Rich and tender shortbread cookies made with bacon fat.

Recipe Ingredients for Bacon shortbread

3/4 cup butter, room temperature
3/4 cup lard, room temperature (rendered bacon fat)
1 cup sugar
2 tsp. salt
3 egg yolks
2 T. vanilla extract
3 3/4 cup All-Purpose flour

Recipe Directions for Bacon shortbread

  1. In a medium bowl combine the butter, bacon fat, sugars and salt and cream until well blended or about 2 minutes. Add the egg yolks one at a time, making sure each yolk is well incorporated before moving on to the next. Stir in the vanilla. Add the flour and mix until just combined.

  2. Roll the dough into a log (or multiple logs as this makes a hefty amount of dough) on wax or parchment paper. Refrigerate until firm. If you plan to use the dough for ice cream sandwiches make sure the log is big enough to produce cookies large enough to hold plenty of ice cream. My cookies were about 3-4 inches wide.

  3. When ready to bake pre-heat your oven to 325*. Carefully slice the cookies 1/4-inch thick. Arrange on a parchment lined sheet tray and bake for 10-15 minutes or until the edges are golden.

  4. *If you can find some or have it on hand try replacing some of the sugar with Maple sugar. I?m sure it would be completely fantastic.
