Bacon Walnut Butter Ball Cookies

Day 17! One week, just ONE WEEK until Christmas! Today I’m featuring bacon. Who doesn’t like bacon, right? Unfortunately the best picture I got of these cookies completely disappeared from my hard drive while I was editing it. It was already erased from my camera card, too. Sigh! These cookies kind of taste like you’re eating walnut pancakes with bacon all rolled into one!

    These are definitely different. But I have seen many recipes with bacon in recipes or bacon on them and I hear they are pretty good. would like to try these out

  3. Bacon definitely makes everything taste better! I love bacon brownies and chocolate chip cookies. Will have to give this one a try!

  4. My husband would LOVE bacon in cookies. Great idea! We’re off of sugar and grains, so I would definitely have to make some substitutes but a bacon/walnut base might be a good start!
