Bacon Breakfast Cookies

I tried these bacon cookies when I was a 4-H leader. Chock-full of bacon, cornflakes and raisins, they're a handy breakfast on the go. —Louise Gangwish, Shelton, Nebraska

    This is the second bacon cookie recipe I've tried, and both times, the guys love 'em and the girls think they're disgusting. Personally, I just don't think bacon or bacon grease belong in cookies.

    These are pretty yummy. They were a little sweeter than I anticipated. I followed the suggestion to use applesauce (and they are soft), and I used dried cranberries instead of raisins. I told my bf about these, and he said, "It's not breakfast unless it has eggs and bacon!" I told him this has both!

    Better than I expected, however, I don't see the need to refrigerate. Probably because of the bacon but think that is nonsense, and it would certainly ruin the crunchiness.

    These started disappearing as soon as they came out of the oven, even without the bacon which I didn't have on hand at the time. Used a tad bit more flour to absorb the extra moisture from the margarine (also didn't have real butter on hand either!) and they came out fairly chewy. Baked up perfectly at 15 minutes. My only problem was removing them from the cookie sheet as they stuck like the dickens! Next time I'll use parchment paper and try it with the bacon. The cornflakes gave them a great crunch. Saved to my recipe box.

    Very good, but too crunchy, so 2nd time I used 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce instead of the 1/2 cup of butter. Makes them much softer. Very good. Will deffently try again.

    very good! made them for a breakfast potluck and got good reviews from everyone! I think i'd try the cranberries for a change, or other dried fruits and raisins. I only wish that they had been softer, and not so crunchy.

    Oh my goodness, these cookies are outrageously delicious. As I'm not a raisin fan I used dry sweetened cranberries instead. Awesome!!!!
