yields four servings

8 tablespoons butter, softened
4 tablespoons bacon fat, chilled
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
12 ounces white chocolate chips
3/4 cup macadamia nuts
1 cup bacon, cooked and chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream together butter, bacon fat, brown sugar and sugar with a mixer. Beat until smooth. Scrape the sides. Gently incorporate eggs, add vanilla and continue beating for a couple of seconds. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, salt and baking soda. Pour flour mixture into butter, sugar and egg mix and whisk until all of the flour is incorporated. Scrape down the sides with a spatula. Add white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts to the mixture. Mix until chocolate and nuts are evenly distributed throughout batter. Add chopped bacon pieces, then chill batter for 10-20 minutes in refrigerator. Cut batter into uniform portions, and place on cookie sheet. Place in preheated oven for 12-16 minutes based on thickness of cookies. Rotate the pan halfway through. Let cool before serving.
