Decadent bacon chocolate chip cookies from a famous butcher: Try the recipe

In honor of National Homemade Cookies Day, here’s a spin on classic chocolate chip cookies that are sure to get two thumbs up.

“The bacon chocolate chip cookie recipe is one of the best twists on a classic recipe, adding salty to sweet,” says Jesse Denes, VP at Schaller & Weber, a German butcher established on New York City’s Upper East Side in 1937.

 Denese is a fan of using the company’s double smoked uncured bacon in the recipe, since it’s fully cooked and sold in slabs. 

“It takes no extra cooking and allows you to cut pieces to a size of your liking that will hold up during the baking process,” Denes added. 

Whatever kind of bacon you use, be sure you’ve got enough to double the recipe — yes, these are that good.
