Bacon has always been wildly popular for breakfast. Then it began popping up in sandwiches for lunch and entrees for dinner. And now it’s slowly starting its dessert takeover – which is perfectly fine if you ask us! We love bacon for every occasion, including the holiday cookie exchange. So to help you bake treats that are totally unique this year, we’ve rounded up some of the most tempting-looking recipes for Christmas cookies with bacon we could find.
