Is bacon still cool?
Bacon’s always cool, right?
I feel like I can’t keep up with the trends anymore. I’m getting old.
Years ago I told you guys about the time I made those awesome bacon cookies for a football party and none of our guests were brave enough to try them until they saw someone else eat one first. (There wasn’t a cookie left at the end of the night, for the record.)
I don’t understand that reaction. It’s BACON.
If I see something with bacon in it, I want it. I want 10 of them. Because, duh, bacon.
I made these shortcakes and I’m almost positive I’ll get at least 4 “EWWW!” comments but you guys, they are so good. There’s bacon in the cakes and then you make a sauce of caramel, sliced bananas, and more bacon. And then you top it off with peanut butter whipped cream.
Which btw, peanut butter whipped cream? Quite possible the greatest thing on earth. I feel like I had that exact reaction the first time I made peanut butter cream cheese frosting so I don’t know why it took me so long to make peanut butter whipped cream. But it is perfection. Now that I know this, I probably won’t be fitting in my ball dress come December.
You should make these. And when your friends walk in and say “Ewww, bacon shortcakes?” just eat them all yourself. It’ll be more fun that way anyway.
