I may be a touch giddy today. It’s 10:55 am on a Thursday and I’m writing this post in my pj’s, gazing into my living room where the tree is a twinkling, the fire is a blazing, the dog is a napping, the coffee is a brewing, and the rain is a pouring down. And I’m about to make Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies Topped with Sea Salt. Can you see me smiling out loud?
Remember Kitchen Tip #11 ~ Store Bacon in the Freezer. This is exactly why. What if I had discovered this recipe from Knead to Cook and didn’t happen to have bacon on hand? A tragedy, plain and simple.
We left these cookies cooling on the counter, while we set out on an adventure. When we arrived home we had a new family member. Meet Scrappy Thyme.
