Good morning, dear friends!
Tell you the truth ….. I will be so glad when June is over ….. maybe then I can sit down for few minutes & take a deep breath!
I have been so busy that I even missed the deadline for SECRET RECIPE SWAP & believe me I feel awful!!!
My secret partner for this month was Jennifer from JEN’S JOURNEY.
I loved browsing through Jen’s blog …. she has little bit of everything ….. she writes about family life ….. homeschooling …. relationships ….. travel & of course she has lot of delicious recipes.
Since my boys love BACON I decided to make turn Jen’s Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies into GIANT BACON CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE to celebrate end of school year.
Jen used cookie mix & since I didn’t have any I had to make my GIANT BACON CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE from scratch.
GIANT BACON CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE
This recipe is adopted from Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies @ Jen”s Journey
- 1/2 cup Butter (softened)
- 1/2 cup Sugar
- 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
- 1 Eggs
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 1,5 cup Flour
- 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
- 1,5 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
- 8 Strips of Bacon (crispy & chopped)
STEP 1: Preheat oven to 375F. Line large pizza pan with parchment paper. In the middle draw 9″ circle using food marker.
STEP 2: Cream together butter and sugars until light & fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla.
STEP 3: In another bowl whisk together flour and baking soda. Add to butter mixture and gently blend in.
STEP 4: Gently blend in 1 cup of chocolate chips and 3/4 of the bacon.
STEP 5: Place cookie dough in the middle of the circle. Using hands spread it around evenly to make nice 9″ cookie.
STEP 6: Top the cookie with leftover chocolate chips and bacon. Bake for 15-20 minutes. When the cookie is finish you will have about 1″ crust/ring around it and the middle will look soft, but it will harden when you take it out.
STEP 7: Take out the cookie. Let it rest on the pizza pan for 5 minutes before moving it onto cooling rack.
Thank you Jen for the inspiration behind this awesome & delicious GIANT BACON CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE.
It was a huge hit in my house. My boys couldn’t wait to sink their teeth into it ….. then my starving college student daughter dropped by with her boyfriend and between the four of them I was lucky to get a taste of the GIANT BACON CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE.
