Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Well, I tried a new recipe yesterday as Jeff was intrigued by the whole bacon chocolate chip cookie recipe. These came out ok, they tasted ok, but they remind me of why I don't bake cookies with all butter. They came out flat and crisp! Not sure I would make again, but they were fun to try.
