Bacon Maple Shortbread

Happy New Year!  It's been a little bit since Ive posted and I apologize.  I have to confess, I havent been eating the healthiest the past few weeks or working out like I usually do, which totally sucks but, Im not back on the horse.

I actually made these for my boyfriend who -- like most normal humans -- completely loves bacon.  It's his favourite food group.  Haha.  When I looked at the calorie count, I realized that this would be perfect for the blog.

Recipe from Closet Cooking.
