The two locations of chef Ryan Scott's eatery Market & Rye are known for having creative desserts such as endless remixes of Twinkies and fully loaded cookies like the Kitchen Sink, which carries an arsenal of pretzels, potato chips, butterscotch chips, and chocolate chips. A new cookie variety is a tribute to the infamous tastes of the late Elvis Presley.

The King Cookie is, at its heart, a really good peanut butter cookie, with crispy edges and a soft middle. But because Elvis has come to symbolize overindulgence with food, it's also got chewy shards of bacon mixed in and a crunchy mixture of chopped peanuts, banana chips, and sea salt flakes on top. It is a smart appropriation of the indulgent sandwich that Elvis called his favorite: Peanut butter, banana, and bacon.
