Bacon Grease Sugar Cookie

Bacon grease sugar cookies?

Yup! Sometimes the best recipes come from just playing in the kitchen when a craving hits. That’s exactly how I figured out that bacon grease makes an amazing sugar cookie!

I make a ton of bacon. At least a pound each week, and I always save the bacon grease in my nifty grease keeper that always sits on my stove ready to capture that liquid gold! If you don’t save your bacon grease, what are you doing with your life? I love this little ceramic container and I would recommend it to anyone who is living the high-fat life.

Soooo, when that bacon grease starts to pile up, you need a good way to use it up to make room for the new stuff. I got to thinking, I wonder if I could use bacon grease in place of butter for baking. Since I have to be dairy free or face a very slow and painful death, I thought maybe this would be a good idea. Turns out, it’s a pretty damned good idea!

These are a little different in terms of texture, but I think they taste just like a real sugar cookie. You might want to grab a cold glass of water or almond milk to have with them. Blake also gave them a rave review! You should definitely give them a try!

Here’s the recipe…let me know what you think.
