My semi-famous bacon shortbread. This batch doesn't contain any pecans, they are all bacon, all the time.


Bacon Shortbread

oven @ 350 degrees F

x 1/2 (yield about 100 US half-doller coin sized rounds)

Unsalted butter - 1 1/2 sticks
Cooled, solidified bacon fat* (save it from cooking the bacon) - 4 tbsp
Brown Sugar - 1/2 cup + 8 tsp
Vanilla - 1/2 tsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp

Flour - 2 cups
Pecans, toasted - 1/2 cup chopped
Crispy cooked bacon* - enough to make 1/2 cup finely chopped (roughly 1/2 lb)


- Cook the bacon* until it is crispy, drain and cool on paper towels,
chop into tiny pieces
- Save and cool the bacon fat (cook more bacon and eat it if you don't
think there will be 4 tbsp)

- Cream together room temperature** bacon fat (not liquidy!), butter, brown
sugar, vanilla and salt until light and fluffy
- Add flour, pecans and bacon, mixing until all the flour is incorporated and everything is moist.

- Shape into two logs on/in plastic wrap
- Refrigerate until completely cooled (freezes well!)

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
- Slice 1/4" thick
- Place on a parchment lined baking sheet, they don't have to be too
far apart as they don't spread out much
- Bake until centers feel almost firm when poked (check after 8
minutes, they will need a little more time) and just barely turning golden brown on the edges


*I find that baking the bacon on an unlined sheet pan at 350 degrees F produces a much more consistent crispness in each piece, and renders a cleaner, clearer fat.

**If the bacon fat is too cold when you start creaming, it will stay in lumps longer than everything else and need to be worked out. If it's too liquid, it won't get fluffy enough.

Like buttah...

...perhaps because the recipe calls for two sticks.

Hahaha, I feel a little like Paula Deen when I make these.

These were the first batch I ever made. I had a serious craving for shortbread and I decided to try to bake some cookies. They were delicious (of course), but I'm still fiddling a little bit with the recipe.
