Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Make sure you have some peanut butter. About a cup. Chunky or smooth – doesn’t matter.
Fry up about 6-7 pieces of bacon until crisp, then dice it up.
Mix 1/2 cup of white and a 1/2 cup of brown sugar with the peanut butter until combined. Add an egg and a teaspoon of baking soda. Fold in the bacon.
No questions. Just do it.
Roll into balls and place on a baking sheet. (I put parchment paper down first, but that’s just me.) Use a fork to make a criss-cross pattern in the cookie. Or don’t. It’s not important right now.
Bake for 10 minutes. Take out of the oven and cool on baking sheet.
Then enjoy the most delicious, hot affair between peanut butter and bacon ever imagined.
