    Ingredients
    • 4 slices bacon, cut into small pieces
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, chilled
    • 1 egg

    • 1 pinch salt
    • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
    • 1 dash ground black pepper
    • 1 egg yolk, beaten
    Directions
    1. Fry bacon pieces in a large skillet over medium heat until crispy. Remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels, and cool completely.
    2. Into a large mixing bowl, place the flour, butter or margarine, egg, salt, and heavy cream. Using the mixer's hook attachment, mix the contents of the bowl together until combined; then transfer the dough to the counter, and quickly mix with your hands. Knead in cooled bacon pieces and pepper.
    3. Roll up the dough into a log, to a diameter of about 1 1/2 inches. Wrap in aluminum foil, and refrigerate for 2 hours, until firm.
    4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Remove foil, cut dough roll into slices, and place slices on greased baking sheet. Brush each slice with beaten egg yolk.
    5. Bake in a preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes, until brown. Remove to a wire rack until cooled completely.

    To make this better, add cheddar!
    Add a cup of shredded cheddar (or other cheese) to the dough!
    Bacon and cheese cookies!


    If you want to sweeten them up a bit, coat them with a hard maple glaze!

    Mmmm they sound very tasty. I imagine that the cheese would be a fantastic addition too! :D

    Don't think we've had a recipe for savoury cookies on here before!
