popcorn streusel tops

These Popcorn Streusel Tops are corny little cookies. Actually they are really fun and tasty. A cornmeal-corn kernel shortbread that’s topped with streusel and popcorn makes a cookie dressed for a party. Baked in rings or muffin tins, these reminded me a lot of Dorie’s famous Jammer cookies, but with corn and without jam. I liked them very much, but the wheels in my dessert brain are always spinning, and after tasting them, I am convinced that they can be tweaked very well into the Jammer format. I am imagining making the corn cookie base, adding a bloop of either strawberry or blueberry jam on top of each cookie and then ringing the jam with the popcorn-streusel mix. Sounds good, right? I’ll try this one day and report back.

  1. I like your thinking – yes, a Jammer version of these cookies would be great. I enjoyed these cookies – strange combo, but it works.

  2. This was definitely a strange combo but it worked so well! Yours are so pretty! I needed to add more popcorn to the tops!

  3. We really enjoyed these corny cookies. My husband has been raving about them all week.
