Smoked Brown Sugar Cookies (aka Bacon Cookies)

These cookies feature our Smoked Brown Sugar and they are addictive! Mildly reminiscent of a s’more but also a sugar cookie laced with toffee – we think they are a hit. Some think the smoky flavor adds just a hint of bacon – what could be better bacon in a cookie?? It is a complex flavor that always pleases.

We use these as samples at our farmers markets locally and while most people have heard of a sugar cookie – most have NOT heard of a brown sugar cookie – much less a smoked brown sugar cookie.

Oh Yea – they are also super simple to make too. If you have two large cookie sheets you can put a dozen on each and be done baking in about 15 minutes! (A double batch makes scads of cookies for a crowd too.)

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Servings 24 Cookies

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter – room temperature
  • ¾ cup Signature Smoked Brown Sugar
  • ½ cup regular brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Mix together flour, baking soda, and salt and set aside.
  • With an electric mixer, beat together butter and both sugars for 5 minutes.
  • To the sugar and butter mixture, add in the egg and vanilla. Mix for one additional minute.
  • Mix in the flour mixture until uniformly combined.
  • Use a spoon or cookie scoop to shape small balls about 2 tablespoons each. Arrange 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheet (do not press down or shape the cookies).
  • Bake 8 minutes, or until the edges are just slightly gold. To preserve the chewy yumminess of this cookie do not bake too long (if you think they look just a bit under-done in the middle – then they are just right)!
  • Let cool on pan 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

Notes

These cookies might become slightly crisp initially, but will become soft and chewy once again if stored in an airtight container. These cookies are amazing dipped in a hot cup of coffee!
