I’ve known Michelle for quite a while. Since we live fairly close, she’s one of the first bloggers I met in real life. I have had fun watching her little family grow…especially because she’s running a home full of boys just like me!
I don’t know what dinner is like over at Michelle’s house, but in our house things can get a little bit crazy. Every once in a while I throw up my arms and we either settle on having pizza delivered or breakfast for dinner.
Truth be told, I am actually a huge fan of breakfast for dinner. Breakfast foods are my favorite. The other day while dreaming of ways to incorporate more breakfast food into my life, I decided to come up with a breakfast cookie and maple bacon cookies were born…
These maple bacon cookies consist of a nice soft cake cookie, topped with a thin maple glaze and crumbled bacon. It’s like a full breakfast in every bite!
In addition to the delicious taste, these little bites of yum are super-easy to make.
1 yellow cake mix
1/4 c. softened butter
3 c. confectioners sugar
1/4 tsp. maple extract
1/2 c. milk
Prepare crunchy bacon bits (I used three large strips of bacon cut down into small pieces).
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together cake mix, 2 eggs, 1/4 softened butter. Roll dough into one inch balls and place on cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
While cookies are baking in the oven, mix confectioners sugar, maple extract and milk until sugar has dissolved.
Drizzle maple glaze over cookies and top with crumbled bacon.
Your mouth will thank you…
If you liked this cookie recipe, you may want to try my Almond Joy cookie recipe…It’s a family favorite.
Hands down my favorite cookie recipe is still my easy gingerbread – it’s been pinned over 100,000 times!
Thanks for letting me participate in your fun fall series Michelle!
