I realized that we didn't have any birthday cake on Saturday, so I decided to make bacon-chocolate-chip cookies.|
I used a Cook's Illustrated recipe, which is somewhat involved, but worth it overall I think. I would make two changes: The cookies were great last night, but more crunchy than chewy today. I think this is because I made small cookies instead of big ones, so next time I'll bake them a minute or so less. Also, the bacon wasn't as prominent as I'd like; I think it works better on the outside, so next time I'll roll the dough balls in bacon crumbles rather than mixing them into the dough.
You can make good crispy bacon in the microwave (and it stays nice and flat), but it takes a long time (especially with a wimpy microwave like ours), and it uses up about a half a roll of paper towels...
