Ingredients

3/4 cup butter
1/2 cup rendered bacon fat
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 1/4 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup cooked, diced bacon lardons
Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Cut ½ lb. bacon into lardons and cook on low heat until golden brown, approximately 10-15 minutes.
  • Set aside ¼ c. rendered bacon fat and place in freezer to solidify, approximately 30 minutes.
