Isn’t it strange how a brief thought about pancakes can become a true craving at the oddest hour? Late-Night Craving satisfies with both texture and flavor: pancakes and maple syrup with a chaser of bacon. You never know when the urge will strike, so freezing some scoops of cookie dough for baking anytime is a forward-thinking thing to do.
Prep: 8 large or 12 medium slices of bacon; cooked, drained, and cooled.
½ cup unsalted butter, softened
¾ cup sugar
1 large egg
1 Tablespoon pure maple syrup
½ cup buttermilk
1¾ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
8-12 pieces of cooked bacon
Cream butter and sugar.
Mix in egg, maple syrup, and buttermilk.
Stir together and mix into above.
Crumble bacon and fold into the dough.
Scoop or drop rounded Tablespoon size cookies 2″ apart on a parchment lined or nonstick baking sheet.
Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes, or until bottoms are pancake gold.
Let sit for a couple of minutes and transfer to a cooling rack.
