1 cup of Cooked Bacon Chopped
2 eggs
2 teaspoons of Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup of Milk

Cut the butter (chilled) into the flour
 *if you don't have the proper dough cutter gizmo for that, a food processor also works just fine.
You can use a whisk and simply jab at the mixture until it is the consistency of thick lumpy sand (like you are making a pie crust)


After you have achieved this, go ahead and mix in the remaining ingredients (except for the chocolate chips and bacon)

*definitely use a nice bendy spatula for this task!
 if you use the whisk, it all gets stuck inside and is a pain in the booty to get out.
 Also avoid using your hands. This dough is very sticky! It has a magical impossible to remove texture. and it is evil. but yummy.

Now flatten out your dough and mold it into the shape of a long rectangle.

Now, using a knife, cute that big boy into several small triangles. 

Place those little guy onto a greased baking sheet. (I used bacon grease! Eeeeeeee!)

Top them off with some yummy little bacon niblets. oooooooh yeeeeeah
