Okay, you guys are going to have to trust me on this one. So good. I mean lets be honest, everybody loves bacon, homemade sugar cookies, and caramel. Am I wrong? So why not combine the three? No worries I did, and let me just say, heaven my mouth! It is the perfect combination of sweet and salty.

Caramel Bacon Bit Sugar Cookies

First off these sugar cookies are so soft and perfect. Add some homemade caramel frosting, and crumbled bacon, and you have the perfect combination. I took these to a family get together and they were gone in seconds.  I mean if fast food joints can put bacon in sundaes and on doughnuts then by golly I can have it on my cookies. Did I mention they were heaven sent? Also, did I mention I have probably packed on 5 lbs. since yesterday because I can’t stop eating them….. I think I better pawn the rest off on the neighbors.

Be sure to share this recipe and comment below what you favorite nontraditional food combination is. Maybe I will whip that into a dessert next. Don’t put it past me, the sky is the limit. Happy baking, and be sure to check back for more great recipes!
