1.  Preheat oven to 375º.

2.  Fry bacon 'til crisp, but be careful not to burn! Drain on paper towels.

3.  Mix together peanut butter, butter, brown sugar, white sugar, egg, vanilla. Add flour, baking soda, and salt.

4.  Line cookie sheets (1 if making 6 cookies; work in batches if necessary when making 3 dozen) with parchment. Lay halved slices of bacon down, roughly 3.5 - 4" apart. Using a regular spoon, scoop out spoonfuls of dough. Roll the cookie dough gently between your palms then barely press down on top of the center of one piece of bacon. Repeat until you've used up all the batter.

5.  Freeze the prepared cookie dough for about 15 minutes or refrigerate 1 hour.

6.  Bake 10-12 minutes. Oven times vary! Keep an eye on them. Let cool on baking sheet for about 10 minutes then transfer to a wire cooling rack. Let cool at least 30 minutes.

7.  Create glaze:

8.  Mix together powdered sugar, a hefty few shakes of cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Add a bit of milk (just a little!) and whisk til smooth. This process is highly personal, so add a bit more cinnamon if you like. Prefer a thinner glaze? Add a bit more milk. Want a more frosting-like consistency? Add hardly any milk at all. It's up to you! It'll taste great regardless.

9.  Drizzle on completely cooled cookies.
