Cookie #11 - Corn Pops Cookie

Another entry into my top five cereals is Corn Pops.  I love how they get squishy in milk and how dry, they're slightly sticky. 
I knew I wanted to attempt a cornmeal cookie and I figured it would be the perfect vehicle to try and duplicate that Corn Pop flavor.
I'm happy to announce:  I SUCCEEDED! 
I'm doing to super happy cookie success dance in my living room right now. 
The cookies have the texture of cornbread because of the cornmeal.  I added honey to the mix and topped them with a honey glaze.  The two flavors combined and these cookies taste just like a big bowl of Corn Pops.

So I took this batch of cookies to share with my eager co-workers and I forgot to take a picture. 

Corn Pop Cookies

1/2 cup butter
2/3 cups granulated sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup flour
1 tbsp honey

1 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp honey
2-4 tbsp milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cream butter and sugar together.  Add egg and vanilla until well combined.  Add salt, baking powder and cornmeal.  Add flour slowly.  Mix in honey.
Drop by rounded tablespoons onto parchment lined baking sheets.  Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown around the edges.  Transfer to a wire rack to cool
For glaze:  whisk sugar, honey and milk together to form a loose glaze.  Spoon over warm cookies.

These are amazing! They might be my new favorite cookie. My boyfriend loves Corn Pops, so he'll have to weigh in on them later tonight. Sooo good. I only put the glaze on half btw.

Just came back to add that they got the seal of approval from him too. Huge hit in our house.

By the way, I think with the glaze they're closer to American Corn Pops, and without they're closer to Canadian Corn Pops.

Thanks :)
