Bacon and Eggnog Cookies:The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2011

Christmas and cookies, as Cal Naughton would say, go together like Chinese food and chocolate pudding. So imagine my delight when I stumbled across a blog post inviting me to join in on The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap of 2011. Here's the deal: I signed up to send one dozen cookies to three fellow food bloggers. And as I sent mine out, one dozen cookies from three other food bloggers (three dozen total) would be sent my way. 

I knew I wanted to bake something traditional, but with a twist. My train of thought went a little something like this: Christmas-y, Christmas-y. What's Christmas-y? Fruit! Alright, booze in a cookie is a good start but what goes with eggnog besides nothing? Hmmm, eggnog. What is nog? Wait...nog...egg. What goes with eggs? Bacon!!! So Bacon and Eggnog Cookies were born.

The base recipe is Mrs. Field's Eggnog Cookies; I just added a little bit of awesome (i.e., candied bacon).
