Okay, a few weeks ago I saw this:
And I was intrigued.
I couldn’t get it off my mind.
It was like my very own Schrodinger’s Cat. It was probably gross, but what if it was the best thing in the world?
I had to know; and so, I went home from the store with this:
I couldn’t wait, I had to make some cookies to frost! It had to be done! So, welcome to my kitchen as we make maple bacon frosted sugar cookies!
I gathered the ingredients:
Now, I didn’t have any eggs, but that’s okay, you can use oil as a substitute!
I highly suggest you do not get in a hurry and accidentally melt your butter when you are supposed to be softening it. It makes a big difference!
But, when you do accidentally melt your butter when you are suppose to be softening it – don’t let that stop you! Just go with it!
You’ll end up with some funny looking cookies, but hey – YOLO! 🙂
Of course, I do not suggest you be in a rush or distracted when you are taking the cookies out of the oven 😦
Power through it! You can do it!
I closed my eyes, I took a breath…
And it wasn’t bad! It actually tasted like a maple donut! There really wasn’t much, if any, bacon flavor. So, yes, it was good because I LOVE maple; however, I was a bit disappointed because – hey – bacon!
I did put on the bacon bits that came with the icing, because bacon!
It didn’t add much flavor.
So, I do still recommend it, if you love maple flavor; however, don’t buy it expecting a lot of bacon flavor!
