This year I had a new idea for shortbread and it was to add one of my all time favourite foods, Bacon! When I was a kid I accidentally discovered that adding maple syrup to the pan when cooking Bacon made for a dreamy combination of sweet and savoury and I could not resist using that combo in the Bacon shortbread.
The recipe for this shortbread is a pretty basic shortbread recipe with the addition of the Bacon and swapping out the sugar for maple syrup and of course I needed to add a bit more flour to compensate for the liquid in the syrup. I think that I have found a new favourite shortbread! This maple Bacon shortbread is a fabulous combination of sweet and savoury and they simply melt away in your mouth!
