  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • egg
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped cooked bacon
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar


  • Stir flour with baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside. Add 1/2 cup finely chopped cooked bacon to flour mixture.
  • Beat butter with sugar in a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium-high, until fluffy. Beat in egg. Gradually beat in flour mixture, just until combined. Gather into a ball. Divide dough in half, then roll each portion into a 2-in.-wide log. Wrap logs in wax paper and twist ends. Chill until firm, 1 to 1 1/2 hours
  • Position racks in top and bottom thirds of oven. Preheat to 350F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment.
  • Slice cookies into 1/4-inch rounds and arrange 1 inch apart on prepared sheets. Bake in top and bottom thirds of oven, switching halfway through, until cookies are golden, 10 to 12 min. Let cookies cool on sheets for 1 min, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough. Bake and cool cookies. Whisk 3 tbsp maple syrup with 1/4 cup icing sugar until smooth. Spoon into a zip-top freezer bag. Snip off 2 mm from a corner of bag. Drizzle icing over cookies. Cookies will keep well, stored in an airtight container at room temperature, up to 5 days.


Let icing dry after brushing or drizzling over cookies, about 1 hour.

  1. There is no flavouring in the batter–I guess vanilla does not go with bacon?? Hope they are of good flavour when baked.
