Bacon Cookies - Part the First: Fry one pound of bacon
until the bacon is crisp. Remove the bacon and crumble until it
is small chunks (1/4" in squares or less). Set aside. Pour
the grease into a mixing dish and allow to cool to room temperature.
Look at the amount of grease and add about the same amount of
sugar. Then add 2 or 3 times as much flour. Add a tablespoon or
so of baking powder. Add a little salt, and then stir. As the
batter comes together add about 1/4 - 1/2 cup of water until you
get a thin dough.
Add flour back until the dough gets to the ball stage, then add
a little more, turn it onto a board, and knead by hand for 2 or
Alternately you may use a sugar cookie recipe that uses two
sticks of butter, using bacon grease instead of the butter.
Bacon Cookies - Part the Second: Add the bacon crumbles
to the dough. Roll into sheets that fit a cookie pan, and lay
the whole sheet on the pan. Score with a pizza cutter into 1"
squares, but don't cut through. Bake in a hot (375 to 400) oven
until the sheets are nicely browned. Remove, let cool, and break
along the scores.
Bacon Cookies - Part the Last: Because of the meat, I
store these in the refrigerator and/or freezer. Dogs love em.
If desired you may leave out the bacon crumbles and withhold
PlagueRat: Bacon Cookies are for DOGS....You got dogs? You get
tired of paying a lot of money for treats? Then make BACON COOKIES.
A pound of bacon costs about $2.50, and it makes about 4 pounds
of treats... I make so many that I have to freeze 'em.
While intended for dogs, many people find bacon cookies oddly
