Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 c (2 sticks) butter
  • 1 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon plain greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1/2 - 1 cup bacon
  • Coarse sea salt for sprinkling

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and set aside.
  3. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
  4. The butter will begin to foam.
  5. Make sure you whisk consistently during this process.
  6. After a couple of minutes, the butter will begin to brown on the bottom of the saucepan.
  7. Continue to whisk and remove from heat as soon as the butter begins to brown and give off a nutty aroma.
  8. Immediately transfer the butter to a glass bowl to prevent burning.
  9. Set aside to cool for a few minutes.
  10. With an electric mixer, mix the butter and sugars until thoroughly blended.
  11. Beat in the egg, yolk, vanilla, and yogurt until combined.
  12. Add the dry ingredients slowly and beat on low-speed just until combined.
  13. Gently fold in all of the chocolate and peanut butter chips and bacon.
  14. Chill your dough for 2 hours in the refrigerator. (DO NOT skip this step!)
  15. Once dough is chilled measure about 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough and roll into a ball.
  16. Place dough balls on cookie sheet, 2 inches apart and flatten with your hand VERY gently.
  17. Bake the cookies 9-11 minutes or until the edges of the cookies begin to turn golden brown.
  18. Sprinkle with sea salt and let cool.
