Buttered Popcorn Cookies (Secret Recipe Club)

New month, new SRC post! Love and Flour was my assignment this month and there were lots of great recipes to choose from! Ultimately, I decided on what ended up being a big crowd pleaser (mainly for the adults!) at a friend’s BBQ.

You can’t go wrong here…


If you’re a sweet and salty fan, you will LOVE these! And I bet if you added M&Ms they’d be even better 🙂

Hope you enjoy all of this month’s picks!

Buttered Popcorn Cookies
slightly adapted from Love and Flour

4 cups popped popcorn (I used microwave popcorn)
1 1/4 AP flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk flour and baking soda together. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars together until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and mix until combined. Stir in dry ingredients and mix.

Fold in popcorn (it will break a little bit…it’s okay!) and drop heaping tablespoons onto parchment paper lined baking sheets. Space about 2 inches apart. Bake for 8-12 minutes, until edges are light brown.
