Oatmeal Cookies with White Chocolate, Apricots and Bacon

Oatmeal Cookies with White Chocolate, Apricots and Bacon

Our Improv Challenge, hosted by Kristen of Frugal Antics of a Harried Housewife, has two hubby approved ingredients this month: bacon and eggs. He would have loved if I whipped up a bacon and egg sandwich or even something more gourmet like scrambled eggs in a prosciutto cup ( I DO want to make those one day). But, instead, I went straight to cookies. I’d given up cookie dough for Lent…and had a mad cravings for oatmeal cookie dough. So I finally bit the bullet (I few years behind the trend) and added some bacon to a dessert with these Oatmeal Cookies with White Chocolate, Apricots and Bacon.

  • 2 sticks butter, at room temperature
