Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies sound strange at first, and people give me strange looks when I tell them there is bacon in the cookies, but trust me they are great.  Even if you do not particularly like dark chocolate, use it
anytime you want to combine chocolate and bacon, trust me on this one.

Makes 2 doz cookies
Ingredients: 1/2 c butter               1 tsp vanilla extract
            1/2 c sugar                1 1/8 c flour
            1 egg                      1/4 tsp salt
            1/2 tsp baking soda        8 oz dark chocolate chips
            1/2 lb bacon, crispy          1/2 c brown sugar

Melt butter in a small pan.  While it is hot add both sugars.  Stir, then let cool a bit.  If it's too hot it will melt the chocolate, but you don't want it to cool so much it turns solid again.
Mix the flour, soda, and salt in a mixing bowl.  In a small bowl lightly beat the egg and add vanilla.  Then add to the butter mixture.  Stir well then add to the flour mixture.  Stir well then add the chips and chopped bacon.  You may want to add more chips or more bacon depending on how you like it.  I like less chips and more bacon.  Put into the refriderator for about an hour. When ready, preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  I use a small cookie scoop to put small balls on my parchment paper covered cookie sheet.  Bake for 7-12 minutes depending on your oven.  Take the cookies off the cookie sheet and cool completely, or eat warm. :)  Either way, Enjoy!
