After a baconful weekend, I came into work with the usual Monday morning blues. That is until my intern came in with home-made bacon chocolate chip cookies! His amazingly decadent recipe was based off the cookies he used to make at Levain Bakery on the UWS—obviously substituting butter with bacon grease and adding bits of bacon. A nice, extra bacon-y touch: the chocolate chips are actually chunks of Vosges Bacon Bar! He may learn nothing from me at this job... but at least he was inspired my bacon grease cookies! I think these are WAY better—thanks Roberto!!
