Buttered Popcorn....love it. Chocolate chips...love them. Put them together into a cookie??? Ex-squeeze me??!!
Okay, I'm game. Let's try these (even though hubbie has already pooh-poohed them...even though he hasn't tried them....and now he's making me doubt them). For shame, hubby, for shame.
Popcorn has been popped. And okay, maybe I am seeing the hubbie's point of view about popcorn not being fully popped and then it being hard to chew. But I've carefully picked through all the popcorn to take out any un-popped and half popped kernels.
It's all good...even though I just took a few popcorn pieces and did indeed get a couple of tough bits. But I'm forging on with this cookie recipe. I need this to work out. (And not just because I wanna say, 'nah, nah told ya so', to my hubbie. I wouldn't do that! Truth? I'd totally do that. And am getting my 'told you so' pants on. (this in no way should imply I'm not wearing pants now.)
I just ate a bit of the cookie dough ('cause that's how I roll...and maybe why I roll....a little). Anyhoo, am now picking popcorn bits out of my teeth. Damn it. This is not feeling like an, 'I told you so moment'.
Cookies have been baked and are cooling (fingers are crossed). Kettle has been put on, 'cause really can you have a cookie without a cup of tea? Probably.
I found this recipe on Joy the Baker's site. Joy adapted the recipe from the Smitten Kitchen cookbook. This book is now on my wish list.
