Buttered Popcorn Cookies.
I was curious too. But for some reason, when I returned to The Smitten Kitchen's cookbook this morning, I expected to see *chocolate chips* in my list of ingredients.
Isn't that what I'd seen? Hadn't that been the appeal and cause for my return this week?
Apparently not. On closer inspection, those little brown spots in Deb's cookies/pictures turned out to be nothing more than the tops of cookies cooked to golden brown perfection. :(
And so I thought, "What the heck..." and "Who cares?!" and "I'm putting chocolate chips into my buttered popcorn cookies!"
I actually baked half the dough to exact instruction, and then baked the second half with 3/4 C of milk chocolate morsels folded in. Both were great, but the buttered popcorn cookies with chocolate were just that much more fun!
You can Google Smitten Kitchen's Buttered Popcorn Cookies recipe, but please don't forget to add 1-1/2 C of chocolate chips to your batter. ;)
