Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip-Bacon Cookies — A Virtual Cookie Swap

by in Holidays, Recipes, December 14th, 2011

Bake this batch of cookies and present them in a cast-iron skillet.
The holidays are upon us and here at Food Network, that means cookies, particularly the 12 Days of Cookies.

Yesterday, Gaby Dalkin shared her tips for a successful cookie exchange, but if you’ve never been to a cookie swap, “The concept is pretty simple: Make your favorite kind of cookies, bring them to the party and give them away. In return you get a plethora of cookies from your friends that you get to turn around and take home for your family.”

In honor of these sweet and sometimes savory treats, we’re inviting all of our friends to our Communal Table, an event that we opened up to the entire food community. Today, experts from the industry will share their favorite cookie recipes, as well as cocktails to wash them down with (if you’re age appropriate).

We couldn’t help but bring these Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip-Bacon Cookies from Food Network Magazine to the table. Peanut butter, chocolate chips and bacon — it’s like dying and going to cookie heaven.

Peanut butter makes them extra creamy, while honey-roasted peanuts add just the right amount of crunch. Ancho chile powder and cinnamon bring some zing, plus this touch of spice rounds out the irresistible salty-and-sweet combination.

See what our friends are bringing to the table and tell us what cookie you would bring to the table on Twitter by using the hashtag: #pullupachair.
