Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies Topped with Sea Salt

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?

December 20th A Giddy Day

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.
