Serves: yields 3 dozen
 
Ingredients
  • 2¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup dark brown sugar
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups chocolate chunks
  • ½ lb Jones Dairy Farm Thick Cut Cherrywood Smoked Bacon, cooked and chopped
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. If desired, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar and vanilla extract until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, running the mixer on medium-low.
  4. Reduce the speed to low and add the flour mixture a little at a time to the stand mixer, until just incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chunks and chopped bacon.
  5. Using a medium cookie scoop, droop the dough in balls onto the prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until golden and cooked through. Remove from the oven and let sit for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
