Oatmeal Raisin POPCORN Cookies!

Wait! Wait! Before you click away upon seeing the word "raisin," I beg you to give these a chance.

I, too, am not a lover of the raisin. In certain recipes, though, they work. This is one of them.

My dad has been in town over the last week and it's been so, so nice having him here. My dad is the easiest house guest...he even stops at the grocery store on the way to our house and picks up beer. Maybe I'd get invited more places if I did that.

Perfecto Popcorn

*this post lived on the savory section of the blog (the section I have abandoned and neglected for years). You need this recipe/method in your life, but you'll really need it later this week for a cookie recipe. :) *

I grew up in a house with a popcorn aficionado.  My dad popped popcorn on the stove after dinner more nights than not.  There was no Jiffy Pop, no air poppers, no *gasp* microwave popcorn...just plain ol' popcorn popped with a little oil on the stove.

Dad held the BIG bowl and we got little bowls to dip in to get our share.  We could go back as many times as we wanted, but dad always held onto that big bowl. ;)

Is this like being on the Wheaties box?

Last year, my friends at Imperial Sugar asked if I'd be interested in making some cookies to go on their new powdered sugar packaging.
Wait. WHAT???

Of course, the answer was, "Yes! Of course!" And the in the back of my mind, I was thinking, "Maybe they emailed the wrong person."

Anyhoo, last week the boxes finally arrived in my grocery store. I might of stopped dead in my tracks, then spent a few minutes straightening the display. Then, I took a picture and totally forgot what else I was there to purchase.

Peanut Butter and Honey Sandwich Cookies

You could also call these cookies Honeyed Fluffernutter Cookies. Or A Honey of a Peanut Butter Cookie. Or Marshmallow-Filled Honey Peanut Butter Cookies.
Today, I'm calling them lunch.

You might know Wholesome!™ for their natural, dry sugar, but did you know they have liquid sweeteners as well? Wholesome!™ sent me a box of goodies (talk about a sweet mail day) and I used their Organic Honey for this recipe.
