pig-out cookies...


MAKES 12
  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line a baking sheet (or 2) with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, chile powder and salt.
  3. With a stand mixer, beat the butter and reserved bacon fat drippings on medium-high until smooth, about 1 minute. Beat in the white and brown sugar until creamy, about 4 minutes. Then add the egg and vanilla and beat until fluffy for about 2 minutes.
  4. Reduce the speed of the mixer to low and add the flour. Mix until just combined and then add in the chocolate chips and crispy bacon.
  5. Form the cookie dough into 12 even-sized balls and arrange them on the cookie sheet about 2 inches apart from each other. Flatten the cookie balls with your fingers and then bake for 12-14 minutes until golden brown. Let the cookies cool for about 2 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack
