Bacon Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies
February 21, 2022
These are the ooey-gooey, chunky chocolate chip cookies of your dreams. Well, as long as you’re not a vegetarian. This is actually a pretty traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe, but we substituted some of the butter with bacon fat reserved from our breakfast frying pan. They don’t taste like bacon, or even bacon fat (though if you know what you’re looking for you might be able to detect it), but because lard has a higher smoke point than butter, these cookies are soft and gooey on the inside and out. And thanks to the Anova Precision Oven’s steam and convection fan, they cook quickly and evenly, too.
Note: This recipe makes enough dough for about 30 cookies and five fit well on the tray included with your Anova Precision Oven. You can bake multiple trays at once, cook in batches, or freeze the unused dough for a future late-night snack.
