Wow. Can you believe the weather we are having? When’s winter gonna get here?!
 
 
I’ve been on strike since the Christmas baking frenzy ended, using only the rangetop portion of my stove to cook, but the month of January is half gone and that means I am once again getting the urge to bake. Cookies. It’s all I can think about.
 
 
But I only like the soft kinds. Enter the Maple Bacon Bourbon and Pecan Cookie… it’s delightful and I am in love. Definitely think you oughta bookmark this page for next Christmas because you’re gonna want to make these cookies again – and soon!

2 tablespoons of your favorite bourbon

Fold in the pecan pieces and bacon and mix the batter well.

There’s no such thing as leftover cookies at my house (what an oxymoron, right?) but let’s just pretend for a moment that, hypothetically, you have enough to make the recipe below.

Cookie Crusted Pork Tenderloin Sliders Recipe

 
 
Ingredients:
 
 
Cookies, made according to recipe above
 
1 cup breadcrumbs
 
1/3 cup prepared brown mustard
 
Salt and pepper
 
One 3-pound pork tenderloin, cut in half lengthwise
 
1 can whole berry cranberry sauce
 
24 slider buns
 
Optional:
 
Mayonnaise
 
Sliced onions
 
Lettuce
 
 
Directions:
 
 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees  and line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
 
Break the cookies into large chunks. Next, combine cookies and breadcrumbs together and pulse in food processor until crumbly. Remove two cups of the crumbs and place on a separate baking sheet.
 
In a small bowl, stir together the mustard and a dash of the salt and pepper. Coat tenderloins with mustard mixture and roll in cookie crumbs mixture. Place on the prepared baking sheet.
 
Bake until a meat thermometer inserted in the tenderloin registers about 155 degrees F, which should take approximately 25 to 35 minutes. Remove tenderloin from the oven and let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
 
To serve, thinly slice the tenderloin crosswise and place on bottom buns with 1 or 2 teaspoons of cranberry sauce on the underside. Top the sliced pork with mayonnaise, onions and lettuce, if you like.
 
Then cover with the bun top and serve warmed, or room temperature.
