Bacon and Butterscotch Cookies

The flavor of these tender butterscotch cookies is enhanced with salty, smoky chopped bacon. The combo is addictive and you won't be able to eat just one.

  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped bacon
  • 1 bag (12 ounces) butterscotch chips


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the sugars and the butter.
  • Add vanilla and eggs and mix until just combined.
  • Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • With the mixer on low, add in bacon and butterscotch chips. Mix just until ingredients are mixed uniformly throughout the dough.
  • Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls, about two inches apart, onto a prepared cookie sheet.
  • Bake approximately 8-10 minutes or until edges look done, but centers are still soft. Allow cookies to cool on the cookie sheet about 2 minutes before removing to a wire rack to continue cooling.
