>Love = Bacon Peanut Butter Banana Cookies
April 7, 2009 § Leave a comment
Inspired by Vanessa’s Bacon Peanut Butter Cookies, I decided to test my hand at it. Tonight is Joe and my official-ish two-year anniversary– April 7, 2007 was our first date– and I wanted to surprise him with something delicious. I combined the best of two Peanut Butter Bacon Cookie recipes: using the peanuts from one recipe and the fresh bananas from another. I cooked six strips of bacon in a frying pan and then diced them. The results are sickeningly delicious. After allowing myself one cookie, I craved a salad to make up for the decadence. I have a feeling any old peanut butter cookie recipe can be used, but the banana and chopped peanuts that I added really enhanced the bacon. I’m not sure I could replicate the recipe, but as Judy said on her blog, “Go with your gut –not your head — on this one; the combination of peanut butter, bacon and bananas really is delicious.” Joseph will be arriving very late in Queens from teaching in New Jersey. Hopefully he will be hungry for something unusual.
