For the cookies in the morning, my daughter wanted to make chocolate chip cookies, so I busted out a tried and true cookie recipe for this one...Whole Wheat Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.
I have made these cookies many times, with many different fillings. Sometimes it's basic chocolate, or my favorite, butterscotch chips. This time it was a fancy bag of Nestlé's 50/50 Dark Chocolate Chips and Mint Chips...very seasonal.
After finishing the cookies, it was time to start on my 'grown-up' dessert for the evening. When it's time to break out the big guns, I usually have to 'go-to' sources, Alton Brown, or The Range. In this case, I went with Brigid, because she just recently posted a recipe for Bacon Butterscotch Brownies with a Salted Caramel glaze.
More than a few eye-brows were raised when I described what was on the plate...and those that were brave enough to try them, enjoyed them. The one thing to note, is that Brigid was just looking to make a small batch of brownies...so what you see on that plate is the result of quadrupling the recipe(well, doubling it twice...made two 8 X 8 pans, using two 12-ounce packages of bacon.)
