Spicy popcorn cookies

So I have had a recipe from Joy the Baker for popcorn cookies in my back pocket for awhile. However, the recipe called for you to pop popcorn on the stove and that always stopped me from making them. Then B brought home this:

So, I had to try it. I made the recipe, with the help of J:

I did tablespoonfuls of the mix on a silpat mat:
