Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies

I tried a most unusual cookie recipe: peanut butter bacon cookies. Apparently the creator of this recipe heard about a friend's grandfather who made peanut butter bacon sandwiches. The recipe was easy to do and only requires 5 ingredients. The taste is . . . incredible. It's like peanut butter cookies with an extra zing. You could easily exchange turkey bacon if you are watching calories. I do highly recommend dipping the cookie balls in sugar before marking them with the fork tines. It is less sticky. The other really great thing about this recipe is it only makes 15 cookies, so you are less likely to gain 20 pounds eating them since there are less.

At first, I wasn't sure about the taste. Later on the next day, I found myself thinking about the taste of these cookies and salivating. I like the zaniness of them. God puts unusual combinations together and makes beautiful things with them.

Here is a link to the original recipe from the Joy the Baker Blog. It looks like she has a lot of other great ideas. Featured right now is zucchini pancakes.
