#46: Maple Bacon Choco Chip Ice Cream Sammies 

Hi hi hi hi hi hi hi!

When I was working at Wendy’s like 5 years ago, Clare and I had this idea for a TV show called Get To The Point.  It was a workplace comedy about the Egyptians who built the pyramids.  The main character was this real long-winded dumdum and all of the other pyramid-builders (slaves, really, weren’t they? yeesh) – anyway – they’d be like “GET TO THE POINT!”  But also – they’d be like getting to the point of the pyramid as well…..  DOUBLE MEANING!

The show would have loads of great little stories – like when the pharaoh died and one of the characters had to help with the brain-removal surgery (spoiler alert – they removed it through the nose!  WOULDN’T YOU LIKE TO SEE THAT!!!!?  I WOULD!).  Another show would be about a sexy mix-up between a hieroglyphics artist and the court priestess.  SEXY MIX-UPS!!!!  Maybe Cleopatra (Jennifer Hudson) shows up for a cameo during May Sweeps!

I was just thinking about that show again during my morning run.  It has literally nothing to do with this recipe whatsoever.  I just really want to watch a show about pyramids.  Is that too much to ask?

OK Team – Here’s the recipe for these mamma-jammas:

2 sticka butter

3/4 cuppa brown sugar

3/4 cuppa gran sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp maple syrup or maple extract

2 cuppa flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

a handful of cooked bacon pieces

a handful of choco chips

obv – a shit-ton of vanilla ice cream

BLOG NOTE 1.  I pinched this recipe from AllRecipes.com.  Check that out for legit instructions, but really, just mix all this junk together (minus the ice cream) and bake at 350 for 11 minutes.

BLOG NOTE 2 – If you want big visible chunks of chocolate or bacon – don’t mix it all in.  Save some of your choco and bacon until after the cookies are plopped on the baking sheets.  Flatten out your dough with your hands.  Then put some of your choco bits and bacon on top.

OK – Now then.  Chill your cooked-up cookies in the freezer.  Then, plop on heaping blobs of ice cream on and cram these into your mouth ASAP.  Then brush your teeth and take a nap.  When you’re up from your nap, go for a 10 mile run and vow to eat salads for a week.  Yay!
