makes 12 big cookies

3/4 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons thawed frozen orange juice concentrate
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
1 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
6 strips bacon, cooked very crisp, drained and crumbled
1/2 cup Grape-Nuts

Preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium bowl, beat together butter, sugar, egg, orange juice concentrate and peel, until light and fluffy. Add flour and baking powder, beating until well blended. Stir in bacon and cereal, stirring only until incorporated. Using an ice cream scoop (I used a big one), drop 3 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until edges are golden. Remove cookies from sheets while still warm and cool on racks.
