Very Easy


Number of serving: 6
4 slices thick cut bacon, chopped finely

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 cup finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1 stick softened butter, cut into cubes

1 large egg

1 egg yolk

2 tablespoons heavy cream


  • In a large skillet over medium high heat cook the chopped bacon until very crisp. Drain on paper towel.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer combine the flour, cayenne pepper, butter, egg, egg yolk, and cream. Mix until well combined.
  • Add the shredded cheese and crisp bacon to the work bowl and mix on low speed until combined.
  • Turn the dough out on to a lightly floured board and roll into a log about 1 1/2 around. Wrap the log in plastic wrap and chill for at least two hours.
  • During the last half hour of chilling heat your oven to 350 F. Once chilled slice into 1/4 thick disks and place about 1/2 apart on an un-greased cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 18 to 25 minutes, or until the cookies are just turning golden abound the edges and the cookies are firm to the touch.
  • Cool on a rack until they are slightly warm.

    Store them in air-tight container when they are are completely cool down and can keep well for 2 days
