I may be a great cook, but I am a notoriously bad baker. I have reached a point that I bake for the holidays and that is about it (and those tried and true family recipes only go right for me about half the time). However, Harper loves to bake and I have been trying out new recipes, both for the blog and as a fun thing to do in the kitchen with her, plus who doesn’t love having something sweet around? After consulting with our pantry and my assistant baker, Harper, we decided to add bacon, toffee, and pecans to our cookies. And, so, our AMAZING Bacon Toffee Pecan Cookies were created!

It should come as no surprise we used bacon in our cookies, but that salty-bacon-y goodness works great in sweet dishes too. I have always been a sucker for toffee and pecans. This recipe is now a family favorite, sometimes I substitute chocolate chips for the toffee, and every once in a blue moon I go nuts and just add the chocolate chips in too, for the ultimate cookie experience. Whether you go with our Original Bacon Toffee Pecan Cookies or you add a little chocolate or something else you love into the mix this recipe is bound to be a winner!

    I can’t get over how many recipes include bacon. You’ve opened an entirely new way of considering the use of bacon. Thank you again for another recipe I can try!
