SERVES 10-12 cookies PREP 30 min COOK 10-12 min READY IN 45 min
- 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
- 1 lb thick cut bacon, pre-cooked & chopped
- *You'll also need wood grilling planks. Before grilling, soak the planks for 4-24 hours.
- Begin by blending the flour, baking soda and salt. Whisk thoroughly to evenly blend. Set this bowl aside.
- In a separate mixing bowl, combine the granulated sugar, dark brown sugar and unsalted butter. Blend this mixture together for a few minutes.
- Once the butter/sugar is creamed, add the eggs one at time along with the vanilla extract. Next, add the dry ingredients slowly, a little bit at a time.
- Continue mixing until all the dry ingredients are thoroughly incorporated. Then, add the semi-sweet & bittersweet chocolate chips. Finally, add the pre-cooked and chopped bacon bits. We used our candied bacon from another recipe. Click here for the recipe.
- Fold the chips and bacon bits into the batter and mix just until everything is well incorporated.
- If you're plank grilling, cover your batter with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator while you set up the grill. You could also proceed to bake these cookies in a conventional oven preheated to 350°F.
- Set up your grill for indirect cooking and preheat heat it to about 350-400°F.
- Take your planks out of the water and shake off any excess water. Place the smooth cooking side down on the grill. Preheat the planks with the hood down for 3-5 minutes.
- Spoon each cookie directly onto the planks, using about 2 tsp to 1 tablespoon per cookie. Do this carefully, as the planks are very hot.
- Place the planks in the center of the grill. After 5-8 minutes, rotate and switch the position of the planks.
- After about 10 minutes, they should almost be ready. We like to place the planks directly over the flame for about 30 seconds or so, to add a little smoke and fire to the flavor.
- At this stage, don't leave your grill unattended. If any flareups occur, just give the planks a quick squirt of water.
- The cookies should be ready at this point, pull them off the grill and allow to cool slightly.
- Serve and enjoy!
