What's better than a salty-sweet chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich? One with bacon in it of course!
2.25 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup butter, softened.
1/2 cup 100% pure maple syrup*
3/4 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1 cup bacon, cooked and finely chopped plus more for dipping.
maple ice cream
*Whatever brand syrup you use, make sure it is 100% pure maple syrup and not "table syrup" which doesn't have the same flavor and is overly sweet.
Cook your bacon and let it cool while you make the cookies.
Cream together the butter and brown sugar. Add the maple syrup, eggs, and vanilla. Combine. Add remaining dry ingredients and combine until just mixed. Fold in chocolate chips and bacon pieces. Let the dough chill in the fridge for about 20 minutes while you preheat the oven to 375º F.
Drop rounded spoonfuls on a cookie sheet covered with a silpat (or use baking spray). Bake for about 8 minutes. Let cool slightly before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Spread cookie with slightly softened ice cream and top with another cookie. Dip sides into chopped bacon pieces as if they were sprinkles. Place in a single layer on a cookie sheet and freeze solid. You can wrap individually in wax paper or store them in a freezer safe container between layers of wax paper.
