Once butter is softened, mix with shortening and sugars.  Add extracts.  Beat eggs, add, and mix.

Add baking soda and salt.  Add flour one cup at a time and mix.  Stir in chocolate chips, chopped bacon, and bacon grease.

Note: To make the “Karjanis Family Secret Recipe” Scene Cookies (a.k.a. my regular chocolate chip cookies), use 1 tsp vanilla extract and leave out the maple extract, maple syrup, bacon drippings, and bacon.  Bake at 375 for 7-8 minutes.)

    1. Just a little bit, not overwhelming!  I found that the bacon fat and added extract increased the cooking time from the regular version.

  1. Those look amazing! My boyfriend saw what I was reading and asked when I plan on making those for him haha!
