  3. Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of dough onto 2 parchment paper–lined baking sheets, about 2 inches (5 cm) apart.  
  4. Bake, in batches, in centre of oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until bottoms are lightly golden. Let cool in pans on racks for 2 minutes. Transfer directly to racks; let cool completely.
  • Cook bacon, in batches, in a skillet set over medium heat, for 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp; drain on a paper towel–lined plate until cool enough to handle. Use fingers to crumble into pieces.
  • Cook bacon in 425F (220C) oven on parchment paper–lined rimmed baking sheet if desired.
