Just a tempting tasty :-)

Something to try out for your spring pot-luck! I'll be bringing these to the Missoula Community Chorus dinner next week.....

Chocolate Chip, Cherry & Bacon Cookies

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup dried tart cherries
1/2 cup finely chopped smoked bacon, cooked and well drained (I use pre-cooked bacon from Costco...)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line sheet pans with parchment paper. Sift flour and baking soda into a small bowl; set aside. In your electric mixer, combine the sugars and butter until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla extract, stirring to combine. Add the eggs and mix thoroughly.

Stir in the flour. Add the chocolate chips, cherries and bacon. Place heaping tablespoons of the cookie dough on the parchment-lined pans. Leave about 2 inches between each cookie. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown and fragrant. Remove from oven and (after burning your mouth taste testing) allow to cool for about 10 minutes before transferring to cooling racks.

Makes about 36 cookies.
