Bacon Cookies with Guinness – hearty and sweet!

Bacon Cookies with Guinness sounds a little strange, but they are absolutely delicious.

Today follows the promised recipe for Bacon Cookies with Guinness, after the peanut butter cookies yesterday. At first it sounds pretty weird at once to make in a cookie Bacon. But Bacon goes very well together with the sugar and therefore there is the Bacon today in cookies. The whole is rounded off with some beer and chocolate and finished are great cookies.

With caramelize the Bacon there is a step more in the recipe which already takes some time to complete. But it is worth it!

Of course, all is not for vegans or vegetarians, Sorry. 😉

Bacon Cookies with Guinness - hearty and sweet!

Bacon and beer combined is not unusual, but not in a cookie.
