    Nothing goes together like peanut butter and chocolate… add in some bacon, and these cookies are top of the list!

    1/2 cup (125 mL) unsalted butter, at room temperature;
    1/2 cup (125 mL) peanut butter
    1/2 cup (125 mL) granulated sugar
    1/2 cup (125 mL) dark brown sugar
    1/2 tsp (2 mL) vanilla extract
    1 large egg
    1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 tsp (2 mL) table salt
    1 cup chocolate chips
    4-6 strips bacon, fried and crumbled

    Pre-heat oven to 375ºF
    Cream butter, peanut butter, sugars, vanilla and egg until fluffy and light colour, about 2 minutes.
    In another bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder. Stir flour mix into peanut butter mixture. Stir in chocolate chips.
    Using a tablespoon, scoop dough into hands and roll into a ball. Then place onto an ungreased baking sheet and place about 2" (5 cm) apart. Squish with a fork. Sprinkle bacon over top of each cookie and squish again.
    Bake to desired doneness,about 8 to 10 minutes. Cool 5 minutes in pan. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
    Makes about 30.
