makes about 48 cookies

2-1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup toffee bits
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 + 1/2 cup (about 10 slices) baked bacon, crumbled

Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease 2 cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.

Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in a stand mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs; beat well. Gradually add flour mixture, beating on slow speed until well blended. Mix in toffee bits, 3/4 cup crumbled bacon and chocolate chips. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill for at least two hours to overnight. This will help prevent the cookies from spreading when you bake them.

Remove dough from the fridge 10 minutes before baking. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto prepared cookie sheet. Top each cookie with the 1/2 cup bacon crumbles. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool slightly then switch from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
