Bacon Snickerdoodle Recipe

These cookies are crunchy on the sides and chewy in the middle, and a great way to use up leftover bacon grease. A few little cracklin’s just add to the charm.

1 cup of sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla

  1. Just tried this. I’m an experienced baker. I’m sorry to say this recipe is a fail in both standard and true convection ovens. It did not melt down to a cookie but stayed the same shape as the small cookie scoop I used.
