Bacon Snickerdoodle Recipe

These cookies are crunchy on the sides and chewy in the middle, and a great way to use up leftover bacon grease. A few little cracklin’s just add to the charm.

1/4 cup of cold bacon grease
1/4 cup of unsalted butter (room temp)
1 cup of sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups of flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 Tbs milk
1/4 cup of sugar + 1 TBS Cinnamon for rolling

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cream butter, bacon fat and sugar.  Add egg and vanilla. stir in flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until just combined then add milk and mix another 5-10 seconds. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

Combine sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Scoop dough out using a cookie scoop then roll the dough in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Best eaten warm.
