breakfast cookies

(adapted from a recipe at Cookin' in the 'Cuse)

Breakfast Cookies

1/2 pound bacon
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup of flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups corn flakes
1 cup shredded cheese (I used cheddar-jack)

Cook bacon until crisp, drain well, and break into pieces. Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. Combine flour and baking soda; stir into butter mixture. Stir in bacon, mult-grain flakes and cheese. It will be about the consistency of chocolate chip cookie dough.

Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet. Space 2 inches apart. Bake for 15-18 minutes at 350. Remove to rack to cool--about 2 minutes, then remove from rack.

You could also double this recipe and spread the whole mixture onto a baking sheet and then cut into bars.
