You know what? I'm so glad that I love to try unique recipes because the title of these cookies alone, might have scared me away! I'm very happy it didn't! These cookies were so very good! I thought they were going to be a very savory cookie, but they're not! These Bak Kwa cookies are very similar to a shortbread cookie. Slightly sweet and very buttery! The bacon bits just gives the cookie a little hint of smokiness and a nice chewiness! This is a crisp but crumbly cookie. I truly enjoyed these and will make them again!
I found this recipe *here* on a blog called 'No-Frills Recipes'.
I'm posting the recipe below with conversion from metric, to make it easier for my U.S. readers.
3 1/2 Tbls. sugar
4 1/2 oz. butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour - sifted
3 Tbls. Bak Kwa - (I used pre-packaged bacon bits)
Cream butter and sugar together.
Add in egg and vanilla extract.
Add in bacon bits. Mix well to combine.
Then fold in flour to form a dough.
Shape into a firm log 10" long x 2" wide x 1 1/2" high
Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
Then slice into 1/4 " thick slices and place on parchment lined cookie sheet.
Bake in preheated oven at 355 degrees for 16-18 minutes or until lightly browned on edges.
