I never really set out to make revolutionary cookies. Really. I just make what I like, pretty or not.
I had a craving for my favorite maple syrup after attending a brunch hosted by the Maple Man himself, Tim Burton. 5 courses, including specialty cocktails all made featuring his maple syrup as the main ingredient. It was inspiring.
That night I came home and put together one of the easiest and most flavorful cookies I have made in a long time. I also whipped up a nice maple glaze for these. It may surprise you to know that I actually prefer these without the glaze, but the rest of the family liked the glaze. I just wanted the cookie in its simple state.
The procedure for this recipe is simple. There is the extra step of baking the bacon, but really-it’s worth it. Stove top cooking of the bacon is just not good enough here;)
I used an uncured, thick-cut real bacon and real Indiana Maple Syrup for this. You can use what you want, but I cannot guarantee they will be as fantastic as these!
