Two ingredients that just speak to Canadians are maple syrup and bacon!

After hearing about so many sweet goodies made with bacon, and being a lover of that sweet and salty combination I decided to try adding bacon to a simple maple cookie recipe.  I was so lucky to be gifted two bottles of pure maple syrup recently and was happy to put it to good use!

The crispy bacon adds a nice texture and bit of a crunch to this otherwise soft, chewy cookie

This recipe makes a huge batch.  I had enough to send to work with Tim, and some left over to take to our Bible study group.

Even put a few aside for my sister…..who always stops by after all the baking has left the house!

This will make a nice addition to our Canada Day barbecue, not to mention a summer picnic or potluck.  This is sturdy cookie that pack well without crumbling or falling apart if packed with a bit of care.
