Today is Homemade Cookies Day! As out-there as these sound, they are actually kind of understated. You think I’m lying, I can tell, but they really are. Yes, the fact that there are crispy, chewy bits of Bacon running throughout these little cookies is unmistakable. But it doesn’t clobber you over the head. The Bacon bits are in direct proportion to plenty of big chunks of pecans and a sprinkle of maple sugar on the top that balances out the saltiness.
Also, if it's possible, these cookies are better the next day. The flavors meld and intensify and they stay perfectly nice and chewy on the inside, crispy around the edges if you keep them in an airtight container.
