for Kids Cancer

oxo bacon cookies cutters-9

When OXO offered some kitchen cookie freebies, the literal first thought I had was, “Can I make bacon cookies?” Kids love cookies. It’s perfect logic in a crispy bacon brain. So that, on top of the charity bonus, made it a great big yes to another OXO post. In addition to giving 10 cents from select items sold to the Cookies for Kids’ Cancer cause, OXO is donating $100  for each blog post dedicated to the cause in September. OXO Good Cookies will be donating up to $100,000 to the cause, so we’re hoping to make them shell out in the name of awesome causes everywhere!

Please note, we were not paid for this post, but continue to want to be drunken BFFs with OXO in the same way you do with that nice person who’s always introducing you to new drinks and buying the more than enough rounds of shots. You know that guy in the bar who just wants to be liked, and loves to be nice to everyone. We all know that guy. OXO is just introducing us to new kitchen gadgets and charities. But not shots. Yet?

We got a mess of goodies to try out in the name of Cookies for Kid’s Cancer. The spatula made me feel like a silicone goddess. No really. I’ve never had a fancy spatula before and it was more fun to toss bacon cookies around on it than your typical cookie.

The never lose the 1/8 spoon cause they’re all magically tied together set of measuring cups is handy to the max. The best thing about this is actually that you can use additional support to gently tap and cover the pastry with cinnamon.

The key to these bacon cookies where two things. The stainless steel cookie cutters – and really thick bacon. I mean wide like my butt on Thanksgiving. To make sure your cookies are perfect, you can even measure your bacon to make sure if fits the cookie cutter, but you can also overlap bacon slices in the cutter. Once baked, it’ll all go beautifully together.

I can’t wait to try out the cutters on other non-cookie items. The holidays are going to look adorable guys. (Please note, the hearts were hard to overlap due to shape, but still pretty awesome.)oxo bacon cookies cutters-6
