In Making News
I wish they were a little more bacon-y. As you can see I broke the bacon up into chocolate-chip sized pieces. Some of them broke down even more when they were incorporated into the batter. I think they should be bigger so I'll use larger pieces next time (whenever that is - I don't usually buy bacon)
Also I'll try to use some solidified bacon fat in place of some butter for more bacon flavor. I'm not positive more bacon pieces is the way to go. When you eat the cookie the bacon breaks down more slowly than the rest of the cookie and you can be left with, well, meat dregs in your mouth. Kind of like the coconut when you eat a Mounds bar. It's not a huge problem but I'm not sure I like that.
Whenever I use the oven Fay has to be banished to jail.
This is because she has a life-long hatred of ovens and will attack them if she knows they're in use. Don't ask me why - I don't know of anything an oven ever did to her. Except once she was able to bite an in-use oven and she got burned on her lip. She was so busy beating up the oven though that she didn't notice until afterwards. I'm sure she had no idea why her lip hurt. So you see, it's jail for her. She protests.
Poor thing - the whole house has smelled like bacon all day.
