Leftover bacon fat

We're pretty big fans of bacon. With so many fresh eggs, it's very tempting to throw on a piece of bacon to go with our breakfast. Over the past couple of weeks, we've wound up with a ton of leftover grease. We decided to mix it up with some of our chicken scratch and food, and gave it to them. They absolutely loved it.

Next time, I think I'll try making cookies with it. You can use it instead of butter or shortening, like in the following recipe:

1 c. bacon grease or lard
1 c. sugar
1 egg, beaten
4 tbsp. molasses
2 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. cinnamon

Sounds delicious!
