Last night, myself and the lovely Hannah H had a dinner date so we could swap life stories and share some of our cookies. Having heard about her baking skills and culinary reputation, I knew I had to bake up something pretty special to impress. So I went all out and made some popcorn, pecan and chocolate chip cookies. I was rather proud of them.
I found a recipe after searching for popcorn cookie recipes. Having had so much fun popping corn on Friday, me and my frugal thinking lead me to figure out how else I could use them. In Hannah’s own words, before she’d even tasted them she said that they ‘smell like the cinema’. Oh and they’re so easy to make. Just a standard cookie mixture and some tasty additions.
To make them, you’ll need:
115g of butter
130g caster sugar
130g plain flour
1/2 tspn baking soda
1 tspn vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
Three handfuls of crushed popcorn
One handful of crushed pecans
One small handful of choc chips
- Cream together your butter and sugar in a bowl, then beat in the egg and vanilla extract.
- Combine the flour, baking soda and salt and mix into the butter cream mixture. Slow add your tasty ingredients.
- Spoon out on a lightly greased baking sheet a good few cms apart (I used two trays). Cook at 180 degrees for 13-15 minutes.
- Leave to cook on a wire rack and enjoy (with a glass of cold milk).
As I blog, I’m enjoying Hannah’s delicious apple and cinnamon bakes – that girl can bake! Swapping baked treats is so much fun!
What’s your favourite unusual cookie recipe? Comment below and I’ll see if I can give it a try 🙂
