Have you ever gone to the movies and had leftover popcorn? Yea, me neither.

But if you do have some left over popcorn, bring it home and bake these sweet and salty cookies.
They are addictive!
I went to see Captain Philips the other day and my friend didn’t finish her bag (gasp!), so I came home and made these cookies. But you don’t need theater popcorn – in fact, making it the old fashioned way creates the best result.

Enjoy!
P.S. Here is a wee tip: use your hands to combine the 4 cups of popcorn into the dough mixture – it’s ok if the popcorn breaks up!
Method:
1) Preheat oven to 350F.
2)In a large town, cream together softened butter, brown sugar, granulates sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth.
