Maple Bacon Pecan Cookies

This weekend is all about brining and smoking fresh caught salmon. You know, the flavors of apple wood, maple syrup, and maybe some bourbon?
I came across a recipe from Heather Christo that she posted on Twitter, for cookies with similar ingredients. 'Tis the weekend for Maple Bacon Pecan Cookies, with a side of smoked salmon!

Maple Bacon Pecan Cookies
1 cup of butter, softened
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon maple extract
2 Tablespoons bourbon
2 1/4 flour (I used gluten free)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups pecans, chopped
1/2 cup crispy cooked applewood bacon, chopped

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and brown sugar.
Add eggs mixing well between each addition. Add maple extract and bourbon and mix again.

In another bowl combine flour, salt, and baking soda.  Add dry mixture to batter and mix until dough is sticky.
Add pecans and bacon to batter and mix well.
Drop by heaping teaspoon onto silpat lined baking sheet.
Bake 12 minutes. Remove from baking sheet and cool on baking racks.
