…or at least that is what all the people of France used to say. So one day Aly decided to experiment and added them to her cookies! Everyone in the kingdom was happy with the result except for the royal family’s pet pig. He was so upset he refused to talk to the princess for an entire year! She finally won him over when she promised to name the cookie after him. Meet the Piglet.
(Box from Michaels – Martha Stewart collection. Is there anything that woman can’t do?)
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter (softened)
1 and 1/4 brown sugar
1/4 white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 egg + 1 egg yolk (room temperature)
1 cup milk-chocolate chips
6 slices of bacon
2/3 cup toffee bits
1. Sift flour with baking soda and salt and set aside.
2. Prep the bacon. Four slices are for the cookie batter, and two are for garnishing on top before baking. Cook the bacon on a pan, then chop into small pieces.
3. Blend butter with sugar until creamy. Then add eggs and vanilla. Slowly add the flour mixture and then add chocolate chips, bacon bits (roughly 4 slices worth), and toffee bits.
4. Refrigerate dough for 1-2 hours.
5. When you’re ready to bake, line your cookie sheet with parchment paper. Preheat the oven at 325 degrees. Add the bacon garnishing and bake for 14-16 minutes (until edges are golden brown). Cool on the sheet for 1-2 minutes then move to cooling rack.
